Hotels and Guesthouses in Oraefi
open in winter and summer

 

About travelling in winter:

We are located 350 km (4 1/2 hour drive in summer) east of Reykjavík, via road 1. Please note that in icy and wintery conditions the travel time can be much longer. So we reccommend that you stay in a hotel or guesthouse in southeast Iceland the night before the trip. The closest hotel now is the new Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon just 3 km to our east, and the guesthouses in small group of farms called Hof are also close by, only 5 km west of our headquarters in Fagurholsmyri.

Litla Hof (+354 4781670) or nonhamar.is or vesturhus.is or Adventure Hotel Hof. We also have hotelskaftafell.is and svinafell.com about 18 km west of us.

Of course there are lot more guesthouses on both sides, from the area of the small village Klaustur to the town Höfn. Try www.visitvatnajokull.is or www.south.is for more information.
