Welcome to Háafell
Welcome to Háafell where we raise sheep, keep horses, and have two friendly dogs.
Our private guesthouse, Háafell Lodge, is located 200 meters above the farm, up the mountain at 130 meters above sea level. It is a recently built (2020), 100 square meters, modern “turf house style” house.
Háafell means “The High Mountain” and has a long river that cascades down its side with several tiers of waterfalls. It is a five-minute walk to our canyon and it is possible to take a cold bath in one of the waterfalls! It is an easy walk up along the river to observe the beautiful views as you walk into the mountain behind the house.
Háafell is located at the center of West Iceland about 120 km from Reykjavík. This is a perfect stop for a family or a group of friends to get away from the busy world, relax, and enjoy the quiet.

All the windows in the house, except the bathrooms, have black-out curtains to use during the summer’s bright nights. From both of the bedrooms and living room, you can walk out to the 10 square meter balconies.
Authentic Farm Stay
Háafell Luxury Lodge is located on our farmland but we also run a sheep farm, Háafell Farm.
The sheep from the farm roam free in the mountains during the summer. The horses and the friendly dogs stay near the surroundings of the Farm and we hope they will bring some joy to your stay. We give our guests the privacy they need but we are available if needed.
The lodge stands on a foothill of 130 meters above sea level and offers unprecedented views overlooking the countryside and the sea towards Hvammsfjördur and Breiðafjördur. Guests can enjoy beautiful midnight sunsets on bright summer nights and/or the Northern Lights during the winter.
This accommodation gives you the opportunity to leave the commotion and the hassle of the world behind and enter unprecedented peace and quiet environment in the Icelandic nature in the mountainside.
