Overview
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 8
Akranes, West Region
Large cottage located on a farm, Kalastadir in Hvalfjjordur. Kalastaðir is only 55 km from Reykjavík in a beautiful landscape. The location is ideal for day trip sightseing tours to tourist attractions in the South and West part of Iceland e.g. Blue Lagoon, Reykjavík, Gullfoss, Geysir, Thingvellir, Snæfellsnes and Borgarfjordur. The cottage is close to the sea and the view is breathtaking. If you want to take a brake from driving and enjoy what the area has to offer, you can enjoy a stroll by the sea and watch the seals play along the shore. The local swimmingpool is also close by and the local golf course. There are many hiking routes in the area and there is a lake close by where you can buy fishing permit. You can buy groceries and other things you might need in Akranes which is only about 15 km from Kalastaðir.

The cottage is for 6-8...

How to get there
Airport: Keflavik airport : 100.0 km
The address is Kalastadi, 301 Akranes.

You drive from the airport towards Reykjavík. When you have reached Reykjavík, you should see signs on you right directing you to Mosfellsbær. You make a turn there and drive through Mosfellsbær. You could shop groceries there. There are two shops, Krónan with a yellow logo (you see it from the road) and Bónus with a pink pig in it´s logo. From Mosfellsbær you drive towards Borgarnes on road no. 1. You go through the tunnel under Hvalfjörður and take the first exit out of the roundabout. You will shortly drive past a factory site on your right and then up a small hill. The second road on you right on that hill is road no. 47, Hvalfjarðarvegur. You turn there and now it´s only few km to the cottages. You will see a sign with the name of the farm, Kala...
