Laugarvatn, South Region
Have an extraordinary Icelandic experience while staying at our beautiful & peaceful summerhouse. Watch the northern lights dancing in the sky from the outdoor hottub while relaxing after an adventurous day around the Golden Circle (Gullfoss, Geysir). The summerhouse is in a gated area 7 minutes from Geysir and 10 minutes from Laugarvatn.

Stayed here for a week while exploring south west Iceland. Had some issues finding the house in the dark and ended up sleeping in laugvartn but found it the next day. Once there was a great base to see all the main sights in the golden circle. House was very spacious, could have slept at least 7 even though there...

How to get there
From Reykjavík

You drive toward Laugarvatn, drive through it and keep on driving for around 7-10 minutes, and than you are in the right area of the summerhouse.

There are 2 ways to drive to Laugarvatn, you will have to choose one. First there is the basic route where almost everyone drive, that is the mainroad nr 1, There you drive toward Selfoss, just before entering Selfoss you take a left into the country on road nr. 35 all the way to you cross road nr 37 to Laugarvatn, through it for 710 more minutes and there you take a left into our area called Reykjarskógur. (Gunnarsbraut) there you see the gate you need to enter with the code I have written here below.

Then it is the other road through Þingvellir, so if you are not in a hurry on the day you arrive and you are here in the day...
