Description from manager

About the cottage

The cottage has 2 bedrooms for two persons each (one with double bed and one with 2 single beds). There is also the possibility to add mattress for 1 child under 12. Keys are picked up at the guesthouse (the white one with the blue door (photo)). Close to the guesthouse is a small pond with a rowing boat which guests in the cottage can use as well.

Hagi was mentioned in the old Icelandic Sagas (Ljósvetningasaga) and is on the east side of Laxá, a famous salmon fishing river. On the east of Hagi is a small pond. Both the river Laxá and the several small streams to the north and east of Hagi are rich in bird life which makes it a perfect location for bird watchers.

What to do

When staying at Hagi, you are close too some of the most natural wonders Iceland has to offer. A mere 30 minutes away there is Lake Myvatn, a popular tourist destination for years. Rich in bird life and no shortages of sights. A little further east you can go visit the Myvatn Nature Baths. Opened on the 30th of June 2004, Myvatn Naturebaths offers something for everyone. Despite its northerly location, the region enjoys a temperate climate, and the long summer days when darkness never comes can be surprisingly warm. As summer merges into autumn, the landscape becomes a panoramic patchwork dotted with shades of gold and brown, while winter brings its own tapestry of snow, sparkling frosts, and frequent opportunities to enjoy the unforgettable splendour of the Northern Lights.

A designated nature reserve, Myvatn is an area of fragile beauty where tourist services have been developed in such a way as to cause as little disruption as possible to what is a unique and highly delicate ecosystem.

Drawing on a centuries-old tradition, the tastefully designed complex offers bathers a completely natural experience that begins with a relaxing dip amidst clouds of steam rising up from a fissure deep in the Earth´s surface, and ends with a luxurious swim in a pool of geothermal water drawn from depths of up to 2.500 metres.

And that's not all. Krafla is a geothermal powerhouse where you can go and see hot steam coming from pores in the earth. Dettifoss is one of Icelands most impressive waterfalls, reputed to be Icelands most powerful and has been used as a background in major films such as Ridley Scott's Prometheus. Asbyrgi is another major sight close to Husavik. appropriately called Sleipnir's horse shoe, it is a clear reminder of the powers of mother nature.
