One of the many incredible stops around the Golden Circle, Kerio Crater
The hotel is an eco-friendly hotel on the south island that offers 14 regular hotel rooms, guesthouse rooms, 5 chalets, and 2 cottages. We were able to stay in a cute chalet (room 5) that was a cute little cabin, it almost felt like we were glamping. It has all the necessities you need: TV, 2 beds, heater, shower/bathroom, a little small kitchen table and wifi. It was a sweet and simple set-up that had that rustic, camping feel with enough privacy.
We certainly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Fljotshlid with all of its rustic charm surrounded by Iceland’s pristine beauty.
On this trip we stayed in the chalets which was like your own cozy cabin with private bathroom, TV, and free wifi. If you fancy a more private stay, I think you’ll like the chalet as it is a bit of a way beyond the guesthouse and hotel. It’s the perfect way to experience countryside living comfortably.
We really enjoyed our morning lake view that you can see right outside the window. A few chickens and horses might pass you by too!
Breakfast was a very nice spread in a large dining room with lots of seating available.
Breakfast was delicious Kaffitar coffee from Reykjavik. Fish oil shots. Granola and oats from the farm. Cheese and milk from the farm as well. There was home baked bread, an assortment of cold cuts, cheese, pastries, skyr and other dairy products, juices, fresh fruits and vegetables.
The best part was that so many items were fresh and homemade such as their own skyre yogurt with fruit in cute jars – yum! They also had different homemade marmalades, it just made our stay feel that much more homey and cozy.
What’s so great about the place is their emphasis on being sustainable and everything served at the restaurant is fresh from the farm!
The next day, we were on our merry way to visit more epic waterfalls including the one above – Skogafoss waterfall!
