Húsid Guesthouse is located in glorious Fljotshlid Valley, in south central Iceland. It is an easy and most scenic 90 minute drive from Reykjavík, turning off the “1” Ring Road for the last 10 minutes of the journey to reach Húsid.
Three icecaps loom over the Flótshlíd valley, including the now famous Eyjafjallajökull, the volcano that “stopped the world” for a number of days in 2010.
Situated in the recently designated Katla Geopark, Guesthouse Húsid is certainly located in a most dynamic location. Many scenic gems are to be found within easy striking distance. Waterfalls abound, large and small (including Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss). The Atlantic Coast is only a short distance away and includes the Westmann Islands, a great day out well worthy of considering using the short ferry ride. Iceland’s glaciers too can be seen close up with the opportunity to take a glacier hike for the more adventurous on Sólhemajökull.
With Guesthouse Húsid being located in the countryside, it offers dark winter nights with no light pollution, ideal for viewing the stars and the Northern Lights when conditions are right. Often the Northern Lights stream directly overhead Guesthouse Húsid.
Combining the stunning location with our cosy Guesthouse Húsid accommodation – which can include home cooked, traditional meals – allows our guests a deliciously tantalising taste of the very real, most true Iceland.
