Karuna Guesthouse Litlu-Grof is a fantastic place to stay in rural North Iceland, boasting a hot tub. With rooms for different budget levels and a remote, beautiful location, those exploring the Ring Road or heading north should book while availability lasts.

Location and Nearby

Karuna Guesthouse Litlu-Grof is nestled in the mountainous, rural landscapes of North Iceland. Most notably, it is just two miles (three kilometers) north of the Glaumbaer turf farm and museum, one of the few examples of authentic turf architecture left in the country. Most of these buildings were lost with the onset of industrialization, so Glaumbaer is a must-see for travelers who love history.

Though immersed in the countryside, the Karuna Guesthouse is close to the town of Saudarkrokur, where you can access shops, restaurants, post offices, gas stations, and other services. They are seven miles (14 kilometers) apart. This settlement is historical, traditional, and authentic, and its main attraction is the geothermal pool that was mentioned in Grettis Saga, one of Iceland’s oldest works of literature.

For a geothermal bathing experience, you should head to Hofsos, a village with an infinity pool overlooking the ocean, which is just 30 miles (48 kilometers) from the accommodation. This settlement also has cliffs with hexagonal basalt columns, making them fascinating to geology enthusiasts.

Karuna Guesthouse Litlu-Grof is also a great place to stay for Ring Road travelers, as Route 1 is only seven miles (11 kilometers) away. It is well-positioned between the main attractions of the west and the north, allowing you to spend an entire day in each region without spending too long on the road. It is also within driving distance of the Westfjords, making it a good pitstop before entering this vast, primordial region.

The largest major settlement in North Iceland, Akureyri, is 65 miles (105 kilometers) to the east. Those looking for a greater variety of shops and restaurants than you can find at Saudarkrokur should head here. Many tour operators in the regions also start their excursions from this town, allowing you to embark on a range of adventures such as whale watching, horseback riding, and river rafting.

Facilities and Amenities

Karuna Guesthouse Litlu-Grof has a range of 113 square feet (10.5 square meters) twin bedrooms with shared bathroom facilities. Toiletries are complimentary. Every room is equipped with a flat-screen television, linens, and towels, and the furnishings are clean and welcoming. Free WiFi is available in every unit, and all traveling groups have access to a parking space.

Many rooms also have views over the beautiful surroundings.

In terms of communal amenities, the most appealing feature of Karuna Guesthouse Litlu-Grof is the outdoor geothermal hot tub on the sun terrace. Here, you can bathe under the midnight sun in summer and look out for the northern lights in winter. The auroras can be seen with ease on clear nights due to the lack of light pollution in the surrounding area.
