We specialise in tours in the Vatnajokull National Park area, whether it´s a tour to the Ice caves, a super jeep tour or a snowmobile tour. We also have sightseeing tours on small buses for groups. It is our passion to provide our customers to experience the astonishing nature in the area. LET US SHOW YOU WHAT THE GEM OF SOUTH EAST HAS TO OFFER

Fallastakkur's Lækjarhús & farm is amazing, and Laufey & Guðlaugur are exceptional, informative, accommodating and kind hosts. The guest house is immaculate and extremely cozy, and the farm is spectacular! I have stayed at Lækjarhús twice; the first time when I travelled to Iceland as a grad student with a few other graduate students (geologists), and I enjoyed it so much that the second time I went to Iceland, I contacted Laufey and returned to Lækjarhús with my family. I stayed at Lækjarhús for several days each time I visited, and both times it was a great experience! My family absolutely loves Laufey & Guðlaugur and their farm! As a matter fact, my nine-year-old often asks when about when we are going to go back to Iceland and visit them, LOL. My kids were able to see firsthand how to care for animals on the farm, and that was very special and appreciated, because back home we live in the suburbs. We also went on a few Fallastakkur tours arranged by Laufey and her family, including a guided glacier trip in their Super Jeep to Vatnajökull with Guðlaugur, and a zodiac trip at Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon with her brother. Both tours were highlights of our trip! Laufey & Guðlaugur's farm is excellently located, which enabled us to visit/explore Vatnajökull, Skaftafell National Park/Svartifoss, Ingolfshöfdi Nature Reserve (to see puffins!!), Höfn, Hof, Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, the Skeiðarársandur, and so much more. It's in a truly beautiful and spectacular part of Iceland. I highly recommend
Fallastakkur if you're looking to for a place to stay or visit when you're in the southeast of Iceland, or want to take some exciting guided tours. I cannot recommend it enough! Next time we visit Iceland, we will be sure to once again stay at Lækjarhús.
