Retro and cozy cottage by a salmon river w/sauna. Beautiful surroundings!

Located in: Borgarnes »
Sólvangur lodge is in the heart of the West Iceland. It is a perfect base for your vacation and to experience the peaceful Icelandic country side. It is an old fishing lodge/cottage that has housed salmon fishermen on the river Langá for over forty years. Built on the riverbank it gives a feeling of the river running through the house. You can hear the tranquil sound of Icelandic freshwater from your bedroom or you can sit out on the deck and enjoy the view and soak up its natural beauty. In the summer time you can watch fly fishermen catch fresh Icelandic salmon from the living room window, as Langá is one of Iceland´s top salmon rivers. A permit is required to fish in the river. It is possible to purchase a permit from the Reykjavik angling club. You can also purchase online at

During winter you can experience breathtaking northern lights right from the porch. The lodge, built in 1976, is equipped with all necessities i.e. a fully equipped kitchen including a dishwasher, microwave, traditional oven, double fridge, flat screen, washing machine and an outdoor grill. In the lodge there is also a sauna that fits four people, a great way to relax after a day of sightseeing.

There is room for up to 10 guests in five bedrooms. Four rooms with two single beds and one room with a bunk bed. The lodge has two bathrooms, each equipped with a shower. There are plenty of fun activities for children on the property such as a swing set, sand box, play house, trampoline, a field to play soccer and chipping green for golf enthusiast. Guests can also go for walks along the river and enjoy the quiet nature. Wifi is available for purchase.

Do to the remote location of the lodge, hot water is produced on site in a special water heating system. Even though there is enough hot water for a long stay, we recommend using hot water with care when showering or when washing dishes in the sink.

The lodge is only about a 10 min. drive from the main road and from there you access all the magic that Iceland has to offer. In the local town Borgarnes you have grocery stores, shops, a swimming pool, petrol stations, a bank, cafés, nice restaurants and the settlement center which is devoted to recreating Iceland’s earliest days and introduces visitors to one of the best-known heroes of the Icelandic Sagas, Egill Skalla-Grimsson. Experience the many wonders of west Iceland such as Deildartunguhver thermal spring, Krauma geothermal bath, the historical settlement Reykholt and you can of course travel to the center of the earth at Snæfellsjökull national park.
