Hey Iceland

Hey Iceland is an award-winning, leading expert in travel in the Icelandic countryside with over 30 years of experience.

We offer a wide range of self-drive packages, guided tours and day tours all year round in addition to a vast network of comfortable accommodation in scenic locations - over 170 carefully selected bed and breakfasts, country hotels, self-catering cottages, apartments, and traditional farm stays all around Iceland.

The Hey Iceland Association was founded by farmers in 1980 and the travel agency by the same name is still majority-owned by the farmers themselves, meaning that profits stay local.

Hey Iceland is committed to sustainable tourism.

Laxness Museum

Gljufrasteinn was the home and workplace of the Nobel Prize winner, author Halldor Kiljan Laxness and his family for over 50 years.

The house which was built in 1945 is a good example of a 20th century Icelandic cultural home and has remained unchanged since the writer lived there.

Gljufrasteinn is now a museum with audio-guides in Icelandic, English, Swedish and German. There is a souvenir shop and multimedia show in the reception.

This is a perfect resting place en-route to West Iceland or to Thingvellir.

There are music recitals every Sunday during summer. Readings of Icelandic authors on the weekends in December.

West Iceland
