Calming, clean, comforting and picturesque are the cottages at Hestheimar in Hella. Heating system kept the rooms amply warm. Horseback riding easily available in walking distance. Staff friendly. If desired, breakfast and dinner may be ordered on the property.
Located in a nice and quiet area. Amazing view from room. Room is well equipped with good size bathroom. Bed is nice however the extra bed is too soft (pretty much just mattress on the floor) We booked one bedroom cottage for 3 people and...More

We stayed here twice on our trip to Iceland, the first time was after a day travelling the golden circle before heading on to the waterfalls, the second was on our way back toward the airport. Both times we stayed in their self catering cottages...More
I selected to stay at Hestheimar because it was way outside any nearby city, thus giving the night sky plenty of darkness for Northern Light watching. Luckily one of the evenings, I was in my room and saw the Aurora from my window and was...More

Dear Lynda, thank you for your inquiry. Yes, Hestheimar is located in ca 2 hour´s driving distance from Landmannalaugar, so you and your family could easily do some hiking there and return to Hestheimar in the afternoon or evening. However, you need to know that you can only go to Landmannalaugar from ca 20.6. each year and until Christmas time on a regular car, but if you are driving on a super jeep, then you can go all year round. Please do not hesitate to contact me again, if you would like to book accommodation in Hestheimar or if you need more information. For you and your family I would recommend to book 2 double rooms in the main building or the Guesthouse, but we also offer cottages.Best regards, Lea Helga Ólafsdóttir, owner of Hestheimar, Guesthouse and horse farm.
