Description

Guesthouse Holmavikur is an affordable, welcoming place to stay in Holmavik, a village immersed in the incredible Westfjords of Iceland. Any visitor to this spectacular part of the region, particularly those on a budget, should be sure to book their stay here as soon as possible.

Location & Nearby

Guesthouse Holmavikur is in the heart of Holmavik and is just a minute’s walk from the town’s greatest attraction, the Museum of Witchcraft and Sorcery. This exhibition is a fascinating place to discover the history of magic in Iceland. You’ll learn about spells, witch trials, and folklore and will even get to see a pair of necropants, trousers made from human skin. Prepare for the macabre before your visit!

The second part of this museum, the Sorcerer’s Cottage, is 16 miles (26 kilometers) away. This cabin was once the authentic old house of a self-proclaimed warlock, and you can find items carved with staves and other evidence of magic.

Holmavik has a small population, with less than 500 inhabitants, but still has places to get groceries and gas. You can also find a small selection of restaurants and a swimming pool.

The Westfjords is one of the most remote, untouched, and spectacular parts of the country, renowned for its incredible coastline, dramatic mountains, and abundant wildlife. From Guesthouse Holmavikur, you will thus be able to reach some of Iceland’s most gorgeous landscapes and views and maybe even see puffins, seals, whales, and arctic foxes.

By driving 36 miles (58 kilometers), you can reach the settlement of Reykholar, renowned for its abundant birdlife, and in 43 miles (70 kilometers), you can get to Djupavik, a stunning village few travelers get to see. The spectacular waterfall of Dynjandi is 122 miles (196 kilometers) away, and the capital of the region, Isafjordur, is 139 miles (224 kilometers) north.

Facilities & Amenities

Guesthouse Holmavikur has double and twin rooms, some with shared bathrooms and others with private facilities. Those that share facilities have basins in the room. All have beautiful views, some looking over the ocean and some over dramatic mountains. The style is simple, cozy, and welcoming.

Your hosts will provide you with linens, towels, and toiletries. Free WiFi is provided to all guests, and you will have access to a free parking space. Furthermore, you are welcome to enjoy a complimentary breakfast with locally sourced ingredients each morning.

The guesthouse has a restaurant and bar to relax in each evening and an outdoor terrace for unwinding beneath the midnight sun. This terrace looks over the beautiful bay, and if you are lucky, you may even see whales, dolphins, seals, and seabirds from here.

From Guesthouse Holmavikur, it is possible to embark on a range of hiking and biking routes. The staff will be happy to tell you about the best places to see in the local area.
