About us

Farmlife & retreat

Hi, we’re Mirjam and Sverrir and we’re lucky enough to live in one of the purest places on earth, Iceland. Welcome to Ytra Lón retreat and farm!

Ytra Lón is in an area known for its birdlife and quiet, Langanes, in the far North East of the country. In the winter it’s blanketed with snow, in the spring it’s teeming with birds and in the summer it’s covered with flowers.

You can be sure of a warm welcome when you arrive and great service and a stunning natural environment while you’re here. What’s more, you’ll leave feeling completely refreshed.

At Ytra Lón you can take tours of the local area, stay in our studios and enjoy a restful retreat.


What our guests say


‘’Langanes is a very special region of Iceland. It is not on the map of the average tourist looking to check Iceland off her bucket list. People who come to this far-flung outpost have specific interests and goals - birds, quietude, a sense of isolation, wide open spaces, interest in local history.

Ytra Lón comes as a surprise. It is a working farm. The rooms are large, fitted with a mini kitchen and fridge, and tastefully furnished. To find this level of comfort in such a remote location is a blessing.

Highly recommended.’’

Perfect oasis of peace

‘’I really enjoyed my time in this charming place when staying in a spacious studio apartment. I appreciated a peaceful environment, liked my evening stroll along the river and a nice talk with my hosts. I even had a chance to explore their farm, meet horses and watch the sheepdog training.

I recommend joining one of the Langanes tours organized from Ytra Lón. It was amazing to listen to the stories of local farmers, discover more about Icelanders in general and on top of that admire a huge colony of gannets nesting on cliffs in Skoruvíkurbjarg. ‘’

Amazing place to stay!

‘'Wonderful place, lonely and hauntingly beautiful. Delightful studio, comfy bed, amazing set up, welcoming host and delicious food with many homemade delicacies. A place to remember and to recommend without reservation.''

The location

Langanes peninsula

Find solitude at the Arctic Coastway

Ytra Lón Farm & Retreat is situated in the midst of Langanes Peninsula, on the far reaches of one of Iceland’s most remote corners. As far as one can get from Iceland‘s capital.

The peninsula stretches for 40km into the ocean and culminates with Fontur at its very tip. Popular with bird watchers, hikers, and seekers of solitude, Langanes boasts the third largest gannet nesting site in the world. It is also here that thousands of kittiwakes, puffins, and guillemots fly in every year in May and June to breed and congregate along the towering cliffs that make up their summer breeding grounds.

Langanes Peninsula is a wonderful walking country, with spectacular scenery and routes for all abilities. There are hiking trails leading directly out from Ytra Lón, some less than 2 hours, others taking several days.

There is so much to see along the peninsula. Tackle the 719m tall Gunnólfsvíkurfjall, the area’s highest peak. Or climb the “Misty Mountain” or Heiðarfjall, where the remains of an old NATO radar station still stand from the Cold War.

The abandoned village of Skálar, once a prosperous fishing settlement, is worth exploring too. At the peninsula’s tip stands the Fontur lighthouse, dating back to 1910. It provides mariners guidance along the perilous cliffs, where many ships have been wrecked. The Engelskagjá (English Gorge) there commemorates a group of English sailors who died after their ship crashed against the dangerous rocks.

Most important of all, here you experience wild nature, with the birds, foxes, and lambs, With Trolls, Elves and Fairies. With an abundance of medicinal plants. With the healing water of the river and the ocean. With the powerful energy of the mountains. Your senses regenerate and expand. Your mind rediscovers natural contentment and peace.
