Small family run country hotel, we offer 8 18-21 sq.M rooms with private bathrooms, mountain views and free breakfast. Situated in the peace and quiet of the Icelandic country site, perfect location for seeing northern lights when they are in season. Centrally located for all the main attractions in the south of Iceland for ex. Golden circle, Seljalandsfoss, Skogarfoss, Dyrholaey, THorsmork, Landmannalaugar and many more but still only 14 km away from the next town.

The hotel is located absolutelly beautifully! It’s about 10 km from the main road but please take a ride over here. No sound nor light pollution makes it great for watching the northern lights and/or the stars. Friendly staff and a tasty breakfast. A great place for tranquillity.

It has just changed hands so I cannot comment on the previous owners, it cannot have been better run though, well worth staying here, it is close to many of the southern attractions and it is so peaceful, if the aurora is happening I cannot think of a better place to watch it

Another question: Do you offer short horse rides? Larry Iversen
Hi Larry Iversen and thank you for your question. We do not offer horse rides but there is a horse rental 7 km away from here, owned by a member of our family that does horse riding in the spring, summer and autumn.
