We are located only 14 km from the city center but still far enough that you will consider your self to be at the country side. In our backyard there is a mountain Úlfarsfell that is very popular for hiking. From the top, you can enjoy a amazing view of the city, close by mountains. On a clear day, you can even see all the way to the Snæfellsnes peninsula. This area is an excellent place to watch the northern lights during the winter time.
A little bit further up the valley is a beautiful lake called Hafravatn where you can catch up for a fish, if you are lucky enough.
