The Farmhouse Lodge

It is an amazing place to stay in South Iceland. When we designed the accommodations, we wanted to embrace the history of the place and the farmers who had lived here in nature through the centuries.

There are fantastic views of the Black sand beach, Eyjafjallajökull Volcano, Mýrdalsjökull and Southern lowlands to the Atlantic ocean.

One of the unique qualities of Farmhouse Lodge is its location in the country where no light or traffic pollution exists. It is within a 2-hour approximation from the most scenic attractions in south Iceland for an endless list of leisure activities and you can reach the most scenic attractions within a day from the Farmhouse, for example, it is only a two-hour drive to Glacier Lagoon and Vatnajokull National Park. It is optimal to have a base at Farmhouse and enjoy your adventurous travel during the day and enjoy quiet evenings.

Activities

Dyrhólaey, Reynisfjara

Just a few minutes’ drive from Skeiðflöt is Dyrhólaey (10 km / 6 mi), a protected promontory with sheer cliffs facing the sea and rich birdlife in the summer, one of the most popular stops when travelling through Mýrdalur. A little further east is Reynisfjara beach (16 km / 10 mi), where the ocean waves pound the inky black sand, overlooked by peculiar columnar basalt and curious caves. A little further out to sea, troll-like rock formations rise up from the deep.

Sólheimajökull, Mýrdalsjökull

Around 17 km / 11 mi from Skeiðflöt are the roots of Iceland’s longest icefall, Sólheimajökull, which carves its way through the land from Mýrdalsjökull’s ice cap. There you can see the vast beauty of the glacier while also witnessing the irrefutable evidence of climate change. Operators at Ytri-Sólheimar (10 km / 6 mi) run snowmobile tours and super jeep tours to Mýrdalsjökull. You could also join guided glacier hikes and ice-climbing tours.

Skógafoss, Seljalandsfoss, and an interesting district museum

Eyjafjallajökull, the volcano that famously erupted in 2010 and disrupted travel plans the world over, is clearly visible from Skeiðflöt. By its eastern foothills is waterfall Skógafoss, stunningly beautiful and deservedly famous (20 km / 12.5 mi). Another well-known waterfall, Seljalandsfoss, is 28 km / 17.5 mi further west, and the drive there takes you through landscapes that are unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Skógar is also home to one of Iceland’s best heritage and transportation museums, where you can get a taste of what life was like for the region’s residents in the decades leading up to and following the turn of the 20th century. The museum shows how improved transportation and telecommunications completely changed life in Iceland when the technological revolution arrived around 100 years ago.

Reviews

Highly recommend!

This was a quaint little guest house and my favorite out of the 4 places we’ve stayed in Iceland (for reference we stayed at the Hilton and hotel Leifur in Reykjavik, Lambastadir, and Selfoss). We stayed at one of the 4 rooms by the reception area. The view from the dining area was pastoral. The receptionists were pleasant. It’s about a 10 min drive to the town of Vik which is not bad at all. Also about a 15 min drive to Skogafoss. They have a common kitchen that you can use to cook. The place felt very cozy and loved their little book corner.

Charming accommodation, great service

Charming and neat guesthouse with nice amenities. We had to re-schedule our stay a few times but the staff was always very positive, kind, flexible, and accommodating. I highly recommend this place!
The guesthouse is also conveniently located for exploring Vík and the surrounding areas.

Clean, friendly Lodge just a quick drive from Vík!

A nice lodge with very friendly staff! The rooms are very spacious and modern. Buffet area features coffee | tea available at all times, and seating areas with nice views.
The breakfast buffet itself was very nice, with phenomenal croissants to boot!

Vík is 15 minutes away, with the popular Dyrhólaey and Reynisfjara beaches within close proximity as well.

Best place to stay near Dyrhólaey

We really enjoyed a day in there. Breakfast was great with freshly baked bread and buns, there was NO shortage of hot water like in the hotel nearby and our room was really clean. If you care about making food yourself, there is also fully equipped kitchen to common use. 10/10, wish we could stay longer.The breakfast buffet itself was very nice, with phenomenal croissants to boot!

Fabulous hospitality!

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Farmhouse Lodge. Such a serene setting, simple yet elegant decor, and the nicest hosts you can ask for. When we experienced car trouble, they went above and beyond to help out and make sure we were taken care of. We will be back!
