We were lucking in finding a place at Alfasteinn, while most hotels and B&B were already sold out. Its location not far from the main road is very convenient for visiting the major attractions in the South and West of Iceland. There are a few very decent restaurant within a short driving distance, and a convenience store closeby. The rooms... More

My partner and I, with her 11 year-old daughter were made to feel incredibly welcome in Agust's amazing house. Agust is the most incredibly gracious, generous and welcoming host. He was up before us in the mornings and went to bed hours after us every day to ensure that everything for our trip was just perfect. Whilst in Iceland he... More

My boyfriend and I stayed with August for 3 days and nights in his lovely cabin and it was filled with lots of laughs, beautiful excursions and delicious home cooked meals. August has a great sense of humor, is so kind, patient and a wonderful host who makes you feel like his cabin is your home while you are there.... More

The cabin is very picturesque. 8 of us had booked in to stay, we eventually found the cabin after difficulty getting there. Through our own mistakes. Agust was kind enough to meet us at a petrol station nearby and show us the way. It was very late and he was so accommodating considering the time! In regards to the cabin... More

We would like to thank August and Maria for their warm hospitality and making our stay at the Alfasteinn Guesthouse so special! We were lucky to be there for the midsummer night in 2014 and had a chance to celebrate this special time of the year in Þórsmörk with August as the PERFECT guide. The trip there in itself was...

My stay at Agust's place in Hella far exceeded my expectations. The cozy cabin, interesting conversations and home-cooked meals made me extend my stay. And then there were the wonderful day hikes that we did - around Landmanalauger and from Skigarfoss to Thorsmork. Agust was a wonderful guide whose knowledge and passion for hiking made these incredible hikes even more... More

Your host, Agust Runarsson, will make your entire group feel as if they have known him for years. None of us had met him previously when he picked up our group at Keflavik airport. Within 10 minutes, it felt as if we had been working one-on-one for weeks. By the end of the morning, it was as if he had... More

Agust, the owner & host, is what I would describe as a concierge Icelandic adventure ambassador. My first trip to Alfasteinn house was a fast paced 4 day adventure trip with 5 guys, while my second trip was a slower paced family trip. What struck me most on these trips was Agust's ability to read people, anticipate needs, and deliver... More

Agust Runarsson, owner and host at Alfansteinn Guesthouse provides not only superb hospitality, but will make your stay in Iceland the best possible experience. He will personalize your tour, listens carefully to what you want to do and then plans very specifically. Alfasteinn is very comfortable and homey where you will have a view of Hekla and Iceland horses roaming... More
