The space

In complete peace and serenity, the exclusive villa is located near a riverbank, with a beautiful view of the landscape and the river Grenlækur. Including 4 double bedrooms each incl. private bathroom. All rooms are the same and well soundproof. By the villa is a sauna house and a jacuzzi.

Guest access

It is beautifully located within the landscape and perfectly designed for the ultimate experience of Seglbúðir’s magnificent scenery. The facility was built as a fishing retreat so if your clothes get soaked in the rain they will dry off very quickly in the drying room.
Take a walk in the sacred solitude, dip your toes in the river and end the day in the sauna and jacuzzi with an iced drink.

From the living area there is direct access to the terrace, where, if you are lucky, you can watch the aurora borealis dance in the skies during the evening and night. That is of course if you arrive during winter.
During the summer you will most likely see at least one sheep, shy yet curious, strolling around with her two lambs.

Interaction with guests

Check in is at our home, a white house on two floors with a red roof. Take the road from the "Seglbúðir" sign on road 204 and take a left at the postbox marked "Reception"
We will guide you to the lodge from there.
We know the area very well so please don´t hesitate asking us if you need any info about the place or local advise.

Other things to note

We do not serve breakfast nor dinner.
If you're up for cooking we sell lamb directly from us, just let us know at least one day before so we can prepare it.

The next supermarket is at Kirkjubæjarklaustur, 10 km away from us.

We recommend the restaurant at Icelandair Hotel Klaustur at Kirkjubæjarklaustur, we especially recommend their lamb which is prepared at our slaughterhouse here in Seglbúðir. It offers both breakfast and dinner.

A lovely spacious villa in a very secluded location. The villa is very well equipped and we enjoyed using the outdoor spa and sauna. The location was picturesque and so relaxing, we slept very well. Because we were out of town we decided to cook which meant we were able to maximise our time at the villa. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.

We loved this beautiful lodge. It was about 10 minutes from the little town and the lava fields and nearby river were gorgeous. We enjoyed the hot tub and sauna each night. The kitchen is well stocked and the shared living areas were cozy. It was a lovely visit!

This place is great. Usually the place is smaller than the pictures make it out to be, but this place was actually bigger than expected. The hot tub and sauna were great and the location was beautiful. We were there in the winter and the scenery is amazing. Only wish we had more time to relax at the house, but we had to get going and see all the beauty Iceland had to offer.

My Dad and I had a great experience at the house! Secluded location and ultra peaceful. The jacuzzi and sauna were an added bonus. Would definitely try to stay there again and bring others as well. Thanks again!

The lodge was fantastic - clean, fresh, and cozy. The room itself was nice and the living area was great to share with other guests. Þórunn was incredible and took the time to talk with us about the local landscape and history. Would recommend to anyone as a value and a very nice place to stay!

The place was the perfect oasis for our trip to the south. Didn't get to spend much time there but were happy with the stay! Nice that each room can be locked and has its own bathroom. The shower head was a bit broken but got the job done. Check in was seamless. Wish the night was clear because it would be the most perfect place to see the northern lights. Would definitely stay again!

For over 20 years I have been living with my husband at farm Seglbúðir which is a paradise for nature lovers. We built the villa in the year 2000 and have been welcoming fishermen and tourists to stay there ever since. On the farm we have around 250 sheep, 20 horses and a small…
