When traveling in Iceland, there are so many cool Airbnbs to stay in during your visit, so it can be hard to choose which ones are worth the money. But if you’re going to go all the way to Iceland, you might as well do it in style. So with that said, here are 5 of the most epic Airbnbs in Iceland, from northern light watching in a wooden igloo to a traditional black house. These are the Airbnbs in Iceland worth splurging on!
Located in the middle of the Golden Circle route, this cottage was completed in 2010. It’s only 10 minutes away from Geysir and 20 minutes from Gullfoss. For up to 6 guests maximum. $250/night
Only 10 minutes outside of Akureyi, this apartment gives you a quiet view over the bay. This is one I have stayed at myself, and it is as beautiful as it looks in pictures. The building holds 3 apartments, of which you get the one to the left overlooking the fields (the most private and with the best view, in my opinion). Inside, there is a kitchen, a bedroom, and a loft upstairs with another bed. The apartment holds up to 4 guests. $150/night
This cabin is located on the Snæfellsnes penisula near to the town of Grundarfjordur. Remember the famous photos you always see of a mountain with 3 waterfalls in front of it under the Northern Lights? Well, this Airbnb is right on the side of that mountain, called Kirkjufell. This is another one I’ve stayed at myself, and it was an amazing experience. Bonus: the house has a hot tub and wi-fi! What more could you want? Up to 6 guests can stay in each house (there are two available for rent). $170/night
Located in Borgarnes, this traditional black timber house is the perfect pit stop whether you’re going to or from the Snæfellsnes peninsula. It’s beautiful exterior is outdone by an even more beautiful interior. The house holds up to 4 guests per stay. $295/night
For those looking for a more glamping option, this wooden igloo in Árskógssandur offers 360 degree views of the sky - perfect for Northern Lights viewing. This is a cozier experience for sure, as the igloo only fits up to 2 guests. $140/night
