Gljásteinn is a family-run company specialising in tourism. The family of Gljásteinn emphasises on a truly authentic atmosphere and personalised service. The wonderful facilities are situated in a unique environment and reasonably priced.
It is run by Vilborg Guðmundsdóttir along with her husband Loftur Jónasson and their family. Loftur was born and raised in Gljásteinn with his 16 siblings. Vilborg visited Gljásteinn as a child an fell in love with the nature and the domestic animals, and Loftur! Their two sons, Gústaf and Ólafur Bjarni, along with their daughter in law, Jónína Lóa and their grandchildren, share the work and help each other with all that is needed to run a family farm and tourist service.
Gljásteinn offers accommodation in four wonderful mountain cabins and huts, from Gullfoss waterfall to the geothermal area Geysir and in the highland area Kjölur. The cabins are fantastic lodgings for smaller or larger groups in these popular areas. Kjölur is natural treasure that offers various hiking trails and beautiful horse paths.
Myrkholt has a horse rental and we offer our guests a chance to interact with our domestic animals. Myrkholt contains a wool workshop, cafeteria and toilet facilities.
Café Árbúðir is open the same time as the mountain road Kjölur is opened in springtime. It offers food and beverages, wool products and other necessities.
You are most welcome to join us at Gljásteinn!
