Hafnarfjordur Iceland

Hello intervac friends!

We have already made arrangements for the summer of 2016.

We live in Iceland, in the small town Hafnarfjördur which is part of the capital region. It´s 30 min from the international airport (Keflavík), and 15 min from Reykjavik city center and many of the most popular tourist attractions can be seen in a day-trip from here. 

The house is three story high; four small bedrooms and a landing on the top floor, WC, kitchen, dining room and sitting room on the mid floor, a larger bedroom, TV room and a bathroom downstairs.

The house is old and charming in the center of town. A small garden is behind the house for coffee breaks or sun-bathing. (Yes! It sometimes gets quite hot in the summer!)  
We have a cat. She is hospitable and calm, and walks in and out as she pleases. If you want to do trips for more than three days we can arrange caring for her in the meantime.
Shops are nearby and bus services are good. 
Hafnarfjordur is a pretty little old fishingtown and an old merchantplace. In June there is a viking festival here.

We have a 7-seated Pajero Mitsubishi if we decide to exchange cars.
