Here you will find the answers to the most important questions about your stay with us

  • Can we check in anytime?
    Unfortunately no, as we are a privately run lodge and not a hotel. We ask you to let us know on the day of your arrival when you will arrive so that we can plan our day. You are welcome to send us a message via or call us on +354 857 15 89. There is no manned reception, so we count on your cooperation.
  • Are we allowed to check in earlier? (before 5 p.m.)
    No, sorry. Since we need time between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. to get the rooms ready for the next guests. Since we also have a property of 416 hectares to farm in addition to the guest business, it is not possible for us to be at home at all times. For these reasons, we thank you for your understanding and for respecting our privacy.
  • Are we allowed to check in later? (after 9 p.m.)
    Unfortunately no. Please understand that we would like to keep the night's rest from 10 p.m. We also ask you to behave respectfully towards the other guests who are in the accommodation. For this reason, we cannot allow cooking and showering after 10 p.m. Thank you for observing the nightly quiet times. The check-in times also apply to the Tiny Houses. Exceptions to this are rest periods, cooking and showering, since you have an entire house to yourself and there are no other guests in the house. We ask you to behave accordingly and limit loud music or the like to room volume.
  • Do you offer laundry service?
    Unfortunately no. We need the washing machine for our guest business. You can do laundry at Camping Atlavik or at Tehusid in Egilsstadir.
