Holt is a perfect base for your Icelandic holiday. Have a memorable day at Snæfellsjökull National Park, visit a natural hot spring like Deildartunguhver, or amazing waterfall like Hraunfossar. Other interesting places to visit are, the active volcano Grábrók, the crater Eldborg, historical viking landmark Reykholt, and taking a walk into the glacier Langjökull. You can stroll through the nearby cozy town of Borgarnes and drop by the cafe’s, museums, shops and restaurants. Take a drive to the capital Reykjavík with all its glory, nightlife and culture. Make a day trip on the Golden Circle and see the exploding Geysir with all its natural power, and drop by the historic Thingvellir National Park, and view close up the beautiful Gullfoss waterfall. In the evenings you will always come back home to this cozy cottage in Helluskógur and the first thing you might do is, relax in the hot tub and enjoy the views or the Northern Lights in the peace and quietness after a memorable day.

The lodge was built in a traditional, Icelandic summerhouse way. It is well constructed and insulated. It is warm and cozy all year round with all necessities and comfort. The house has an open kitchen-living room area. In the kitchen there is all the tableware and equipment you need for cooking, baking, and serving a lovely meal. The living room has a great corner sofa and a large flat screen TV . The bedrooms are cozy and comfortable with great quality beds. Free WIFI.

The Perfect Getaway!
This was our 10th trip to Iceland, and we've stayed in all sorts of lodging, from guesthouses to hotels to cabins. This time, for my 50th birthday, we wanted something that felt secluded & peaceful, offering us a chance to just 'be' for a while in our favorite country. We had a few requirements: a hot tub, good kitchen and room to stretch out & relax. It also needed to be near the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, so we could make day trips out as desired. This cottage was a slam dunk for us in all respects. Heidi & Robert are very helpful, answering questions before our arrival. The home is just outside of Borgarnes, which offers all the comforts of an Icelandic town: good restaurant options, a large N1, and both a Bonus and Netto for grocery runs. The gravel road leading to the cottage is easy to drive and offers some stunning views of the area. We were able to unpack our bags and settle in easily. The living/kitchen area is quiet large for two people. Windows wrap the corner of the living room, so we had eye-level views at all times, to enjoy the distant mountains during the day, and to see (all) the stars and northern lights at night. The living room has a remarkably comfortable section and a good-sized smart TV with plenty of access to music, movies and videos. The kitchen was easy to use and has plenty of counter space, with lovely black granite counters. Every room has a source of heat, including the bathroom. We were never cold. The upstairs sleeping loft is a fun chance of pace, even for adults. The bathroom has excellent counter space, a window and fan for venting, and a high-quality shower with handheld sprayer and fantastic water pressure. There's also a towel heater. The hot tub was exactly what we needed. It's large, very clean and easy to access. Sitting in a 40ºC tub with no sound at night is bliss. The deep wraparound porch allowed us to sit outside during light rain and take in the air. This experience was a 10/10 for us, and we would absolutely come back, or look into their other properties in the area. If you crave the 'summer cottage' experience in Iceland, this is about as picture-perfect as you can get!

Great summerhouse!
Awesome experience. This summerhouse is really cozy with a great hot-tub and patio - south/west facing so you can enjoy the long summer nights, super comfy beds and all brand new appliances. Heiðrún was very responsive and accommodating. Highly recommend! Eli (Israel) & Sara (Iceland)
