Welcome To Fljótsdalsgrund

Explore The East

We could write a whole essay about the possibilities 

you have here in East Iceland and especially also in our beautiful valley. 

Instead, here’s a short list of things that might interest you:


Waterfalls A lot. We have a waterfall row ‘in front of our doorstep’. 

Mountains Yes. Everywhere.

Sun East Iceland has the best weather. We’re not making this up.

Recommendations National ParkHafrahvammagljúfurSkriðuklaustur,

Vök Baths

However you like to spend your time – it doesn’t take long to get there. 

Breakfast For Explorers

Are you a fan of a light breakfast with fruits and cereals?

Or do you prefer a hearty breakfast with eggs and sausages?

However you want to start your day, our breakfast buffet has you covered and guarantees energy throughout the day so that you can enjoy your adventures to the fullest. 

We use a variety of local products, self made jams and eggs from our own farm. 

If you want vegan options, we of course offer that, too. 

Breakfast is always included when you stay at our guest house.




Fljótsdalsgrund was built in 2009 by the local government that also owned the buildings. From 2009 to 2023 it was operated under the name Hengifoss Guesthouse by a local family. In 2023 we -Kjartan Benediktsson and Sólrún Júlía Hjartardóttir Kjerúlf-  bought the property and started a new guesthouse with the original name. 

We are looking forward to welcoming you.
