The Fossatun Camping Pods and Cottages are a beautiful set of log cabins and glamping units in the stunning landscapes of West Iceland with a hot tub. Travelers looking for a unique immersion in nature close to many major attractions will find them to be a modern, magical escape.
Location & Nearby
The Fossatun Camping Pods and Cottages are immersed in West Iceland, surrounded by rural landscapes and breathtaking mountains. Though somewhat far-flung, you'll be able to find plenty of amenities in the town of Borgarnes, which is 14 miles (22 kilometers) away. This historic settlement has shops, grocery stores, restaurants, tourist centers, the fascinating Icelandic Settlement Center, and beautiful coastal views.
Many natural attractions are within similarly easy driving distance. The waterfalls of Hraunfossar and Barnafoss, which are renowned for their striking formations and contrasting appearances, are 22 miles (35 kilometers) east. The car park for the hiking route that leads to the third-tallest waterfall in the country, Glymur, is 29 miles (47 kilometers) down the road.
Meanwhile, the highest-flowing hot spring in Europe, the spectacular Deildartunghver, is 33 miles (52 kilometers) away. Next to this feature is Krauma, a luxurious geothermal spa, and Vidgelmir, a lava tube you can book tours to explore.
Though the sites of West Iceland are most accessible, the Golden Circle and Snaefellsnes Peninsula can both be explored within a day. The Golden Circle is Iceland's most popular sightseeing route, boasting the geological wonderland of Thingvellir National Park, the geothermal area of Geysir, and the dramatic waterfall of Gullfoss.
Snaefellsnes is renowned for its many diverse attractions, with a glacier, unique beaches, basalt formations, lava fields, and historic villages.
