  • Hi. Do you have hot tubs at your facility? Or are there natural springs nearby?
    Hello, we don't have hot tubs on our facility but there are in the next village - Hauganes - really nice hot tubs on the black sand beach. That's 5' driving or 30' walking along the fjord.

Hello ! The Iglúhús offers you the opportunity to live an original rural stay. By its exceptional location, its unique geodesic shape with glazed sides and roof and the simplicity of its equipment, experience a night "under the stars" or "under the midnight sun" from a cozy bed. The Iglúhús is equipped with a king size bed with eider down duvet, pillows and sheets; a table & two chairs; kettle, toaster, coffee maker; tea, coffee; dishes, cutlery; sink ; water tanks (10L); a little guide book of the region; WiFi connection; toilet in a shed next door. CAUTION: no running water or shower.
My partner Laurent and I decided to try the Icelandic Adventure in summer 2018. We left France to come try out life in this small fishing village, Árskógssandur (litt. "The wooded river leading to the beach ") on the banks of Eyjafjörður. For a whole year we have been busy welcoming travelers in the house we occupied and in the igloo-hut. Conquered by this little piece of paradise and benefiting from this year of experience, we decided to settle ourselves permanently. We have thus taken over the bnb business, renamed L&L Guest-House & Iglúhús to our own account in September 2019. Since then, we have endeavored to maintain a quality of service that meets the expectations of our travelers, in line with our values, concerned about the respect of all - including the planet. We are open and eager to share with the travelers who meet us on their journey and we will do our best to make your stay a reflection of Iceland: magical. We strive to improve the facilities and enrich the stay of our travelers progressively.
