Location & Nearby
Alfasteinn Country Home Guesthouse is a great combination off the beaten track while still being within driving distance of some of Iceland’s best sights. Wake up and enjoy the stunning surroundings and breathtaking views before you head out for the day. Close by you’ll find Urridafoss waterfall, the most voluminous waterfall in the country; as well as Lava Center, a high-tech exhibition where you can learn more about Iceland’s volcanoes. Children will love the interactive elements of the exhibition. If that’s not enough waterfall for you then Seljalandsfoss waterfall is also nearby. With a drop of 60m, it’s an impressive sight on any south coast tour of Iceland. Just 28 miles (45.5 kilometers) north is the famous Secret Lagoon, the oldest natural lagoon in Iceland. Warm and clean in any weather, the lagoon has an active geyser that spouts every few minutes and really is a sight to behold. You don’t even need to leave the guesthouse to enjoy some fabulous scenery. Other activities include hiking and biking trails on-site as well as horseback riding.
