North Aurora Guesthouse

North Aurora Guesthosue is a family-run guesthouse where we offer you cosy accommodation with beautiful views, delicious homecooked meals, and authentic Icelandic hospitality. North Aurora Guesthosue is located in the middel of the Dimond Circle, in Laugar a small village with a population of 150 people, located in a valley that is beautiful and with peaceful surroundings.

North Aurora Guesthhosue was build in 2005 by us, Jón Friðrik and Bryndís. Jón Friðrik is a bricklayer by profession. It was build as a house for our family at first - but in the years our 6 children ( 3 boys and 3 girls ) have moved away form home for studies and adventure travel. We found it ideal to start a guesthosue in 2014 and to welcome the whole world into our house and learn about the cultures our guests come from. The location, close to Aurora Observatory at Kárhóll, was the insparation to the name North Aurora.

I can't say enough great things about Bryndís and her beautiful guest house. The rooms are clean and cozy, the amenities and breakfast are organic and outstanding, and as a host Bryndís is an amazing person and source for information. She's also enthusiastic to tell you about the history of Iceland's elves, a widely held belief and fascinating way the country's people have found a connection to nature. We also saw a stunning display of northern lights right outside the door! This isn't your average accommodation. It feels like Bryndís created this guesthouse as a way to connect with travelers and help them have amazing trips through the north, with money being the last of her concerns. Truly a special place that I hope to return to someday.

Everything about the North Aurora is first class. Welcoming and very friendly owners (we felt like old friends immediately), quiet and comfortable, beds extremely comfortable – easy to fall asleep, breakfast has a good variety of fresh foods many locally produced, grounds are lovely – the owners have a good eye for design.
