The guesthouse is about a quarter mile (roughly 400 meters) from Route 1, so it’s easy for visitors to explore the best attractions in the region.
The town of Borgarnes has plenty of amenities. In addition to a swimming pool and a fascinating museum on Icelandic settlers, there are grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, and cafes. All are within walking distance of the guesthouse.
Borgarnes sits on the edge of the Borgarfjordur fjord, so there are gorgeous views of the fjord and the ocean from the town. There are also excellent hiking routes nearby. Guests can easily visit the Nordura river and the Glanni waterfall, 18 miles (roughly 30 kilometers) from the property.
The town’s Ring Road location means guests can also reach the Snaefellsnes peninsula, known to locals as “Iceland in miniature.” The peninsula, around 40 miles (approximately 60 kilometers) from the guesthouse, is home to beautiful natural sights such as the Eldborg crater and Snaefellsjokull National Park.
