Iceland and the capital Reykjavik has hotels, guesthouses, hostels and campsites to suit all budgets, from luxurious to simple and satisfactory. Children usually get a discount. Rates correspond to the services offered and the furnishings.
Any place in Iceland offering an overnight stay can be rated according to a classification of 5 groups (group 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5, as well as the assignment of stars). This classification is not an exhaustive assessment of all services available in the respective accommodation, but it is based on more than 100 details. The Icelandic Tourist Board is responsible for this classification. You can recognise participating houses by the blue and red symbol next to the front door, showing the current classification.
As all of our offered summer houses belong to private owners, there is no standardisation in layout and furniture but only personal taste. All summer houses are rented out on request. You will find a huge collection of summer houses in the Southern part of iceland but less in the Western, Northern or Eastern part. Therefore, we recommend an early reservation. Take a look at our summer houses overview or check out our summer houses holiday packages under self drive tours.
In our summer houses overview, we will provide you with information regarding location, furniture and useful tipps for sightseeing. Our summer house Birta í Lyni I (new luxury house for up to 7 people) or the summer house Birta í Leyni II (new luxury house for up to 8 people) offer the optimal location for day trips to Iceland`s most popular sights.
The biggest selection of hotels can be found in the capital Reykjavik. The selection reaches from simple hotels to comfortable 4-star-luxury hotels. In other words, there is a suitable accomodotion for everyone. Most of the bigger villages outside of Reykjavik also offer middel-class hotels, but mostly no 4-star-hotels.
Here, you can find a small collection of our hotels and accomodations. Or would you rather prefer a city trip to Reykjavik?
EDDA HotelsThe EDDA hotels are 16 boarding schools, found throughout the country and used as summer hotels during the school holidays. The rooms usually contain two separate beds and have a washbasin. The shower and toilet are located on the same floor. Some hotels also offer rooms with a shower and toilet.
Guesthouses / Bed & Breakfasts
Guesthouses are often small privately managed businesses offering simple accommodation with breakfast. Usually there is a washbasin in the room, and the bathroom is shared by several guests. Guests can enjoy the family atmosphere provided by their Icelandic hosts.
Farms / Inns
More than 100 farms belong to the association “Icelandic Farm Holiday”, offering a very wide range of accommodation: rooms with made-up beds (bed & breakfast), sleeping bag accommodation, holiday homes, summer houses and campsites. Apart from overnight accommodation they may also offer a broad range of leisure activities, including horse-riding, fishing, sailing, hunting, glacier tours, sheep and/or horse driving, as well as swimming and bathing.
Youth Hostels and family hostels
Iceland has 30 youth hostels and family hostels which are open to people of all ages. They offer inexpensive accommodation in clean and comfortable premises, where you are responsible for your own board, thus allowing you to keep travel costs down. All youth hostels have kitchens that can be used by guests, and bed linen and breakfast may be booked for an additional charge.
Around 100 campsites, maintained from June to the end of August or mid September according to their location, are available around the island. Depending on the furnishings, rates range from £5 to £10 per person per night depending on services available at each site. Tourists are advised to use only official campsites, if they are available. Otherwise it is possible for individual travellers to camp elsewhere, but of course only with the agreement of the land owner or their representative.
