Countryside bedroom in the hillside of Reykjavik

The house.
1 of 16The house.
Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Reykjavik, Capital Region
The eight square meters bedroom has one queen size bed and is suitable for two persons. The whole house can comfortable accommodate 8-10 persons and has one shared bathroom and very big kitchen and dining room with access to all the facility. We do not rent the whole house out as we need to have access to the kitchen every day.
Akurholt is 106 m2 and located only 14 km away from the center of Reykjavik. It is situated in a beautiful hillside and has the atmosphere of a cozy farm. We have lived here for many years but recently moved to a close by neighborhood.
At the same place we operate horse rental so if you are interested in horse riding please check our website Icelandic riding or Reiðtúr.

About the neighbourhood
The surrounding area is very beautiful, in our backyard we have a small mountain called Úlfarsfell (297m). The view from Akurholt is spectacular and even better from the top of Úlfarsfell. Close by is also a lake called Hafravatn, the area is perfect for outdoors activities in a unspoiled nature but still very close to the center of Reykjavík.

Our location gives one of the best possibilities to see northern lights in Reykjavik area.

How to get there
Airport: Flugstöð Leifs Eiríkssonar: 54.0 km
The drive from Keflavík airport to my place is about 58 km. The Flybus departs from Keflavík Airport 35-40 minutes after each flight arrival.

The buses are located right outside the terminal building. Its destination is BSI, the main bus station in Iceland. If you take bus rather then taxi, from BSI you can catch up with bus nr. 6 which will take you to Ártúnsholt. There you switch buses and take bus nr. 18 or 26, which transport you to Skyggnisbraut and from there it is about 1100 mtr. on a gravel trail to our house.

If you write Úlfarsfellsvegur 33 into Google map you will get my location.
The street name Úlfarsfellsvegur does not have a sign but my house has a sign Akurholt.
