Free local buses
The school bus is free and available for all if space allows many times a day. It stops just a few meters away at the bus shelters. You can use it to get to Hellisandur and Olafsvik. Where you can shop groceries, go swimming (Olafsvik), go to Restaurants and Cafes (note that not all of them are open in Winter)
Exclusive Walk and Bicycle paths to neighboring towns
Very unusual for towns and villages in the middle of the countryside Rif has a dedicated bicycle and walking paths to the nearby towns of Hellisandur and Olafsvik. To find the path go towards the end of our street in the direction of the main road. It is great to be able to walk (or cycle) to the neighboring towns without having to be right on the main road. You can go of the path and visit waterfalls, the sea etc. In the towns you can shop for groceries, go swimming (in Olafsvik), go to restaurants and cafes (note not all are open in winter) Or enjoy the midnight sun / northern lights
Landing strip for a Private plane
There is an official landing strip within walking distance. So if you have a private plane or you hire a plane it is one more choice of how to get to the Washitsu.Casa if you have the resources
Bus services from Reykjavik or other places
You can use the Icelandic bus system to get to our street in Rif. The bus system called straeto.is was originally the Reykjavik City bus system that was extended into the country. You need to change the bus twice but do not worry the buses wait for each other.
Our Car especially for long term volunteers
If you are staying for many months e.g. as a volunteer we might be able to arrange for you to use our car.
Superb free parking also for large vehicles
There is plenty of free parking on both side of the street. You can park your car, SUV, Caravan, Mini-bus, Bus or Long Vehicle for free.
Driving through a bird sanctuary
In summer from May to August. There are a lot of birds on the local road. Just drive carefully and enjoy this unique experience.
It is a nice way to get around and to get to know new people. Depending on the distance you would like to cover you might want to start early so that you are not traveling to late when less cars are around
