Description

Hlin Guesthouse is a wonderful choice of accommodation in the rural landscapes of North Iceland with views of the Highlands. Those eager to get off the beaten track on their journey to this diverse region will find it perfectly nestled away from the hustle and bustle, and it has rooms to suit different budgets and needs.

Location & Nearby

Hlin Guesthouse is just ten minutes south of the tiny village of Varmahlid, which sits on Route 1 (the road that encircles the country). It is thus immersed in countryside bliss, with rolling fields, Icelandic horses, and beautiful rivers all in the surrounding area; further afield, and you’ll see the dramatic mountains of Iceland’s interior.

Varmahlid has a few basic services for travelers but is more famous for being home to authentic Icelandic turf houses, which are very rare around the country. For more amenities, you can drive to the capital of North Iceland, Akureyri, which is just over an hour away.

From here, it is easy to access the most popular sites of the north; Godafoss waterfall, the Lake Myvatn area and Dettifoss waterfall are just around 30, 60, and 90 minutes drive respectively.

An advantage of staying at Hlin Guesthouse rather than one near Akureyri is the fact that it makes sites further west more accessible; the infinity pool at Hofsos takes just half-hour to reach, whereas the Hvitserkur rock monolith and its surrounding seal watching sites can be accessed in around an hour and a half.

Facilities & Amenities

Hlin Guesthouse is a comfortable building with beautiful views and several amenities. The spacious garden has outdoor furniture and a picnic area, great to enjoy under the Midnight Sun, while there also is a communal TV room for less pleasant days. A shared kitchen with all the appliances you can need is also available throughout the day and night.

Free parking and free Wifi in the public areas are provided for all guests, and unlike most other guesthouses, pets are welcome for no additional cost.

The most affordable rooms are the standard doubles and twins, which have shared bathroom facilities; otherwise, you can book double, twin, or triple rooms with private bathrooms, some of which have access for wheelchairs.

Why Choose Hlin Guesthouse?

Whether you are seeking affordability, access to nature, or to experience Iceland away from the crowds, Hlin Guesthouse should speak to you. Check availability by choosing a date.
