“Wonderful people, great location”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We stayed at Grimsstadir Guesthouse for two nights in late August 2012 while visiting Jökulsárgljúfur National Park. The owners, Sigga and Bragi, were very gracious, welcoming and helpful in planning our day long hike in the park. The meals Sigga prepared were delicious, the best on our trip.

The location feels like it's in the middle of nowhere but that's how it is in this part of Iceland. We had a hard time finding accomodation anywhere near the park but this fit the bill perfectly (only 15-20 miles to Dettifoss, which is a must-see).

We here that a Chinese company is planning to build a huge resort nearby so check out the status of that if that concerns you.

Room Tip: They have a separate building for the budget backpacker folks. That wasn't for us. We stayed i...

The guesthouse and camping available here are located close to a crossroads just off route 864. It is approximately 28 km from Dettifoss, 40 km from Mývatn and 56 km from Ásbyrgi amongst other sites. It is also ideally located to view the Northern Lights since light pollution in the area is negligible.

The owners of the farmhouse, which incorporates the guesthouse, are incredibly kind and generous people who made us feel welcome every minute we spent there! The farmhouse itself is a beautiful wooden structure imported from Norway which is very well kept and both bedrooms and bathroom were spotlessly clean.

If we ever had to visit the area we would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it!!
