Booking Policy

Please note that we can only take a booking through our website if it is made at least two days prior to check in. If there is availability displayed at the last minute, you can email us and we can book you in manually.

Self check-in anytime after 16:00. You get your PIN Code for the door opening one day before your arrival via email. The code is valid until check-out time at 11:00 next day.

Please note that we are not a hotel and this is a non-serviced area.

The Lodge is suitable for a maximum of 2 adults.

There is no breakfast provided in the price. Included in the price is VAT 11%, the tourism tax, free wifi, coffee and tea and basic food supplies (like pasta, rice, sugar, oil…), two towels per person, use of Sauna and hot tub, a fully equipped kitchen and final cleaning of the house and pool.

We do not take any responsibility if the hot tub or Sauna can not be used due to force majeure like heavy storms or volcanic eruptions or very bad weather conditions etc, therefore it is not possible to claim a refund for not being able to use it. The same rule goes for the rooftop windows, in case of heavy snowfall or thin black ice we can’t guarantee a view through the glass ceiling as this is unfortunately completely out of our control. We are trying to remove all the snow while we’re on location if the weather conditions (wind) safely allow it.

In case of a heavy storm in the area (orange or red weather warning on vedur.is) plus the closure of the road 268 and 264 from Selfoss and Hvolsvöllur, we maybe need to cancel a reservation and in this case there will be a full refund. This counts only if the roads to our lodges are closed and no one can access them (meaning they can’t be cleaned), not if there are other road closures in regions outside of south Iceland. We recommend planning ahead, the storms are usually on forecast around 4-5 days ahead of time. It is advised to stay in the surrounding area the night before and after if there is a heavy storm coming up. You may adjust your travel plans and check road conditions beforehand.

Panorama Glass Lodge ehf. is not responsible for the loss or damage of any property left in the Lodges. You have the possibility to pick up your lost/forgotten items up to 7 days after your check-out. After that timeframe we collect all items and bring it to the red cross regularly. We do not have space to store it for a longer time. In case you want to have your lost items shipped, you pay for the postal and packaging fees prior to shipping.

If you cause any damage to the property/lodge (like fire on the terrace, damage of interior, broken windows or rollerblinds etc) we will put you into account of this right after your stay. Thank you for treating our property like you would do it with your home.
