About the Property

2 bedroom cottage in rural location, sleeps 6

A beautiful, comfortable and cosy cottage located at the end of Skorradalsvatn in the valley Skorradalur with a stunning view over the lake. This is a heavily grown area with lots of hiking possibilities for the whole family. The cottage has two bedrooms, one with a double bed (150 cm) and one with two single beds (bunk bed 80 cm), a Loft with some mattresses. Kitchen with good facilities, dining area and the living room, TV, VHS, old functional radio. WC/shower.
The terrace (15sqm) is a on three sides of the cottage with garden furniture, so you´ll be able to catch the sun from early morning until sunset. Above the cottage is another patio with a play house for kids and a swing for two.
There is a parking place by the road. Right beneath the parking place there is the waterfront, a beautiful place to relax, play or fish. The cottage is in the middle of the hill and there is quite a walk up the hill but very worth the while.

Borgarnes and Snæfellsnes: Day-trips to Snæfellsnes, Breiðafjörður (the island of Flatey) and the southern part of the Westfjords show the best Iceland has to offer; amazing landscapes, countless hiking trails, boat trips and whale-watching to name a few.

The town of Borgarnes is only a 30 min away where you'll find all necessary services; medical service, supermarkets, gas stations, restaurants, banks, pharmacy, liquor store, museum etc.

There are many public pools with hot tubs in the area. Ideal to visit after a busy day of activity in this beautiful area.

The cottage is located in Skorradalur, a valley just over an hours drive from Reykjavik. It is a favourite for many Icelanders and has become one of the most sought-after cottage areas in Iceland due to mild and calm weather and exceptional nature. It has great hiking trails through forests and heavily grown areas, along the beach of lake Skorradalsvatn where you can also go fly fishing. Activities in the area such as horseback riding, playing golf until well after midnight in the summer and kick back in one of the many geothermal pools in the area. Skorradalur is ideally located if you want to explore the west of Iceland as short trips can be made to Húsafell and the surrounding glaciers, waterfalls such as Barnafossar and Glymur and historical places like Reykholt, Borg á Mýrum, the valley of Norðurárdalur are well within an hours drive as is national park of Þingvellir. Day-trips to Snæfellsnes, Breiðafjörður and the southern part of the Westfjords show the best Iceland has to offer.
