Guesthouse in the southeast of Iceland, close to varied interesting attractions. The farm is located in splendid and beautiful surroundings, 5 km (3 mi) from the Ring Road, and a short distance from the regions of main attractions. The lava field produced during the massive eruption Skaftareldar of 1783 are a prominent trait of the lowlands, whereas moors and highlands are a smorgasbord of Icelandic nature, shaped by ice and fire. We are open all year. Interesting sights to visit from Dalshöfði are Skaftafell, Vatnajokull national park 72 km Jokulsarlon 106 km Lomagnupur 10 km Fjarðaragljufur 32 km Lakagi­gar 82 km Nearest restaurant is only 9 minutes away Nearest supermarket is 20 minutes away
