Description from manager

Himnaríki (e. Heaven)

The name of the cabin is Himnaríki or Heaven in english.

The heavenly view from the cabin over the Þjórsá river and the volcano Hekla is spectacular!

The amazing view reaches over the beautiful landscape and the location is peaceful with a few other summerhouses around and a small country road that is mostly used by the local farmers.

The floorspace of the cabin is 38 m2 plus a sleeping loft with three 80x200 beds. Downstairs there is one bedroom with a queen size double bed. There is a well equipped kitchen, a living room and a bathroom with a shower. All bedding and towels are included.

Fossnes farm (GPS: N64 04.385 W 020 06 634 is 1.5 km from the cabin. There it is possible to use a hot tub as well as getting information on any hiking trails or buy fishing licences to fish in the river Þverá.

Þjórsárdalur valley is only a 20 minute drive away, there you can enjoy both beautiful nature and rich history.

To name a few locations are the waterfalls Háifoss and Hjálparfoss, and the old ruins of the Viking farm Stöng that was deserted during the Hekla Volcano eruption in the year 1142.

Landmannalaugar Hot springs and Veiðivötn (fishing river) are also within a driving distance from the Sprengisandur road (nr. F26).

The closest village is Árnes, it's about 7 minute drive away.

There is a mini-market and a swimming pool.

Flúðir is a larger village, about 25 minutes away that has a supermarket, golf course, wine store, swimming pool and the Secret Lagoon.
