Alftanes, Iceland

*Edited: House is available from December 2, 2018- January 10, 2019. We prefer a minimum 2-week stay.

Experience the magic of the Icelandic Christmas traditions and bring in the New Year’s with a neighborhood bonfire by the ocean and unforgettable fireworks displays across the city. Icelanders bring the hygge into Christmas with twinkling lights everywhere and candles in every home and cafe. This is our darkest time of the year and also the best chances of viewing the northern lights. Our home is located 20 minutes from downtown Reykjavik and away from the light pollution of the city. The home has 4 bedrooms, including a king size bed, a queen bed, one bedroom with a twin size bed and another bedroom with a loft twin size and toddler size bed. Alftanes is a quiet neighborhood with a sweet little cafe (amazing pizza) and one of the top rated swimming pools (with sauna and steam baths) in the area. Imagine sitting in your living room with hot tea in hand watching the northern lights out the window. Or sledding down the hill at the end of our cul de sac while the northern lights dance above your heads. Perhaps walking down that same hill to visit the friendly Icelandic horses in the fields. We are located within walking distance to the ocean and have views of the ocean and Bessastadir, where the President of Iceland lives with his family.
We will be visiting family abroad this year but wish to share this beautiful time of the year with another worldschooling family. We are passionate about sharing Iceland and its traditions with others and we would set you up very well with information on the festivities and Christmas traditions happening in the area during this time. We also have many extra winter coats and clothes for children, sleds, ice skates and cross country skiis you may use. With almost 6 weeks to explore and experience, you will really get the opportunity to know Iceland, you will certainly see the northern lights, and you will know all kinds of weather, from still pink sunrises to stormy nights with candles and a book. You will never forget this Christmas you spent in Iceland. I hope you come, it will be amazing.

We would like to rent our home for the entire time period December 2- January 10th, but are open to shorter stays.
