Why Klara Iris chose Laugarvatn
In the center of golden circle, is great for exploring or relax at the Fontana geothermal steam baths. Laugarvatn is a village with 300 inhabitants and is located midway between Þingvellir, Gullfoss and Geysir. The cabin is about 80 km from Reykjavík. 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 possibilities for angling in waters and rivers and the area is great for hiking. If you wan´t to go river rafting or horse riding there is much to offer.
What makes this Cabin unique
The cabin has a great view over mountains and the lake Laugavatn. It´s a quiet place where you can relax and enjoy the environment, take a walk or hiking.

If you like rustic, this is the place!
Stayed with my two daughters over Christmas. On the plus side Klara was a great hostess and we were greeted with a bottle of wine on arrival. The location is very convenient to many of the top attractions, Gulfoss, Geysir, and the Silfa rift, as the view of Laugarvatn across the lake cannot be beat. The place was also wonderful for Northern lights as we sow them form the front deck one night. We also enjoyed the hot tub and the wonderful view from the windows. The outdoor shower (heated) gave the place a campy feel and fortunately we were not big bakers as the oven is out in a room off the deck. All in all I would return in a heartbeat and can imagine a stay there in the summertime. It was a fantastic value.
Our little family had the best time ever staying at the cabin. The views surrounding were unreal, and the drive through the national park was the best views ever. It's such a good location to the golden circle. We made the most of the views each day travelling to Keflavik and Reykjavik in our hire car. The cabin was cosy and the children loved it here. The owners were so helpful and really made our stay welcome. Iceland was amazing and so was our stay thank you for making it a holiday to remember ❤️
Great cosy cabin with fantastic views
Lovely cosy cabin in a great location. Great place to bring kids. Loved the hot tub. Klara was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely return.
Cosy, well-equipped cabin with lovely lake and mountain views. Well located to sightsee in the SE
The cabin is also the holiday home for a family with children, so it has lots of extras to please all ages that wouldn't be found in a property set up solely for letting: we enjoyed the waffle maker as well as the hot tub! Trampoline/Playstation/Lego etc.
We had a great time: the location is superb for visiting all the main sights in the SE region of Iceland most of which are 1/2 hour in various directions. Great for getting to places BEFORE the tour buses! [Its about an hour from Reykjavik]. Friendly owner ensured everything was "as promised on the tin"! Lovely view of the lake after each busy but enjoyable day.
Thank you for your kind review and thank you for the wonderful airplane that you build out of the Lego. It was really nice to have you and we hope that you will be back.
Lovely Cabin in a great location!
The cabin has all you need for a holiday, nice and warm inside and the hot tub's a great way to relax. Location is great for getting to the popular sights of Gulfoss and Geysir and glacier trips etc. Laugarvatan Fontana is worth a visit and there are a couple of shops in the village also (one open over winter months). This would be a lovely place to come with children, especially during the summer months. The owner is very helpful and quick to respond to any queries.
Very cozy and welcoming!
The owners were very friendly and easy to work with. The cabin is their family vacation home so it has that warm cozy feeling. The cabin has all the necessities and even came stocked with a few provisions. The beds were comfortable and the location very convenient for touring the golden circle area! It is directly on a hot spring so their is plenty of heat, hot water and beautiful sights to see right from the living room! I would recommend this cabin for sure. Even the cozy loft that was clearly built for kids is a cozy spot for adventurous adults!
There isn't any wifi but the owner provides you with a cell phone to open the gate - this proves handy for the Google maps app and contacting the owner if you should need anything at all!
