Host Info

Host Review Score

A family operated guesthouse located at a farm in the South of Iceland. We redid the cowshed as a guesthouse and have 4 rooms available for guests. All rooms have a private bathroom. The famous volcano Hekla is close by as well as one of the biggest salmon fishing rivers in Iceland. We are only an hour and a half by car from Reykjavík (about 120km). If you want to experience true rural Iceland away from the crowds you´ve come to the right place. We are close to everything but far enough to be a calm oasis where you can just chill and be around beautiful nature, meet our animals and make yourself at home. If you´re travelling with a child we can provide a crib. The common area is spacious and bright and includes a dining hall and kitchen. You´ll have access to a fully equipped kitchen including fridge & freezer. Please note that we are located on a farm, 18km from the nearest town Hella. Please also note that the last 4km of the road to our house is gravel. Accessible by any car, just be extra careful driving.
We are farmers who opened our little guesthouse in 2017. We have sheep, horses and a few chickens and we love to grow vegetables and herbs in the summer. We have enjoyed welcoming thousands of guests from all over the world and can´t wait to meet more.
We are ideally located to explore some of the souths main attractions e.g. 30 mins from Seljalandsfoss, 40 mins from Skógafoss, 1 hr from the Black beach in Vík, 1hr 30 mins from the golden circle, 1hr 30 mins from Reykjavík.
