I selected to stay at Hestheimar because it was way outside any nearby city, thus giving the night sky plenty of darkness for Northern Light watching. Luckily one of the evenings, I was in my room and saw the Aurora from my window and was...More
This guest house is situated un the middle of nowhere, with views of hekla and eyjafjallajökull. When the aurora appears, you ca see it just 100 m outside the cottages.

During our ten day trip to Iceland we stayed in numerous guest houses along the golden circle. Without exception our Icelandic hosts were very welcoming. Hestheimar stood out because the owners live right on site and make a special effort to mingle with the guests...More

Dear Lynda, thank you for your inquiry. Yes, Hestheimar is located in ca 2 hour´s driving distance from Landmannalaugar, so you and your family could easily do some hiking there and return to Hestheimar in the afternoon or evening. However, you need to know that you can only go to Landmannalaugar from ca 20.6. each year and until Christmas time on a regular car, but if you are driving on a super jeep, then you can go all year round. Please do not hesitate to contact me again, if you would like to book accommodation in Hestheimar or if you need more information. For you and your family I would recommend to book 2 double rooms in the main building or the Guesthouse, but we also offer cottages.Best regards, Lea Helga Ólafsdóttir, owner of Hestheimar, Guesthouse and horse farm.
