The Yurt

We have only two yurts (or Ger in Mongolian) on the mountain so you can enjoy the peace and quiet and have space for yourself. The big yurt is about 30m2 and 6 meters or 18 feet across. And is decorated in Mongolian style with woolen carpets and wood stove. We also have a smaller yurt, a bit higher up on the mountain next to the forest (for couples or young families) with a diameter of 5 meters.

Both yurts are equipped with a wood stove so you can get comfortable at the fireplace or make tea/coffee or some Icelandic pancakes. They taste great with some handpicked blueberry´s that grow in the area and can be picked around the yurt from circa August!

From one of our guests (January 2019):

“The location and yurt are fantastic. The toilet house (Ty Bach – little House) was a genuine surprise as it was warm and well thought out. Even though we were staying when the snowstorm had hit and the temperatures were very low we were comfortably warm inside the yurt, it actually got a bit too warm at one point. We were given a large thermos of hot water when we arrived which was a very nice touch as a cup of tea was welcomed after a long drive. Breakfast (provided by the hosts and left for you to make when you wish) was spot on and we loved toasting the homemade bread on the top of the ‘oven’. Thank you and never let this place change/modernise. We WILL be staying here again on return to Iceland. The hosts are amazingly helpful should you need to know anything about the local area and if you want to see real life in a yurt, pop down to visit theirs.”
