Trekked 2.5hrs through a snowstorm from Skogar and it was totally worth it. Beautiful drive. Absolutely stunning lagoon. Would recommend 100%.

We had stayed at Horgsland guesthouse. But it won’t fit in your budget. It might cost you around 300aud for 2 nights including breakfast. Around 45 minuets drive from the guesthouse to the Lagoon. No need to travel and stay... More
