Stykkishólmur is only a two hours drive from Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland.    Take the "ring road" or route 1 out of Reykjavik to the west towards Borgarnes. Entering Borgarnes you will start seeing road signs with Stykkishólmur whom you follow for 96 km.  Coming from the south we recommend that you stop at Vatnaleið, which is a beautiful scenic spot 20 minutes before you reach Stykkishólmur.  Once you´re on the road again you drive until you hit crossroads where you turn right and drive for 9 km where you will find yourself at the centre of Stykkisholmur.  Turn right on Laufásvegur and you will find us on your right hand.


Please drive carefully and always check weather conditions before you travel especially during the winter time. Icelandic weather conditions can be extreme and it can change very quickly. Prepare a safe journey by checking with the website Safe Travel.
