Beautiful home within driving distance of anything

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing. The radiant floors keep you warm, you have fantastic views all around. This is just off of the golden circle path, so it is 20 minutes from anything you want to see. The house is so beautiful and well kept. There is a washer/dryer combo, wifi, outdoor furniture for good weather days. It is not around many other properties, so light pollution is at a minimum meaning good views for the northern lights. The owners are extremely friendly and responsive. We cannot recommend this property any more. You need to book it asap!

Wonderful home in accessible yet private location

  • 5 of 5

The house is very lovely and I highly recommend it. The appliances, location, privacy of the place and the fact it was well kept up all contributed to our enjoyment of the place. This house is very ideal for a small group and it is surrounded by a lovely terrace.

Perfect Rental Home for Our Iceland Vacation

  • 5 of 5

After spending a few days exploring the Vatnajokull Glacier area, we wanted a home to rent that would be near the Golden Circle area. This beautifully appointed, clean and comfortable home was perfect for our needs. The house is located about 15 minutes from Geysir, and within 30 minutes of Gulfoss. One kilometer up the road is the village of Laugarvatn, with a gas station and grocery store and the Fontana Spa (which is half the price of the Blue Lagoon). Rakel and Martha were very helpful when we needed directions. Since there were just the two of us, we had plenty of room to relax, dine at our leisure, and enjoy our vacation. The washer/dryer is a nice bonus for travelers, too. We would totally recommend this rental.

Perfect house in Golden Circle

  • 5 of 5

This house is wonderfully located for exploring the Golden Circle, and offers beautiful views of the surrounding area. The house was very clean and well maintained with all the amenities we could want. Within a couple minutes drive you can find a gas and grocery store, restaurants and a lovely gallery/store which serves great coffee. The owners were extremely helpful, quick to respond and very friendly. This house would be ideal for small groups (we were 3), families or couples travelling together. We absolutely recommend it!

Beautiful location and house

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house in an absolutely stunning location, with amazing views from every angle. The house is immaculate with 3 smart bedrooms. The kitchen includes everything you could ever need and has a lovely open plan layout with the dining area and sitting room. The owners, Martha and Rakel, are really lovely and very helpful. The house is located very centrally for visiting the Golden Circle. We would thoroughly recommend booking this house.

Wonderful place in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable house, all the mod cons, fantastic views, clean and well maintained.

Easy access to the sights of the Golden Circle and further, allows at least an hour's start over the tourist coaches coming from Reykjayik :)

Fuel station just down the road, with shop for necessaries.

Thank you for the warm welcome and leading us to the supermarket when we first arrived, too.

Definitely recommended.

Dougal & Michele, London.

Laugarvatn is around 70 km from Reykjavík, placed midways between Þingvellir and Geysir – in the heart of the Golden Circle. The shortest way from Reykjavík lies through Þingvellir. The longer way lies towards Selfoss but turns left shortly before you get there for road no. 37 which takes you to Laugarvatn, about 90 km.

Laugarvatn has since long ago been a settlement for education and a popular summer resort among Icelanders. Today the population of Laugarvatn is around 250 but the number doubles during the winter month when the students arrive.

In the Laugardalur valley is a big area of cottages, hence there is various opportunity for leisure, i.e. one of the countries best sports-hall together with a outside swimmingpool and a fantastic sports-ground. By the lake of Laugarvatn it is possible to rent boats and windsurfing boards. All around Laugarvatn you will find lots of good walking paths, a golfcourse and an opportunity for angling in rivers and lakes, rent horses etc.

The Laugarvatn Fontana Spa opened in july 2011. See fontana.is.

In the village you will find, in addition to a great swimming pool, a post office, grocery store and a restaurant

Just outside Laugarvatn there is a golf course and possibilites for angling in waters and rivers and the area is great for hiking.

Laugarvatn is situated in a beautiful spot in the town of Laugarvatn, about 73 kilometres (45 miles) from the nation’s capital driving through Thingvellir or Parliament Plains. It is the perfect base for touring the “Golden Circle”, a triad of Iceland’s most popular natural wonders, the mighty Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir hot springs and Thingvellir National Park, the ancient site of the world’s first parliament.
