Hestasport Cottages Varmahlíð North Iceland

The Hestasport Cottages Varmahlíð North Iceland gay-friendly – or the perfect place to recharge your batteries on a road trip to North Iceland. Our time driving along the North Icelandic coast was full of adventures from whale watching, glacier river rafting, and horseback riding. With Hestasport Cottages, we found gay-friendly accommodation in North Iceland with a private natural hot spring in the center of the houses. You can expect fully equipped wooden houses just on the hilltop in Varmahlíð with comfortable beds, a spectacular view over Icelandic nature, and the option to do Northern Lights Watching out of a hot spring. The cottages are part of Hestasport, who are also offering horseback riding. The Hestasport cottages were wonderful accommodation for us during our 21-days Road Trip once around Iceland, yes, let us just called it the place to stay all year round “to come home” in North Iceland.

Hestasport Cottages – Sleep well around a private hot spring

Tired but satisfied we arrived at our accommodation for one night (or a whole week, if you are planning to stay longer), the Hestasport Cottages. Entering Varmahlíð when coming from Akureyri (the unofficial capital of North Iceland), take a left turn from the gas station and a little further straight ahead. When you see a white building on the left, you are right there for check-in. From there it is just a 5-minute car ride to the cottages.

Cozy & comfortable Cottages in North Iceland

Located on a hill in Varmahlíð (driving back towards the center on the left), the different sized bungalows are arranged around a cozy hot spring. The huge and perfectly equipped cottages offer a warm atmosphere, really nice beds, modern bathrooms, and of course free Wi-Fi. After preparing our dinner, we were sitting for hours in the comfortable living room watching our latest travel photos of our North Icelandic day.

Hestasport Cottages Varmahlíð North Iceland gay-friendly even in Winter

We have been there in Autumn, but after talking to the owners, they recommend spending time for Northern Lights from the hot spring in Winter. Clear, ice-cold air and snow and no bigger light sources around, the Hestasport Cottages seem to be a wonderful choice during your trip through a frozen Iceland. Watching Northern lights out of the hot spring sounds pretty magical. We will definitely come back when visiting Iceland in Winter. So should you.
