This brand new private room is located in a unique spot, situated right under the mountains, below a waterfall, with a glacier on one side and with a clear ocean view!Less than a 10 minute drive from Jökulsárlón (Glacier lagoon) This rural county has been one of the most isolated areas in Iceland, but now offers so many activities! The location is perfect for exploring the South of Iceland as well as if you´re driving the ring road. The room includes a private bathroom with a big shower.

The space
Our brand new room has everything you need for a comfortable stay. We also have two other identical rooms in the house for rent, so if you´re in need of more rooms, please let us know.

The bed can either be prepared as a double bed or two single beds.

The room does not come with a kitchen but we can recommend restaurants in the area.

Guest access
Your room and your private bathroom. And all the surroundings in the area of course.

Other things to note
The GPS location showing on AIRBNB is not completely accurate as the site cannot find the remote area. It´s close enough though. For further instructions please see the directions category.

Being located deep in rural Iceland, we cannot promise that the wifi is always stable. Most days it is 100%, fast and stable.

The next grocery store is 70km away and please be aware that you won´t have access to a kitchen. There is a small refrigerator in your room where you can store some goods but we do not provide tableware. Even though our house is in a very rural area, we can recommend good restaurants in the area.

Gerdi Guesthouse (2km away) serves breakfast and dinner every day.

Þórbergssetur (next to Gerdi) are both a restaurant and a cafe and serve food all day.

Fjallsórlón (5-6km away) serve food until 17 or 18 (depends on the season).

Jón Ríki (36km away) a great restaurant with beautiful views over the glacier, and its own microbrewary. They also have a petting zoo. We recommend a dip in the outdoor hot tubs in Hoffell after/before the meal. Make sure to bring cash (500kr/per person) as there is self service to the hot tubs.

The closest town is Höfn, where'll you find grocery stores, good restaurants and a public swimming pool. Oh and yeah, the town is famous for its Icelandic lobster.

Location

Jökulsárlón, Iceland

With the biggest glacier in Europe as well as the national park Vatnajökull practically in your garden, our home is in a unique location for anyone who enjoys the outdoors. Hike up to the waterfall behind the house and enjoy a beautiful sunset with a panoramic view of the ocean as well as a view over Öræfajökull, the highest peak in Iceland and Iceland´s largest active volcano. Or stargaze outside our house while watching the northern lights in the winter!
The area offers so many enjoyable experiences from the glacier lagoon, geothermal hot tubs, hiking, the best brewery/restaurant in the South of Iceland and Þórbergssetur, a museum and cultural center, devoted to Þórbergur's work, only 2 km east of Reynivellir. We highly recommend touring the museum.

You literally can't get bored in the area and if you want to go on tours there are ice-caving tours available, kayaking on a glacier lagoon and even a petting zoo where the main star is a world famous goat, well known for its performance in Hollywood movies!

During your stay
There´s self check-in with our key box outside the house. We are always available via Airbnb or phone but we don´t live in the area. To unlock the door, you have to pull the knob clockwise, not anticlockwise like most doors. You might have to pull it a little bit (closer to you). The door is new and can be a little bit stiff.
