Guesthouse Stöng and Cottage's Mývatn

 Guesthouse is at a quiet location with a great view. 

First knowledge of people making their homes at Stöng is from 1857 and the same family has been living there since 1870. The land is about 13 km from Mývatn, is 1100 ha and even though it lies 320 m above sea level it is well grown and therefore  suitable for traditional farming.  The  tourism began at Stöng 1982 and rooms without private bath are located in the old house who was built 1929.

Drilling for hot water began in 1998 and it became possible to get 3 liters of 60°C hot water per second.

 All houses at Stöng as well as two hot tubs are now heated with this water.


 There is a great view from Sandfell, which is about half an hour walk from Stöng, and in good weather conditions Bárðarbunga in Vatnajökuli  and Hofsjökull can be seen from there.


 Beautiful nature Lake Myvatn.
