Welcome to this beautiful, peaceful place on the countryside of Iceland only 20 minute from the city center. Heiðtjörn is located in between two main mountains in Reykjavík Esjan and Bláfjöll. These mountains are popular amongst travellers who wants to hike or ski and see the best landscape of Reykjavík. In this calm relaxing place you can experience bright summer nights with lovely birds song to clear northern light in the winter time. Heiðtjörn is near Suðurlandsvegur (road) which leads to the golden circle, glaciers and volcanoes on the south side of Iceland. The golden cirkle is about two hours away and from there you can see most of the Icelandic pearls in the south side of the country. Heiðtjörn is also near the national park or about 30 minutes by driving the from Nesjavallavegur (road) which is kind of famous for its view. Many cyclers take a cycling tour this road as Ben Stiller did in the Secret Live of Walt Mitty.

We arrived at the house to find it spotlessly clean and warm. Lara was kind enough to come and collect us as we had managed to get ourselves lost.
House has everything you could ask for and more......peaceful, stunning views, hot tub, wifi, very comfortable beds and well equipped kitchen. Cant wait to go back.

This is a lovely place to stay, we visited in winter and while the road is difficult to access without a 4x4, the house itself was kept cosy with underfloor heating and warm comfy beds. The owners were very friendly and assisted promptly with all our questions. The scenery is lovely the balcony on the top floor provides a stunning view. There were a few minor issues including the cooker not working but that did not prevent us enjoying the stay.
