Eirð is an exclusive water front retreat on Iceland's south coast. This vacation rental is uniquely located on a peninsula by lake Gislholtsvatn and provides extra privacy with connection to nature and an opportunity to practice mindfulness.
Eirð consists of one main building, the large building and three spacious guest houses, mixing together an old scandinavian lodge style with modern scandinavian architecture. The original building features three bedrooms, a large kitchen, a library with a wood burning stove, a dining room with a direct south facing lake view, a living room off the dining area with a fireplace and two bathrooms with a shower.
The new large building features 4 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom with a shower. It also features a large room for yoga sessions or seminars. This large room is rented out separately.
Each of our 3 guest houses has two single beds (can be turned into one double), a bathroom with a shower, and a kitchenette with a refrigerator and small freezer. A Nespresso coffee maker and speakers are found in each of our guesthouses.
In total Eirð currently has 10 bedrooms and is therefore well suited for up to 20 people. Extra beds can be arranged for another 3 people, but 20 really is the maximum number of guests we currently accept.
Eirð itself offers kayak (to use directly on Gislholtsvatn lake) and mountain bike (for bike tours in the immediate vicinity) special request.
Within 30-70 minutes from Eirð you will then find major tourist attractions such as: Geysir, Gullfoss, Mount Hekla, the infamous Eyjafjallajökull volcano (modern visitor center at Hvolsvöllur), river rafting on the river Hvítá, horse back riding, Kerið crater and Þórsmörk highlands.
