Hrifunes

Hrifunes is an area of stunning natural beauty, at the heart of South Iceland's pure landscape. During your stay you will experience an unspoiled scenery of black sand plains, dramatic glaciers and fourishing vegetation.
Hrifunes is also perfectly placed for exploring some of Iceland's most impressive sights. Many of Iceland's greatest natural treasures are in easy reach, such as Landmannalaugar, the Laki Craters and Langisjor Lake.
This makes Hrifunes Guesthouse a great stepping-off point for exploring the area. In addition to being the closest guesthouse to the Landmannalaugar exit (F-208 southeast), we are:

  • only 1.5 hours' drive from the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon and Skaftafell in Vatnajokull National Park.
  • only a 45-minute drive from Reynisfjara the amazing black sand beach and Cape Dyrholaey, near the town of Vik.
  • only 2 hours' drive from Landmannalaugar, the pearl of the highlands.

Honestly, the best place we stayed at during our one week in iceland. The place reminds me of a provencial life with its antiques, cameras, and decor. The breakfast was simply one of the best meals I've had in Iceland. Super clean, comfy, and accommodating. It was our favorite place to stay and we highly recommend it to others traveling in South Iceland.
