Opened in 2017 near Hornafjordur, this hospitable family-owned and run guesthouse enjoys an optimal location in southeast Iceland where Vatnajokull, Europe’s largest glacier, dominates the landscape. It is centrally located for easy access to the many spectacular sights along the south coast, including Vatnajokull National Park and the glacier lagoons. Two separate single-story buildings—one classic and one contemporary—house 26 guestrooms, all flooded with bountiful natural light and surrounded by wild mountain scenery and farmland. Decor embraces a minimalist Nordic aesthetic, with clean, contemporary lines, spare (yet eminently comfortable) furnishings, and a pale neutral palette with plenty of light wood. Rooms have single beds and European duvets for each guest, and two can be pushed together to form one king-size bed. Bedside tables have reading lamps, and each room has a writing desk, clothing rack, luggage stand and blackout curtains. All have en suite bathrooms with private toilet, shower and hair dryer. Free Wi-Fi- is available throughout the property. A lavish buffet breakfast is served each morning, while in the evenings, the restaurant serves dinner featuring Icelandic fare with a modern twist, including such specialties as traditional fish stew, fresh-caught local cod, smoked lamb and skyr cheesecake.
