Description

Travelers craving authentic experiences should look no further than Guesthouse Gamli Baer. Expect the best traditional Icelandic hospitality at this rural gem in the West Iceland countryside – a Ring Road detour you will not forget. Sometimes described as the Icelandic Santa, the friendly host will go out of his way to make you feel at home in his old charming farmhouse that's jam-packed with soul.

Location & Nearby

Guesthouse Gamli Baer is located in Husafell, 82 miles (132 kilometers) northeast of Reykjavik. It's well worth the 28-mile (45-kilometer) detour east from the Ring Road at Haugar. Beautiful waterfalls, caves, and hiking trails await exploration in the area. Husafell swimming pool is an 11-minute walk from Guesthouse Gamli Baer. These public geothermal pools feature pools and hot tubs with different temperatures. Take in the incredible mountain views while the tension melts away. Afterward, replenish your energy levels at Husafell Bistro next door. Enjoy warming soups, hearty burgers, pizzas, and salads. The much-loved Barnafoss and Hraunfossar waterfalls are only 3.7 miles (6 kilometers) from the guesthouse. Be mesmerized by the water flowing powerfully through volcanic rock and enjoy the convenience of good paths and viewing platforms. Hraunfossar Restaurant is next to the falls. The lesser-known Hundavadsfoss waterfall is only a 13-minute walk from the guesthouse. Surtshellir lava cave is eight miles (14 kilometers) from Guesthouse Gamli Baer (with a four-wheel drive, it's possible to visit this cave independently). Go prepared with appropriate clothing, footwear, and a headlamp to experience the magnificence of the lava tubes. Vidgelmir cave is a little closer to the guest house. Professional tours allow you to appreciate this magnificent lava tube cave as well!
