Icecaps and glaciers, spouting geysers and steaming solfataras, volcanoes, raging rivers and magnificent waterfalls, a bevy of birds, cavorting whales offshore and much more are on your Iceland itinerary. Among lively Reykjavik's multitude of attractions are Hallgrimur's Church, a bevy of geothermal baths and sizzling hot nightlife. The Icelandic capital is the starting point for the Golden Circle Route driving tour through the southwest. The mineral-rich Blue Lagoon is a 40-minute drive from the city.

Camp Boutique is a unique tent hotel located next to a black sand beach in the South Coast of Iceland.
This place was awesome! The lady who ran the place was super nice and helpful! We had access the house with bathrooms, showers, and hot chocolate, the barn with a cozy hangout area, and of course the tent. The tent was super warm! We arrived late, so we told her ahead of time and she was so kind to start the heater in our tent and mattress. The heat was perfect! We would definitely come back!

Original North - is a small family business located on an estate named Vað in Þingeyjarsveit which has belonged to our family for generations. This area has a unique spirit where it is easy to relax in the nature. We offer two types of accommodation. Luxury glamping tents or rent our country house. Glamping is one of the most uniq way to experience the Icelandic nature in the best way, sitting outsite and enjoy the quietness, listening to the birds and the river, while watching the sun sets. The tents are very well equipped, for example a carpet on the floor, furnitures, heating system and a heating blankets in beds. It´s only few meters to toilets and showers. High speed Wi-Fi.
An experience I will remember forever. Our Family tent was amazing with heat, plenty of outlets, bed warmers, wonderful bedding, strong WiFi, clean facilities, and the views and quiet country side were amazing. Our hosts were attentive to small details. We could not stay after check in due to an appt in Husavik and when we returned our heaters were on and we were led to our tent by our host on his electric bike with head lamp. Breakfast was wonderful with homemade humus and jams along with other local and meat options. We stayed two nights and enjoyed every minute and this was my kind of camping (glamping).

Welcome to a new way to experience Iceland’s Golden Circle. Sleep in one of nine custom-made yurts, built in Mongolia but inspired and furnished in contemporary Icelandic design. This is glamping at its best – sleeping under canvas yet with the comfort of private wash facilities and underfloor heating.
We stayed at Nattura Yurtel for two nights during our week in Iceland. We were so pleased with the ease of check-in and our yurt when we arrived late on our first night. We found all of the amenities to be extremely well appointed, including the shower, breakfast yurt, and our bathroom and kitchen areas within our yurt. The location was also excellent. From our yurt, we could see geysirs erupting the distance as well as the “sunset” over the mountains. Gullfoss and the geothermal area are both right up the road, and Thingvellir NP was also easily accessible for an afternoon trip. Perhaps best of all was the graciousness and friendliness of our host. She provided lots of helpful information prior to check-in and was able to give local recommendations for during our stay. She also loaned us chargers for Icelandic outlets, going above and beyond to ensure that our stay was convenient and comfortable. We would happily stay again or recommend staying here to anyone touring Iceland’s Golden Circle!

There was no one at the campground when we arrived. You have to check in at the hotel right down the street. It was late afternoon and not many people were there yet, so we got a pretty good spot. I can see it being very crowded in the summer though. The bathrooms were clean, and free to campers with a code after hours when it is locked. The kitchen area was helpful and there is also a living room like area to hang out in. After dark many people were gathered outside as there were slight views of the northern lights which was pretty cool. We went to the hotel for a night cap which was good. Tip - The Vinbudin in town is CLOSED on Sundays and closes pretty early on other days also. The campground did fill up, so instead of showering there in the morning, we decided to check out the new pool in town. Great pool/hot tubs, not crowded in the morning, and large showers too. Highly recommend!

Arhus is located along the Ranga River, 100 km east of Reykjavik on the Ring road, Route 1. Set in idyllic fields on the banks of the river, we offer cottage and sleeping bag accommodation, in addition to a campsite and RV area. We also have an on-site restaurant serving a rich variety of local plates and global favourites. We also have a fully-stocked bar and a terrace overlooking the river, perfect for relaxing on a sunny evening. Each of our cottages has a kitchenette, with fridge, hob and electric kettle provided as standard. All cottages have private WCs and showers. The separate Arhus service building has a communal kitchen, dining area and laundry facilities for campers and those with RV's. Guests can also enjoy free Wi-Fi in public areas. We also provide BBQ equipment and there is a play area to keep the children happy
When we arrived there was a note stating to check in at the restaurant. The restaurant was closed due to flooding or something. Luckily we ran in to some other travelers who had called the establishment. We were told the door to our room was open and to just go in. The room was fine, not great, but fine. However, the shower didn't drain so you had to turn the water off while showering or you would flood the floor. The piece holding the handheld shower head was broken so you had to hold it. The rain shower was not that great. The floor is slippery when coming out of the shower and there was no bath mat and no extra towel to put on the floor.

In the middle of nowhere, the land should be next to free. So it is not comprehensible why they have to build these cottages so ridiculously small!? The cabin was very cramped with 2 bunk beds and a small sitting area and kitchenette. There is no hot water to wash hands, and there is no shower in the cabin. You will need to walk to the Central building, where they charge you 50kr for a two-minute shower (insert more coins for a longer shower). No bath towels. No WiFi network (no free wifi or even for a fee, anywhere in the campground). No services at all (sweep floor and clean up your own garbage can). Maybe, the only good thing is free parking!

Fantastic little lodges. Spotlessly clean and fantastic walk in shower. Toasty warm inside after a cold wet day. Netflix available to use. Super comfy bed and everything we needed for a very enjoyable stay. Super friendly dogs who love to fetch their ball. Would definitely recommend. Much better than a hotel.

I can only say good things about Glaðheimar cottages. Booked super last minute (same day) and was warmly welcomed and even guided to the site. The cottage was cozy, the bed as well and the blinds provided full darkness at night in the Icelandic summer which was very welcoming :). I can absolutely recommend their customer service and the owner was going great lenghts to help out with a car breakdown the next morning referring me to the right people on a Sunday when everything was closed. I am very thankful and will definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Blönduos :). Takk fyrir mig.
