Around us

South of Iceland is beautiful, full of fun activities and good food. We are incredibly lucky to be placed in such a vibrant, living area.


Here are some of our recommendations:


Syðra Langholt horse rental, professional and all around great people. They take you around on riding tours right in our area.

The Secret Lagoon in Flúðir. A beautiful, recently restored nature lagoon / swimming pool in a hot spring area. An absolute must visit.

Secret Local Adventures. A family run company with local guides and Super- jeep highland tours. We have travelled with them and recommend it whole heartedly.


Friðheimar, greenhouse and restaurant where they serves amazing tomato soup inside their greenhouses.

Efsti Dalur II, a restaurant, hotel and ice cream makers. They serve locally sourced food and while you eat your ice cream in the ice cream barn you can watch their cows through a window.

Meat straight from the farmer at “Kjötvinnslan Langholtskoti“.

Organic vegetable market at Engi in Laugarás – they are open in weekends during the summer.

Our local farmers market in Efsta Sel. They are also a Golf Course and Pizzeria.

Cafe Mika, a restaurant, pizzeria and gourmet chocolate producers.

Minilik, our local Ethiopian restaurant. They have a Ethiopian coffee ceremony and delicious food.


A hike up on Miðfell for beautiful views. 2.5-3 hours, fairly easy walk and a marked path.

We are located quite close to the Golden Circle and its main stars – Gullfoss and Geysir.
