Amazing visit to Glaðheimar

It was so nice. The host is amazing. We stayed in a nice cabin with a hot tub 🙂

Beautiful surroundings and the cabin had an amazing WiFi connection. Like, super fast! 5G connection. We just can't complain about anything!

We are definitely coming back. Soon!



Very relaxing

Very relaxing and quite a place to stay. Located in the center of town, so everything is within walking distance.

Large commune room that I was able to work in and have a little meeting in. Very helpful and lovely host.



Beautiful wood hotel

The main house where we stayed was beautiful, everything looked new and built with wood. It looked amazing.

Great beds, location, and friendly staff. Will come again anytime.

One last thing, great supermarket and at least two good restaurants around.
