The Hvítá River Valley is dotted with a number of excellent guesthouses and country lodges, plus some of the country's more unusual lodgings. As the area is so close to the busy Golden Circle route, it's essential to book ahead for mid-summer.


Most of the villages around the Hvítá River Valley offer at least basic fast food and there are several good restaurants as well. Selfoss is the largest nearby hub for eating and drinking.
