Iceland is a gorgeous country that has recently become famous for its breathtaking natural environment. While it can be fun to stay in the heart of downtown Reykjavik for short-time, the real Icelandic experience comes from getting out of the city and losing yourself in the natural world that has given Iceland its name. This private rental cabin near Iceland’s Golden Circle is the ideal accommodation for anyone looking to escape the city and experience the authentic Iceland lifestyle.
Enjoy a modern cabin in a rustic world
Once you get out of Reykjavik, Iceland can look a little rough around the edges. Every bundle of homes is separated by miles of open land and you are more likely to see ponies and sheep than other people. Even so, this private rental cabin near Selfoss has all the amenities you could ask for. Their kitchen is fully equipped, their bedrooms are incredibly comfortable, and they even have a toasty outdoor hot tub with a great view of the stars. While the cabin itself does not have Wi-Fi, you are only a 15 minute drive from Selfoss, where you can find Wi-Fi and a delicious meal at Kaffi Krús.
The perfect place for the whole gang
Whether you are traveling as a family or a group of friends, this cabin can accommodate you. There are two private bedrooms downstairs, each with a bed for two, and upstairs features a loft with another bed and tons of couch space. All in all this cabin can hold up to eight guests. Plus the massive deck with a grill, outdoor dining table, and hot tub offers the ideal place for some family fun in the evening. For 203 USD (23,243 ISK) a night, it’s a great deal and well worth it, because it’s not every day you get a view like this from your bedroom window.
Use this as your home base while exploring the golden circle
There are two famous tourist routes in Iceland: the Golden Circle and Ring Road. The Golden Circle is a route in the south of Iceland that can easily be done in a day and is one of the most breathtaking travel experiences around. From waterfalls to geysers, the Golden Circle is full of stunning natural creations and well worth your time. The best part? This private cabin is located just off the main junction where the Golden Circle begins.
Prepare to fall in love with this private rental cabin
Whether you stay for a week or a night, you are not going to want to leave once you’ve set foot in this private rental cabin. It really is an incredible cabin in an ideal location. Whatever you do, make sure you visit the Golden Circle while you are there and if you can, plan a trip down to Vik, a small beach town just short of two hours from the cabin. One of the best things about this cabin is that is very centrally located, but while you are at the cabin, you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere and can see the Icelandic landscape stretching for miles in every direction.
