Another five star review here for Lækjarhús. As others have mentioned, the cabins are clean, cozy and warm. Although the three cabins are next to one another, the thoughtful design of the cabins assures privacy and prevents you from having to look into a window of the neighboring cabin. Instead, you’re looking out across the fields to the ocean, or perhaps up at the beautiful cliffs that form the impressive backdrop of this quiet country property. The cabins are well-equipped and have just about everything that a small country cottage should have.
The cabins are located in a perfect location for exploring Skaftafell and the South East ‘Vatnajokull Region’. We took an amazing trip one day down the coast towards Hofn and took in the Jokusarlon lagoon, as well as the wild and empty back roads in the Heinaberg and Hoffell areas. The other day was spent hiking in the National Park at Skaftafell...both trips are highly recommended. And be sure to check out the turf roof church just down the road...it's one of only a handful left in all of Iceland!
Lastly, it should be noted that the proprietor, Eythor, is extremely accommodating and courteous, and he did a great job answering all of the questions I peppered him with.
If you plan on visiting Skaftafell, this is where you should stay!
