Il quartiere

Fishing
Ölfusá is popular for sea-trout fishing. Angling for sea trout is permitted in the period between 1 April and 30 September. Two fishing rods are available upon request for guests staying in Móakot and angling is possible anytime during the fishing period.

Birdlife
The owners of the farm have established a private bird conservation area. Birdlife is rich from April, when you witness the arrival of the first migrant birds, until autumn especially during May, June and July. Eider-duck colony of approximately 800 nests is located on a small island in the Ölfusá river estuary. In May and June we collect eiderdown. Ornithologists have for years conducted studies on the estate´s birdlife and in the cottage there is a review of the areas bird life by José A. Alves.  José is a Senior Research Associate at the University of East Anglia developing research in Icelandic waders since 2006 in collaboration with the University of Iceland. His work focuses mostly on the population dynamics of migratory birds and the ability of these species in dealing with ever accelerating environmental change.  In Iceland, the Black-tailed Godwit is the species to which more attention has been dedicated but recent studies with Whimbrels and Oystercatchers are underway. The Flói Bird Reserve is adjacent to the farm.

A walk along the riverbank is an excellent way to enjoy the bird-life.

History
Existing records of Kaldadarnes date from 1200 AD. Before Ölfusá river was bridged the farm serviced the ferry across Ölfusá. The origin of the name “Kaldadarnes” is “Kalladarnes” or the place where you called the ferry. During the middle ages Kaldadarnes was a place of pilgrimage and a wooden cross at the church was believed to have healing powers. During Catholicism in Iceland this was the holiest place in Iceland along with the shrine of Þorlákur. During the Lutheran reform the cross was destroyed and the story says that the bishop responsible died shortly afterwards. During World War II, the British forces built a large military camp and hospital at Kaldaðarnes as well as an airfield which was called RAF Station Kaldadarnes. Only few ruins of the camp exist to day.

Geology
Kaldadarnes is situated on the great Þjórsá lava plain, which was formed around 8,700 years ago. The lava originated from an eruption far inland in the Veiðivötn area and it was the largest post-Ice Age lava flow on earth. The area lies low, only some few meters above sea level. In clear weather there is excellent view of the surrounding mountains and in distance you can e.g. see Mount Hekla and Eyjafjallajökul

Gudrun's cottage was a perfect home for our Iceland Honeymoon. With easy access to Skogafoss, Vik, the Golden Circle, and Reykjavik we were set for a week of extraordinary day trips. We even made it up to Snæfellsnes Peninsula which was well worth the 3 hour drive!! We found Iceland to be more expensive than we were expecting, so to have a well equipped kitchen was essential (the local markets are very affordable!) - we loved making breakfast every morning and cozying in some nights. It truly felt like our little home. Gudrun was extremely helpful as well - we had one little issue with the shower leaking and she had it fixed within 10 minutes of telling her! We really appreciated all of the treats she left us too - a bottle of wine and a basket of goodies from her garden along with other cooking essentials! She also shared her fishing gear! The bed was very comfortable, views were stunning, and was overall very clean. This place is a gem. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great trip to Southern Iceland!
