Everyone from couples to larger groups will find their location, warmth and amenities appealing, particularly those spending a few days travelling the South Coast or taking a Ring Road adventure.
Location & Nearby
The Hunkubakkar Guesthouse is remote enough that there are few signs of human intrusion in the surrounding nature, while still being perfectly located in Iceland’s south. It is just five minute’s drive from Kirkjubaejarklaustur, a charming, historic village where you can find groceries, gas and cultural sites, and only one kilometre off the Route 1.
This location makes it a fantastic pit-stop for Ring Road travellers. After a day of exploring the mesmerising South Coast sites of Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls, Solheimajokull glacier, and Reynisfjara beach, you can retire at the guesthouse, and spend the next day visiting the equally incredible Fjadrargljufur Canyon, Skaftafell Nature Reserve and Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon.
Because of the incredible beauty of these sites and the other hidden gems of the region, those looking to take their time exploring the south could spend several days with the Hunkubakkar Guesthouse as a base.
