Andra saker att notera
Both our cabins are 36 sqm, with a bedroom, bathroom and a living area combined with a kitchen. The facilities include private parking. The kitchen has a dining table, stovetop, oven, refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee machine, electric kettle, children’s high chair (stored in the laundry house), wine glasses, kitchenware and cleaning products. The living area has a pullout sofa bed. Both cabins have a private entrance doorway as well as a door that opens into our backyard. There are windows on every side—as well as a skylight in the living area.

There’s free high-speed WI-FI as well as a very "smart" TV (Netflix, YouTube, smartphone/tablet mirroring).

A WOOD FIRED SAUNA is on the premises. The sauna is a good place to unwind and warm up the body and tired muscles (after a long hike, for instance). It takes about 40 minutes to an hour to warm up the sauna. Wood, matches and "firestarters" are in the laundry house. Take your time and enjoy. Please note that people with high blood pressure, respiratory problems and/or a heart condition should not use the sauna. Use caution when lighting the sauna and keep the lid closed after you light it. Under no circumstances should children light the sauna and they should always be accompanied by adults. We can help with the sauna procedures if we're around.

A HOT TUB is also provided for. It’s another great way to unwind and reflect and perfect for those who can’t tolerate the heat of the sauna. People with high blood pressure, respiratory problems and/or a heart condition should show caution in the hot tub. Children should always be accompanied by adults. Before using the hot tub, please shower (either using the outdoor shower or the one in your cabin), especially after using the sauna.

There’s also the OUTDOOR SHOWER (affixed to the Laundry Cabin). It’s invigorating to take an ice-cold shower between sauna sessions.

Please note that the sauna/hot tub/outdoor shower area can be slippery in winter (ice) and sometimes when it rains heavily. Please show caution. Also note that food, alcohol or other drugs are not permitted in the hot tub or sauna and the use of glassware is strictly forbidden (so many rules, we know, but if we don't have them we'll piss off the health inspector).

THE LAUNDRY CABIN has a washer and a dryer. There’s also storage for outdoor clothes as well as extra linens, towels, soaps, etc. A chair and a small table is by our favourite window, where you can fold laundry, do some writing or just look and reflect or meditate while you wait for the dryer to finish or someone comes knocking.

We also have a TRAMPOLINE (a favourite of Minerva and her friends).

Hveragerði, Island

Hveragerði is the hot springs capital of the world.
Our river, Varmá, is one of the best trout fishing rivers in the country. During summer trouts can often be seen jumping up the magnificent waterfall in their way upstream. A vast number of people pass through or by Hveragerði in south Iceland each year. Located 45 km from Reykjavik, Hveragerði may be seen from the vantage point of the Kambar mountain slope, as it spreads out across a 5,000 year-old lava field. Throughout the year, pillars of steam from the numerous hot springs in the town may be seen rising up out of the ground. In summer the town is truly a green community, abounding in trees. A green revolution is taking place as areas of woodland in and around Hveragerði expand, with the locals working together in order to further develop their blossoming town.

Geothermal park
Children really enjoy cooking eggs in the hots springs at the Geothermal park. Without doubt, Hveragerði´s, most precious gem is it´s geothermal park. There can not be many towns in the world with hot springs literally in peoples back yard. The geothermal park is centrally located and is open every day in the summer time. A natural clay foot bath can be enjoyed in the park and afterwards you can soak your feet in one of the hot springs. In a hole in the park the locals bake the famous black bread using the geothermal ground as an oven. You can boil egg in the hot-springs and later enjoy warm with the bread. Guidance is provided on the spot. During off season time please contact the local information office which arranges group tours upon request. Only 50 metres from the Geothermal Park a restaurant uses the geothermal heat for its outdoor kitchen which its visitors find simply fantastic.

The existence of hot springs led people to settle in Hveragerði. The natural hot water could be used for space heating, for cooking, baking and laundry. But it also led to the development of jobs. The first market garden, Fagrihvammur, was founded by the Varmá river in 1929. A year later the first greenhouse was built, marking the beginning of greenhouse horticulture in this region. Horticulture became a key sector of the local economy. Hveragerði began to grow a community in bloom.

Brand new hot springs on the 29th of May 2008
A new hot spring area broke through the ground in the earthquake that shook Iceland´s southern part on the 29th of May 2008. It is situated in the hillside above the town. Several very active hot springs can be seen that throw colourful mud and clear water in the air. A spectacular sight that should not be missed. All information is given in the tourist information office.

The exhibition "Quake 2008"
The Quake 2008 exhibition is a must see. A powerful earthquake (6,3 Richter scale) struck the South coast of Iceland at 15:45 on the 29th of May in 2008. The epicenter of the quake was about two kilometers southeast of Hveragerði. The area closest to the epicenter of the quake suffered severe damage of houses and contents as this was being thrown around in the earthquake.

The exhibition presents the causes and derivatives the earthquake 2008 in Hveragerði.

Filmmaker, husband and father.
Under din vistelse
We are Marteinn Thorsson, a filmmaker, and Gudrún Eva Minervudottir, a novelist. We have a six year old daughter; Minerva, and a cat; Gudbrandur.

Being artists can be an economically tricky affair at best and since we have a nice big backyard, we decided to turn a part of it into a residence, so we could have a bit of an extra income—thus enabling us to work on our art at the same time.

We want to create an intimate and an inspiring place of rest, where people can take their time, and in effect—be our neighbours for a day or two, or three…

We want to encourage you to stay for more than one night and take it easy. We want to think of our backyard as a place of rest and reflection.

It can be tempting to rush through the many beautiful sights Iceland has to offer but we believe the best way to experience our beautiful country is to take a bit of time to just “be” and notice the little things: The smells in the air, the ever-changing light, the continually changing shapes of geothermal steam rising from the ground, the rain or snow on the window, the sound of the wind, the absence of stress.

So. If you want to rush through, then our place might not be for you!

But if you want to rest, relax, do some hiking, cook your own meal, fire up the sauna, meditate, make art and get to know a bit of the life in a small Icelandic town—maybe we can be neighbours.

We’ll be happy to be yours!
