We just completed the Golden Circle on a very rainy dreary day. Kind of a bummer. Then we checked into the Hotel Grimsborger and were pleasantly surprised by our accommodations. The outside is nothing fancy but the rooms are very nice. We soaked in the...More
Unique property in a beautiful setting, peaceful and quiet area. The property consists of several multi-unit buildings along with a number of single family homes for rent. Our room was on the small side but was clean and well equipped with a refrigerator, desk and...More
This is a great location! We took day trips in all different directions and nothing was more than a couple hours away . We had a two bedroom apt with our own hot tub. The restaurant and check in are all with in walking distance...More
Can’t beat the location for touring golden circle. Friendly hotel service - choppy restaurant service. Rooms are actually cottages (reminded me of Texas dude ranches). Poor drainage in shower. Comfortable beds. Quiet country location. Pretentious “continental” type dinner -‘would skip dinner here and eat in...More

The hotel is located in the countryside, 10 minutes from Selfoss the closest town. It is on the golden circle route so there are many activities and things to see and do around the area. You can do the golden circle one day or even do part of it in one day and the other half on another day because there are many small stops and interesting things to do.
You can also go to the south coast on one of the days.
There is an outdoor swimming pool in selfoss which is only 10 minutes drive from us, and also other pools in all of the towns around us, as well as natural pools such as: Secret Lagoon and Fontana Spa (in Fontana Spa they also bake rye bread in the ground in the natural hot springs around them and you can join a short tour to see how they bake and taste it)
You can do horse riding on one of the farms in the area, which can be great fun for both children and adults.
Hveragerði is a town about 20 minute drive from here, where there are a lot of hot spring around and inside the town, there are green houses there (Where they even grow bananas!) and also a hot river which you can hike up to and bathe in the natural hot river. It takes about 1 hour to hike up to the river, but the accesibility depends on the weather when you are here. If you are coming now in the winter months it might be more complicated to access the path up the mountain to the river.
Snow mobiling - you can do snow mobiling from Gullfoss waterfall. There can be two persons on each snowmobile so you could take the children with you or you can pay a little extra to have one of the children to go with one of the guides if you prefer.
There are even more things you can do around here so if you have anything specific in mind, please do not hesitate to contact us via e-mail.
