Hrifunes Glacier View Guesthouse is a beautiful place to stay, smack-bang in the middle of the South Coast sightseeing route. Travelers seeking a far-flung escape in a hotel with private bathrooms and a reputation for comfort should not overlook this choice of accommodation, particularly those driving the Ring Road or immersing themselves in this spectacular region.
Location & Nearby
The Glacier View Guesthouse is located 35 minutes drive east of Vik and 35 minutes west of Kirkjubaejarklaustur. Both of these villages have amenities such as grocery stores and gas stations, as well as services for travelers, meaning you aren’t too far-flung from civilization.
More excitingly, the Glacier View Guesthouse is located right in the heart of the South Coast sightseeing route. Due to the abundance of sites along this trail, many visitors staying in Reykjavik are only able to see those up to Vik before turning back, or get all the way to Jokulsarlon but miss many attractions due to the distance.
By staying here, you can thus give all the wonderful feats of nature the attention they deserve.
Just over half an hour to the west, one can reach the black sand beach of Reynisfjara and the gargantuan rock arch of Dyrholaey; travel for another half hour, and you’ll reach Skogafoss waterfall, and in another half hour you’ll reach Seljalandsfoss.
Traveling east, you can reach the spectacular Skaftafell Nature Reserve in 1.5 hours, and the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon in two.
Facilities & Amenities
The Glacier View Guesthouse provides free breakfast for all its guests, and soup and dessert each evening for a small cost; lamb, fish, and vegan options will be provided, the former two of which are beloved national dishes. There is also a communal living room for guests to socialize in, and Wifi is free throughout the accommodation.
In terms of rooms, you have a selection of four options to choose from. Couples will find the standard double great, whereas groups of three can book a double room with a sleeping sofa. Families or groups of up to four can instead stay in one of two types of family room, one with four single beds and one with one double and a bunk bed.
