Laugarfell is a magnificently located guesthouse for up to 28 travelers, found in the remote, untouched wilderness of East Iceland. A stay here cannot be missed by those visiting the region and eager to embark on a unique range of Highland adventures.
Location & Nearby
The wonderful thing about Laugarfell is that there are a few signs of civilization for miles around. The nearest settlement with plentiful amenities is Egilsstadir, over an hour’s drive away. As such, there are few places where you can immerse yourself in nature so deeply.
The guesthouse sits at the foot of the tallest mountain in the country, Mount Snaefell. This magnificent peak dominates the scenery and has created nearby features such as Kirkjufoss waterfall. As such, there are endless hiking trails you can embark on from the accommodation with ease.
It is not just those seeking to escape to the wilderness that elect to book at Laugarfell; it can be included as part of a wider adventure through the Eastfjords. After all, attractions such as the mystical lake Lagarfjlot and the enormous forest of Hallormstadaskogar can be driven to in less than an hour.
Facilities & Amenities
Guests lucky enough to be able to stay at Laugarfell have three choices of room; twin and double rooms with shared bathroom facilities, and four-bedroom family rooms with private facilities. All have a log-cabin style, with lovely wood paneling, providing even more ambiance to this rustic escape.
Due to the remoteness of the location, your meals can be sorted on-site. Furthermore, you can arrange to have packed lunches for your days out.
Laugarfell has two beautiful outdoor hot tubs for the use of its guests due to the geothermal activity in the area. Those seeking adventure will also find that they can arrange horseback riding, mountain biking, and Highland hiking on-site.
