The Klettar Tower boast 4 small self catering apartments with private bathroom, kitchenette and access to the tower room with amazing views over the rural farming landscape and the perfect viewing point for Northern Lights hunts. The tower was renovated by Ásgeir Eiríksson, a carpenter and former farmer, almost entirely with his own hands. Now the old silage tower of his family farm has received a new purpose. He told us that he got the idea from a friend, who is a professional arkitekt, about 5 years ago. Two years went just into the extensive planning process. The building job was slow as everything had to be either specially designed or carefully chosen due to the round shape of the tower. A lot of original features have been maintained and Ásgeir seeks his inspiration from nature and the balance of living with nature. In his younger years he traveled abroad intensively to learn yoga, accupunture and reflexology and is currently offering advice on how to increase your energy by unconventional methods and by putting positive feelings into power.
There are future plans for a yoga center and themed courses in unconventional medicine. In between courses individual travellers can book their accommodation at the tower on a self catering basis and enjoy the beautiful northern lights during winter and the magical midnight sun during the white nights of summer from the tower room. The tower is perfectly situated just about 100 km from Reykjavík and ideal for tours along the South Shore, for daytrips into the highland such as Landmannalaugar Mountain Resort and to discover the natural wonders of the Golden Circle such as Geysir hot spring and waterfall Gullfoss. The geothermal Secret Lagoon is just about a 10 minutes drive away and a local horse rental next door. Beautiful hikes along the glacial river Þjórsá with amazing birdlife can be done right from the farm grounds.
