Amazing beauty, peaceful, nature and far exceeded our expectations. If you are planning a girls trip, a family getaway, a fishing trip away from it all - you will not be disappointed. Our guide has thought of everything. The yurts are cozy, the island-to-table dinner...More

Its hard to explain the magic of the place. In its simplicity, there is a raw beauty and cleanliness to the experience that sort of whipped our souls clean and prepared us for our 10 days in Iceland. Hakon’s island was our first stop and...More

About
Description
Traustholtshólmi is a place of stunning beauty, untouched by modern development. Experience the sustainable and restricted island in the wide and historic Þjórsá river. Get close to the Island’s More unspoiled nature and participate in island life. For accommodation, three private Yurts are available and each can sleep two adults and two children. The Yurts are fully made up with down bedspreads and offer a unique and unusual experience, with breathtaking views of the river and Eyjafjallajökull glacier. When the nights start to get darker, the Northern lights come out over Traustholtshólmi and are simply mesmerizing due to the absence of light pollution. The guests can observe the lights as their reflection dances on the river. Guests can choose to rent one individual Yurt, or all three for exceptional privacy and seclusion. Tailored to both personal preferences and every group’s individual dynamic, each visit is sure to be unique; and every visitor is free to go and explore the island on their own. Come lie in the tall grasses and experience the true sense of seclusion and peacefulness that Traustholtshólmi has to offer. Less
