Solheimahjaleiga Guesthouse is a spectacularly located, family-run guesthouse in the shadow of Solheimajokull glacier, on an expansive sheep farm. Travellers to Iceland’s South Coast looking for a beautiful place to retire in the evening will find few better choices.
Location & Nearby
Solheimahjaleiga Guesthouse sits on the South Coast of Iceland, within sight of Solheimajokull glacier. A tongue of the third largest ice cap in the country, Myrdalsjokull, this is one of the region’s top highlights due to its incredible glacier hiking opportunities.
This location not only means it is surrounded by incredible views of mountains, rivers and farmland, but that all the other sights of the south are easily accessible. Just 15 and 35 minutes’ drive to the west, you can find the iconic waterfalls of Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss; 20 minutes east, and you’ll come to the Dyrholaey rock arch and the black sand beach of Reynisfjara.
Ring Road and South Coast travellers will also find it a great stop en route to the south-east, as the Skaftafell Nature Reserve and Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon are both less than three hours away.
The nearest town where you can find groceries, gas, banking and postal services is Vik, by Reynisfjara beach.
Facilities & Amenities
Guests to Solheimahjaleiga are accommodated in two stunning houses. Those travelling on a budget can stay in double, twin or triple rooms, which are beautifully furnished, have their own washbasin, and otherwise share bathroom facilities. Those who wish for an en suite will find plenty of standard double, twin and family rooms for up to five with them.
The most beautiful room in the house, however, is the deluxe family room, which can accommodate six and boasts a glacier-facing balcony.
Breakfast is included in the room price and served in the sociable dining room; you can also buy dinner here each evening. Part of the joy of staying at the Solheimahjaleiga is that it is located on a beautiful farm, where you can explore to meet the sheep, goats and chickens.
