Yes please, how do we get from the airport to this hotel, is it far
can we reach the Blue Lagoon from here?
Hello, I think the best way to get to this hotel is to hire a car. It also makes it easier to visit the other places of interest. The Blue Lagoon isn't too far. The lagoon is quite close to the airport & Gullfoss is in the opposite direction.
You could try emailing the hotel for any suggestions. They are very helpful. Good luck & enjoy your trip. It's an amazing place!
We drove from Reykavik on Hwy 1 to just before Selfoss, where you turn left onto Hwy 35.
You follow 35 all the way to Gullfoss hotel which is 5 minutes before Gullfoss Falls. We did not rush and it took us under 2 hours from Selfoss, You pass by Geyser.
If you go too far you end up at the Falls.
It is a long white building on its own down in a field on the right also signed as Brattholt, which is the valley name we think.
It is also possible to join onto 35 from Hwys 37 and 30 if you are not coming direct as we did.
Blue lagoon is much closer to Keflavik airport than Hotel Gulfoss. And yes best way to get to Hotel Gulfoss is to rent a car from the airport since its way out there. You could look into certain Golden Circle tours who possibly can pick you up and take you around that area dropping you at the end at Hotel Gulfoss (Gulfoss falls in the Golden Circle). But then you will need to figure out the return journey :)
Like the above comment, the hotel is around 150KM from airport. You can either take a bus or rent a car. Orange Car rental was great to rent from that being said. If you are flying into Keflavik, you can easily go to the Blue Lagoon it is maybe 50 min. drive at most. The best way to do this is we stayed at the Hotel Geo in Grindvik on our last night. They provide a shuttle to and from the Blue Lagoon and are more than accommodating when making arrangements to visit the Lagoon. I m pretty sure they also provide airport shuttles as well. They are only about 10 min. at most from the lagoon. The Hotel gulfoss is definitely a longer drive from the airport and is out of the way if you are going to the lagoon.
