Húsey HI Hostel

One building a farmhouse and the other a hostel, this is the perfect place to experience the pace of Icelandic farm life and nature. Having welcomed hostel guests for decades, Húsey HI hostel is a splash of colour in the unspoilt landscape of the East Fjords. With seals, birds and reindeer calling this place their home, even the drive up the road is picturesque. Enquire about the horseriding tours offered. During summer, soak in the rays in the sunroom and during winter watch the Northern Lights dance over the sky.

In the area:

  • Horse riding tours are offered for both experienced and inexperienced riders- either taking you along the glacier river or along the shore to spot seals. See the website for more details and booking. 
  • A great base for attractions along the East Fjords, including Borgarfjörður, Stórurð and Jökuldalur.
  • A short drive the road you can find a recently reconstructed Viking Turf Church.

Things to note:
Expect a limited WiFi connection but plenty of peaceful quality time to enjoy endless days of nature.
