Arrival at Ytra Lón, your studio is available from 4 pm. Get yourself settled and enjoy dinner in Ytra Lóns restaurant. Choose our lamb or fresh trout from our lake.
After a nutritious breakfast, a family member will escort you to the stables where lambing is in full swing. Mornings are usually busy on the farm so you’re introduced to the staff and are welcome to follow along and watch what is being done. Depending on how many ewes are having their lambs or how busy the night shift has been. Someone will explain to you what is going on and why and how things operate at this busiest time of the year.
Sheep are fed, lambs are born, lambs are tagged, ewe and their lamb are moved out. Maybe you can even see the dogs at work.
Around 12 pm we take a break and you can eat your own lunch in the comfort of your studio.
After lunch, it’s time to move ewe with two days old lamb to a communal space. Follow along while this is done and even help out a bit.
Around 4 pm it’s time to prepare dinner, together with one of your hosts you will prepare a traditional Icelandic meal with products of the farm. How grateful the hard-working farmers will be to have dinner with you and taste the meal you just prepared.
You have another delicious breakfast, just swing by in the stables to say goodbye to all lambs and their moms and you’re on your way to your next adventure.
Or you decide to book a few more nights at the farm to explore its environment. Plenty to see for a couple more day tours around Langanes peninsula.
Don’t miss out
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.
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. ‘’
