We will pick you up by car from Hólmavík.

Of course you could also get to Laugarholt on your own, for instance by a hired car.

If you are travelling by car, follow the route number 1 from Reykjavík heading north, then take route number 60 (Vestfjarðavegur) and 61 (Djúpvegur) all the way to Hólmavík. Next take route number 61 (Djúpvegur) over the Steingrímsfjarðarheiði plateau and then turn right onto the unsealed road 635 (Snæfjallastrandarvegur). After about 17 km please turn right directly behind the abandoned farm Melgraseyri onto the road number 638 (there is Laugarás and Laugaland on the signpost). After crossing a mountain ridge you will see the valley Skjaldfannadalur and our farm infront of you.

These directions are just for your rough guidance. Please plan your journey in detail with the use of an updated road map of Iceland.
