Iceland is undoubtedly one of the most breathtaking destinations in Northern Europe, dazzling an endless stream of visitors all year round. Within the unspoiled nature in the mountains of West Iceland lies this Airbnb cottage offering a view that stretches out to the ocean and valleys.

A Piece of Heaven

Situated in Kolsstaðir, the area is ideal for hiking along hundred-year-old sheep trails, meditating, and artistic activities. One may even catch a glimpse of wild horses and arctic foxes occasionally. Perhaps most alluring, the cottage provides a vantage point from which the Northern lights may be observed.

Designed in the old Icelandic country style, the ‘Piece of Heaven’ offers just 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom, but its modern interior accommodates up to 4 guests comfortably.

One may find a cosy attic bedroom with a double bed and a living space with endless views of the countryside.

If driving over to the village of Budardalur, just 15 minutes away, is too much of a hassle, guests may opt for a relaxing night in and fix up simple homely meals in the fully equipped kitchen. Complete with a wood-burning stove, the remote home is the perfect sanctuary for those seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Step outside to behold a grassy and mountainous terrain stretching out to the horizon. When night falls, the star-lit sky also presents an opportunity to witness the ever so elusive aurora beams.

This Northern paradise is the place to be all year round for those seeking respite from city life. Keep in mind that the Northern light season begins early September to the end of April. If you’re chasing the aurora spectacle, be sure to refer to the Icelandic Met Office Website for daily aurora forecasts.
