Esjan takes its name from the majestic mountain that rises above the farm. She is the queen of mountains in this region of Iceland, situated across the bay from the capital Reykjavik and offers the perfect setting for our center, in the making. Recycling and working with nature were your hosts's focus and central motivating factor and the Bus accommodation has grown out of that passion.

On entering the bus and during your stay your hosts offer a feeling of true adventure, you are going on an intimate journey of discovery. Whilst comfortably accommodated and fully self sufficient, with a little kitchenette, you are first and foremost in the arms of nature. Iceland is for the most part still wilderness and this you will immediately feel on arrival. Your neighbors will be the horses and sheep on surrounding fields as well as the residing 4 cats and a dog. A Bath House is located beside your Bus with showers and toilets. Within this southern region of the island you can make day trips to Þingvellir one of the National Parks, the famed Geyser, the Blue Lagoon as well as Lava Fields and Hot Springs to mention but a few.
