Backyard Village

Situated 40km south of Reykjavik on the Golden Circle, Backyard Village is ideally located for attractions such as The South Coast, Golden Circle, Laugarvatn Spa and Secret Lagoon.

We have two charming wooden cabins that sleep up to five and are surrounded by a semi-wild garden. Both houses have a bedroom with a double bed (plus a bunk bed), a bathroom with a shower and a living area combined with a fully equipped kitchen. The living area has a pullout sofa bed, and there is free Wi-Fi and a Smart TV. The floors are heated (geothermally, of course).

Outside, there is a trampoline, a wood-fired sauna and a hot tub.

There are horse rentals close by and the Reykjadalur hot river hike is almost at the front door. From the cabins you can quite easily walk to the famous natural baths and back in one day.

If you want to relax, do some hiking, go on interesting day trips, cook your own meal, fire up the sauna, and get to know a bit of the life in a small Icelandic town – this should be the ideal place.

  • Additional information

We are Marteinn Thorsson (tenderlee.com) a filmmaker, and Gudrún Eva Minervudottir (minervudottir.com) a novelist. We have a young daughter, Minerva, and a cat, Gudbrandur.

Being artists can be an economically tricky affair. And since we have a nice big backyard we decided to turn a part of it into a residence, for a bit of an extra income.

We want to create an intimate and inspiring place of rest. So we encourage you to stay for more than one night. The best way to experience our beautiful country is to take it slow and notice the little things: The smells in the air, the ever-changing light, the shapes of geothermal steam rising from the ground, the rain or snow on the window, the sound of the wind, the absence of stress.

So if you want to relax, do some hiking, go on interesting day trips, cook your own meal, fire up the sauna, and get to know a bit of the life in a small Icelandic town – this place is ideal.
