Why Valtyr Valtysson chose Rangárþing ytra
The property was passed down through the generations. The oldest part of the house was built 1912 by my grand father. The rest of the house was built 1950 by my father and his siblings.

Fabulous Farm Stay
We had a fantastic time at the Farmer's Guest House! The location is central and close to the main highway along the south coast of Iceland. There was a grocery store 8km away and we were able to cook all of our meals. Everything is expensive in Iceland so were able to save some money on eating out. The kitchen was very well equipped. The beds were very comfortable and lots of hot water for showers. We also appreciated the washing machine.
The northern lights were amazing! A few tips, you have to get outside to see them. Bundle up and take a walkabout around the house every 15 minutes on clear nights. We saw northern lights covering the entire sky from midnight until 3am. We were lucky and for 3 nights of our week long stay the skies were clear.
Our host Valtyr was a wealth of information offering tips on the best sights to see and where to go.
We were two couples and found the house to be very roomy and comfortable. If you are looking for a dark place to spot northern lights this farmhouse is the perfect location.
