Amazing House for Northern Lights and Famous Sights in Southern Iceland
Wonderful, modern, well-stocked house with a very gracious host! Our group of 6 used the house as a home base to explore southern Island and the wonderful sights (Gullfoss waterfall and the Geysir) off the Golden Circle. The Northern Lights were even more beautiful than I imagined and brought tears to my eyes. This trip was one of my top 3 and that's saying something because I travel a lot! Highly recommend Iceland and this home! One note - the home has 2 full baths and 2 half baths. ”
