Wooden cottage with a great view, kitchenette, bathroom and sun patio. Studio with double bed, the sofa bed and 2 extra bed are charge extra. Cosy and bright with big windows. Short walk to the stables, horse rental. Family run business since 2000. Free Wi Fi and parking.

The space
View over volcano Eyjafjallajökull, as well as glacier Tindafjallajökull (weather permitting). Big windows but still a very cozy wooden cottage with private patio, free Wi Fi, free parking and relaxed atmosphere. Hestheimar is a family run business, well known for relaxed and homey atmosphere. We like our guests to feel like home and since most of them come back regularly, they become a part of the family.

Guest access
WIFI – available in all buildings.

Dinning room - in the main building. Feel free to come here drink coffee or hot chocolate and spend some relaxing time with the perfect view for countryside and 2 famous volcanos: Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull.

HOT TUB - The hot tub is normally open between 18:00 a 22:00 and if you would like to use the hot tub in wintertime, we need to know in advance (at least 1.5 hour before), since it is expensive to keep the geothermal warm water running into the hot tub and nobody is using it. Please note that hot tub is next to the main building.

Other things to note
Hestheimar´s precise location, GPS: Latitude / Longitude(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) (on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps and OpenStreetMap )

Northern lights usually do not appear before 10.00pm (wintertime) so make sure not to go to sleep too early, if the northern lights forecast is positive :)

Complimentary coffee and tea in all buildings.

BREAKFAST costs extra 18 Euros per person and has to be booked in advance. In wintertime we will prepare for you our famous breakfast basket with different kinds of bread, cereals, skyr, milk, butter, cheese, ham, some fruits and veggies and so on. In summertime (and in wintertime while having groups staying) we offer breakfast buffet in the main building from 8.00am-10.00am daily.

DINNER is NOT available in wintertime, except for groups. In summertime: June, July and August we offer 3 course dinner at 7.00pm for 6.000 ISK per person.
