This is a hard one to rate. The facilities are pretty rustic ... The surrounding land is completely awesome and not to be missed ... There are no other close alternatives. That said, we stayed in a little A-frame cabin for four (Nypa 2), which...More
I did the hiking route to the geothermal area and that was stunning !!

We camped at this site so we only used kitchen, restarant and sanitary facilities. Kitchen room was bit old and dirty (users were expected to clean it) so a thick layer of fat had settled on top of the fridge for example.

The F35 is a beautifull road definitely worth your time. But I would suggest you drive through and not stay here. We booked extremely early, but were placed in a some kind of shed up a very steep hill from the main building. The facilities...More
The surrounding is beautiful, yes. But they ask insane price for accommodation. Being charged that, we were placed in a building which is rather construction site with lot of continuous disturbing noise from trucks, drills etc. Room not very cosy. Staff not much communicative. No...More

There are two options for hiking the circle: using the two huts, walk in 3 days, ore tenting. We prefered the huts, you can reservate them at the site from Kerlingjalfjoll (KJF) just send them a mail. The route is poled but we were very happy by using GPS during bad weather. It was hard to find the poles. You need shoes to wade some rivers, this might be dangerous after rainy days because of heavy floating water. You need food for breakfast, lunch and diner from the start till the end! The cabins are basic but beds are good, there is less wood for the stove. First day is about 5 h walking second day 4-5 depending of wading and third day is 8-10 h, depending how slippery the mud is. I can send you the GPS track. At least to learn more about KJF YTube. tonko64 there are videos from each day. (also from other Icelandic hikes).
