Company information

Skyrhúsið Guesthouse is a family-owned and operated guesthouse on Iceland´s spectacular south coast. The house was built in the traditional style with three pointed gables. So it looks very similar to the old family home which is right next door. Where our guesthouse is today is where the family´s skyr kitchen was in the old days. Skyr is the traditional Icelandic yogurt. Hence the name Skyrhúsið (Skyrhouse/house of Skyr) and the complimentary skyr that is waiting for you in the guesthouse.

Property information

Skyrhúsið Guesthouse is a small hostel style guesthouse with a homey/homely and easy going atmosphere who offers all the comfort a traveler will need in a clean, tidy and cozy environment. Skyrhúsið features eleven rooms which all have a small wash basin in rooms and shared bathroom facilities. Bed linen and towels are included. We have a small shared kitchen, which is only for the most simple cooking, heating and boiling only. It consists with two sets of two burner stoves, a microwave and most basic kitchen equipment. No oven and no frying pan. In the cozy dining area you can enjoy our complimentary hot and cold beverages and mingle with your fellow travelers.

Neighbourhood information

We are located only a ten minute drive from the world-famous glacier lagoon Jökulsarlón and the Diamond Beach. From here you can easily explore both these natural wonders. You can also go and visit the ice caves or go for a glacier walk on Vatnajökull, Europe´s largest glacier. There are great hiking trails in the area as well, especially in Skaftafell National Park, which is about a 50 minute drive west from here. There are two restaurants in walking distance that serve breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as Thorbergssetur - Historical museum.
