If you booked a stay with us in Summer you’ll be lucky for sure to experience the amazing midnight sunsets out of your bed or the hot pool if the weather is good.
Tough Summer also has his side effects ;). There are a lot of flies around waters outside and they also love our glass cabin like everyone else does. You find 2 fly swatters in our Lodge so you can catch these little friends together and have some fun :).
One annoying phenomenon is new in Iceland and these are the Lúsmý. They’re insects and almost transparent and so tiny that you can’t see them properly and they are always outside and also inside houses (mostly in evenings or mornings) near waters and go thru clothes and leave you with dozens of itchy bites. You don’t feel anything when they bite you, only a few hours later you discover the itchy small bites. The best to do after you got attacked by them is getting into the hot tub with at least 42 degrees and soak in there for 5 minutes. It will help to reduce the itchyness.
Also there’s no need for heaters in Summer as it gets quite warm anyway through the sun in the Lodge. Heaters are always off during summertime but of course if you need them you can turn them on, but please put them off again before check-out.
On hot days (for icelandic conditions at least) we recommend to leave the balcony door open while you are in the cabin.
For light sensitive people we recommend taking your eye masks with you to get full darkness at night as the sun never sets during summer. We have blackout curtains available for the side windows but the ceiling has no curtains, means it is still not completely dark.
