Fagrahlíð


Fagrahlíð

A small, cosy residence at farm Fagrahlíð in the Fljótshlíð region in the south of Iceland. The farm, located by the foothills of nearby mountains, has wonderful views over the region. Glacier Eyjafjallajökull is clearly visible as well as the coastline and the Westman Islands. The region itself is a beautiful and peaceful place where brooks playfully tumble trough ravines and canyons and where you can relax under the warm sun, nestled by mossy tussocks. Many natural attractions are close by. Open all year.
