Bjork Guesthouse is situated in the popular South Iceland summer resort of Laugarvatn. Offering comfortable and stylish family rooms with modern decor, it’s the perfect detour from a Golden Circle tour.
Location & Nearby
Bjork Guesthouse sits in the South Iceland town of Laugarvatn, around 48 miles (77.5 kilometers) from Reykjavik and 75 miles (120 kilometers) from Keflavík Airport. A well-known detour from the Golden Circle, the town sits almost directly between Pingvellir National Park and the Geysir Geothermal Area, two points for which the famed tour is known. This means that Bjork Guesthouse is a great base for visiting some of the top natural attractions that Iceland has to offer, including Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir geyser, as well as the ancient Skalholt bishop seat. The town itself is surrounded by stunning scenery, including impressive hills, lava fields, bucolic countryside, and a lush forest. Adding to the natural beauty of the area are several brooks and streams. If you visit during the summer months, you can hire boats and gear to take part in watersports on Lake Laugarvatn. The shores of this lake feature geothermal springs, and there is a spa here where you can relax in the geothermal swimming pool and three steam rooms. The town offers all of the basic amenities that you could need during your trip to Iceland and is within walking distance of Bjork Guesthouse. Laugarvatn also offers a gas station, shops, and restaurants. There’s also a handy Samkaup Strax supermarket very close to the guesthouse.
