Location & Nearby
The GentleSpace Guesthouse is located on the edge of Isafjordur. Though this settlement is small, it has everything a traveler could need, such as grocery stores, restaurants, tour services, and gas stations. On top of this, it has a swimming pool, a heritage museum, a maritime museum, a golf course, and a spectacular harbor overlooking a breathtaking fjord.
Isafjordur is also well positioned for visiting the sites of the Westfjords. The stunning coastal village of Bolungvarvik, for example, is eight miles (13 kilometers) northeast. Here, you can marvel over some of the country’s best seascapes and learn about the area’s compelling folklore.
Meanwhile, the Arctic Fox Center is 13 miles (21 kilometers) away. Here, you can learn about Iceland’s only native land mammal and even meet some of these curious creatures. By driving 33 miles (53 kilometers), you can reach the mesmerizing waterfall of Dynjandi, which looks like it was pulled from a fairytale.
Driving a little further will take you to even more incredible locations. The cliffs of Latrabjarg, which are home to hundreds of thousands of puffins and millions of other birds in summer, are 113 miles (182 kilometers) southwest. Meanwhile, the Museum of Witchcraft and Sorcery is 139 miles (224 kilometers) southeast, where you can discover how Icelanders practiced magic in centuries past.
Isafjordur is the only place you can take boats to the Hornstrandir Nature Reserve, one of the most remote parts of Iceland. This spectacular place is home to incredible landscapes, with dramatic cliffs, fields of wildflowers, and abundant wildlife. As such, travelers seeking a true escape into the untouched wilderness will find the GentleSpace Guesthouse a great place to stay before and after their adventures in the reserve.
