This should come to no surprise, but Iceland is number one on the Human Development Index and has been vote the most livable country in the world.

From our powerful nature to the streets of Reykjavík, Iceland is literally bursting with energy like never before. That’s why now isn’t a time to stay away, this is a time to get closer.


Clean and safe: The capital city of Reykjavik, with its 190,000 inhabitants, is probably one of the cleanest and safest cities in the world. Its plentiful resources of geothermal energy ensure clean air and unpolluted water giving both citizens and visitors a unique sense of liveliness and contentment. Reykjavik has become recognized for its pure energy, thriving culture, sparkling night-life and creative atmosphere.

One of the benefits of visiting a small city is that you never have to walk very far to get to where you’re going. With its long easy-going main street (Laugavegur), Reykjavik offers diversity to tourists at a friendly pace with quaint boutiques, book stores, galleries, delis, cafes and restaurants dotting the historic downtown area.

This should come to no surprise, but Iceland is number one on the Human Development Index and has been vote the most livable country in the world.

Land of contrasts: The island of contrasts, where heaven and earth meet, and where the Sagas of the Vikings were written, a land of glaciers, erupting volcanoes and the magnificent midnight sun. In Iceland you will find everything you need to make your vacation, conference or incentive successful and memorable. Hotels, conference facilities, support services and modern comforts are as good as anywhere in the rest of Western Europe. There is a multitude of bars and fine restaurants in Reykjavík.

Car: Not Necessary

This cosy,clean and well maintained apartment is located on the main road in Reykjavik 'Laugavegur' but on the quieter end.

The closest supermarket you can view from your entrance door open 24/7 Few minutes walking and you have all the main restaurants, a wonderful warm outdoor swimming pools with hot tubs and steam baths, the national theatre, cinemas, museums and tourist information. Easy, free parking if you want to rent a car.

Comparing price on accommodation in Reykjavik : our unit's are over 50 msq. price for one week in high season, for up to 4 people is around 910€ . Price in a 3 star hotel only few m away your pay over 1.800€ for double room.in June

Stands Out

What makes Iceland stand out as a venue is its unique natural beauty and absence of pollution. Dramatic volcano and glacier scenery-and conversely, action packed incentives are there waiting to be enjoyed by visitors. Reykjavík, the capital city is next door to nature. Iceland is only about a 3-hour flight from most European cities and 5 hours from the North American.

Other Activities: Family Park in Laugardalur is just 10 min. walk

Golf: Iceland not entirely white, it’s greener than you think.

People always say those Vikings were pulling a fast one when they called us Iceland and not Greenland but now we have even greater reason than ever to be called Green Iceland! Over 70% of our total energy consumption is from hydro- and geothermal sources and Reykjavik was the site for the world’s first commercial hydrogen refuelling station, opened in 2003.

Continually looking for the next big thing, we are extending Iceland’s green credentials from land to water, with Reykjavik whale-watching company - ‘Elding – adventure at sea’ unveiling the first commercial vessel to trial the use of hydrogen in April. Shame it isn’t helium, we could have had some macho sailors with high- pitched voices.

Ski: Hiking n Iceland

The Hengill/Nesjavellir area in South Iceland is an outdoor sports paradise, with a variety of 160 km of marked and challenging hiking and biking trails in a region of high-temperature geothermal areas, hot springs, volcanic craters, lava fields, rivers and lakes. Besides hiking and mountain biking, you can also go fishing on Lake Þingvallavatn (Iceland's largest lake), visit Þingvellir National Park, tour the Hengill geothermal power plant and go horseback riding

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I am born and bread in Iceland. A Yoga teacher and a mother of 3 children. Now I live part of the year in France . I love to be in Iceland as much as possible. The longer I stay in a foreign country the more I see how special and beautiful my own country is. So clean, so pure, so save and so much space for everyone. Namaste! Berta

Why the Owner Chose Holt, Reykjavík, Iceland:
Great location both to explore what this beautiful city has to offer and for your drop offs after your trips outside the city. Free parking if you have your own car. You will love the center of Reykjavik, so full of life and very creative. Being able to walk everywhere, easy shopping for food will not only safe you money but a lot of time. Only few minute walk and you are by the sea overlooking the bay and our proud and joy the mountain ESJAN. You can easily jump on a bus if you want to go out of town. The bus station is only few meters away. In this apartment I have created a cosy and warm home away from home. A place I love to stay my self when I am in Iceland. Our flat has the perfect location to enjoy everything the city has to offer. This area is on the edge of postal code 101 the most-central area/postal code of the city.It will give you the opportunity to walk to everywhere and still be in a comfortable distance from the party zone and night life area. Grocery shops just few m away open 24/7 . Free parking at the back of the building Reykjavik is an extremely nice city full of culture, good restaurants and sights - and close to wonderful nature. The city's populations is small (only 122.000 in the city itself, 202.000 in the metropolitan area), but as an European capital there is a lot going on within and around the city. We live in walking distance from many of Reykjavik's best known landmarks, museums and restaurants - and right by the harbor with its great view, seafood restaurant, micro-brewery, bars and cafe's. From the harbor/port area you can also take the ferry out to Viðey island, do various sightseeing tours on boat and and go whale watching. There are good walking & running paths that go from our neighborhood along Reykjavik's beautiful shoreline. One path takes you out of the city to the Grótta lighthouse (30 min walk, there is a hidden hot tub there by the sea) and another through the city (by Harpa Concert House) and so much more...

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Privacy, private entrance for unit 1 and entrance through community entrance for unit 2. No tiring steps to walk up after a long day out. Free and easy parking if you have your own car, but here it's also so easy to be with out a car. So easy to get picked up and dropped off after your day trips out of Reykjavik. This location makes it so easy and convinent to enjoy on foot everything Reykjavik has to offer.
