Description

Armot Guesthouse is a beautiful place to stay on a horse farm in southeast Iceland, close to the Golden Circle and South Coast sites, with rooms for travelers of different budgets. Those exploring the country's best natural attractions looking for a countryside bed and breakfast will find Armot Guesthouse an excellent choice.

Location & Nearby

Armot Guesthouse is just eight miles (12.5 kilometers) from the village of Hvolsvollur, a settlement that sits on Iceland's ring road between the Golden Circle and South Coast sightseeing routes. This location allows guests to surround themselves with rural landscapes while still having access to amenities such as grocery stores, gas stations, and tour information.

Hvolsvollur is also home to the fascinating Lava Center, an interactive museum that exhibits information on the volcanic forces at work in the area, and the Saga Center, where you can learn about Iceland's epic storytelling history.

Seljalandsfoss waterfall, the first major attraction of the South Coast and one you can fully encircle in clear weather, is 17 miles (27 kilometers) east. Here, you can also find the hidden waterfall of Gljufrabui. You can continue to the other features of the sightseeing route from these beautiful sites, including the more powerful Skogafoss waterfall, the black sand beach of Reynisfjara, and the Dyrholey rock arch, where you can watch puffins in summer.

Those staying at Armot Guesthouse can even reach more distant South attractions within a day, such as the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, with much more ease than those based in Reykjavik. This site, also called the crown jewel of Iceland's nature, is 173 miles (279 kilometers) away.

The nearest feature of the Golden Circle sightseeing route is the Geysir Geothermal Area, where you can discover the exploring hot spring of Strokkur and many other bubbling pools and steaming vents. This site is 63 miles (101 kilometers) north. A few miles from Geysir is Gullfoss, one of the country's most spectacular and famous waterfalls.

The final site of this tourist trail is the geological wonderland of Thingvellir National Park, which sits between two tectonic plates 39 miles (59.5 kilometers) from Geysir.

Facilities & Amenities

Those staying at Armot Guesthouse on a budget will likely want to book a twin or double room with shared bathroom facilities. These are clean, bright, and well-furnished. Alternatively, couples or groups of three can book standard rooms with en suite bathrooms, including showers, hairdryers, toiletries, or even deluxe double rooms with more space.

Those who wish to see the northern lights in winter or the midnight sun in summer from the comfort of their rooms should book junior suites with balconies. These apartments also have en suites bathrooms and kitchenettes.

Breakfast is provided each morning, and WiFi and parking are complimentary. Guests can enjoy the terrace and garden, which lead to many hiking routes in the area, and the shared TV lounge. Furthermore, you are welcome to meet the friendly Icelandic horses at the local farm.
