The historic Héraðsskólinn Hostel in Laugarvatn is located in the heart of the Golden Circle. The retreat environment is cozy and comfortable, with an atmosphere of simple elegance. The place is complete with a Fontana, where you can enjoy the healing powers of the geothermal water; soak in a natural pool, relax your muscles in the steam rooms, or for the adventuresome, take a dip in the refreshing lake.
Cozy, comfortable, and affordably elegant, the hostel houses a unique clientele. Young backpackers stay in the sleeping bag dorms, parents and children in family rooms, and couples in private accommodation. The hotel likes to think that it serves as a meeting place for people from all walks of life.
The village of Laugarvatn sits on the shore of a charming lake by the same name. 60 minutes from Reykjavik capital and 90 minutes from Keflavik International Airport, the town is an intersection of natural beauty and historical importance. From here you can take a short trip to Thingvellir, Gullfoss, Geysir and many other natural wonders close by. Northern lights, geothermal baths, hiking, fishing, river rafting - just name it, you'll find it here.
