Glacier View Guesthouse is located 220km east of Reykjavik, a pleasant 3 hours drive along the main ring road where you will pass many waterfalls, such as Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss, and mountains, The Black Beach, Dyrhólaey as well as glaciers.

We are on Route 209, 6km off the ring road between the towns of Vík and Kirkjubæjarklaustur. We are a peaceful hideaway surrounded by the beautiful and peaceful Skaftártungu region, between two majestic glaciers: Mýrdalsjökull Glacier and Vatnajökull Glacier (the largest ice cap in Europe).

If you are on your way to visit south coast highlights like Skaftafell or Jökulsárlón (Glacier Lagoon), or heading inland to explore highland areas like Landmannalaugar, or if you are simply out for an adventure in pristine surroundings, we have the accommodation for you.

We are a cozy, family run guesthouse with dramatic views over some of the beautiful Icelandic nature. Our rooms are newly built, spacious and with private bathrooms. In the main house we serve breakfast and a home-cooked dinner every evening. Our meals are made with love and we use lots of fresh local produce including local meat and fresh fish. With advance notice we are happy to cater for all types of dietary requirements such as vegetarian, vegan as well as lactose- and gluten intolerance. At the end of a day of exploring, come home and relax over a home-cooked meal - there's no better way to experience Icelandic hospitality.

We sincerely hope that your stay at Glacier View Guesthouse will be a pleasurable one.
