I highly recommend Grimsborgir to anyone who is planning a trip to Iceland. A lot of people get caught up in the capital and don't venture out into the wilderness unless if it is for a day trip or tour. I was, however, extremely fortunate enough to discover this place and spend a night there with my girlfriend amidst our Golden Circle road trip.
The location is very romantic and ideal for couples wanting to get away and enjoy sometime alone time. Having said that, I can imagine it is also perfect for large families as the houses are of a great size and can accommodate a fair few people.
My girlfriend and I also ate at the restaurant located on site and the food was exquisite - I also highly recommend that you check that out if you have the chance.
Olafur and his wife, the couple who run and own Grimsborgir, were an absolute pleasure as well. They provided a top-quality service and were extremely friendly - couldn't have been better and my thanks goes out to them!
