Notre maison

We have already made an exchange for the summer of 2015.

An excellent choice for families, big and small, looking to explore Iceland and Reykjavik. The house is centrally located in a popular and family-friendly neighborhood in Reykjavik, close to the main bike-paths and about 5 km from the city centre. A very nice valley is within a walking distance, the nearest swimming pool is 2 km away and a good- value supermarket is 1 km away. We are a couple with three kids (2-9 years) and all the stuff that comes with a brood like that.

Our house (180 sq.m, row-house) is in the neighborhood of Fossvogur. It is at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and there is little need to worry about traffic. The house has a small terrace and a lawn. Just outside the garden there is a small football field and a designated play-area. The house sits in a gentle slope and faces due south, sheltered from the northerly winds, and so the terrace tends to be very hot (by Icelandic standards). On the balcony there is a BBQ. The kitchen is fully equipped (incl. washing-machine.)

The house has a master bedroom (king size bed), three bedrooms for children (one with a 90x200 cm bed, the other two with a 70x140cm bed). In the hobby-room there is enough space for two full size mattresses. Television, dvd and a Wi-fi, are all in place. (We can provide at least two comfortable mattresses.)
We have two adult bikes, three kids bikes, a bike-trailer for one kid, up to 35 kg, and a kids bike seat.

  1. We are a married couple, Vilborg and Runar, with three kids (2-9 years of age). We are both professionals (specialist at a bank, web-editor) and we like to travel with our kids. We have done a house exchange twice before, in Sweden and in France, and in both cases we had a very good experience.

    We are looking for a car exchange. The car is a 2006 model VW Sharan which seats 7 people. The house has a private parking place.

    We can lend, or rather exchange, our camping-equipment; a spacious family tent and all the gear required.

    We would consider an exchange for 2-4 weeks.





The location is excellent for people who like to enjoy Reykjavik by bike. The valley of Fossvogsdalur is a very popular venue for bicycling, running and walking and the proximity to the Elliðarárdalur-valley, a wooded, largely unspoilt valley with a salmon river in the middle, makes it a very appealing choice for anyone who likes the outdoors. From the house it takes about 10-15 minutes to bike to Laugardalur, the largest green area in the city proper, where you'll find, among other attractions, Reykjavik's biggest swimming-pool and the small but appealing Reykjavik Zoo and family park. (The animals in the Zoo are sheep, horses, seals etc.)

A small shopping-center with a bakery, a very nice pizzeria, mini-market and more is about 4-500 meters away.
Several golf courses are within a 20-minutes driving distance, i.e. and
