Description

Gamla Guesthouse is an affordable, welcoming accommodation located in the heart of the Isafjordur in the Icelandic Westfjords. Travelers seeking a home-away-from-home on their adventures around this magnificent region will find no better place to stay!

Location & Nearby

Gamla Guesthouse boasts an enviable position in Isafjordur. Within a few hundred feet, you’ll be able to reach grocery stores, restaurants, and the local swimming pool. The town also has cultural attractions such as a maritime museum and a heritage museum, and spectacular coastal views over the fjord of Isafjardardjup.

From the local harbor at Isafjordur, you can find boat tours, some of which can take you to the incredible Hornstrandir Nature Reserve, the most remote and arguably most beautiful part of the country. Kayaking is also possible from Gamla Guesthouse.

Those renting a car will find it easy to explore the rest of the Westfjords from Isafjordur. The spectacular village of Bolungarvik, for example, is eight miles (13 kilometers) northeast. Not only are the natural views of the mountains and bay beautiful, but there is fascinating folklore here regarding a fearsome battle between a wizard and a witch.

Traveling 13 miles (21 kilometers) in the opposite direction will take you to the Arctic Fox Center. This fascinating museum has live foxes, allowing you to meet and learn about Iceland’s only native land mammal.

These creatures are abundant in the region, meaning you might spot some as you travel. Similarly, you can look out to the seas in the hope of seeing whales, dolphins, and seals, which feed in the bountiful waters.

Because of the size of the Westfjords, it is recommended to spend several days at the Gamla Guesthouse to reach some of the more distant attractions. The waterfall of Dynjandi, which stands at over 330 feet (100 meters) tall, is remarkably breathtaking, tumbling down what appears to be a vast set of stairs. Meanwhile, the cliffs of Latrabjarg are the widest in Europe and home to countless seabirds, including Atlantic puffins, throughout summer.

The Museum of Witchcraft and Sorcery in Holmavik is also a significant attraction, allowing you to learn about the history of magic in the region and broader country.

Facilities & Amenities

Gamla Guesthouse features eight double rooms and one triple room, including one double room that is accessible. Each has a sink, two bathrobes, beautiful views, and comfortable furnishings. The rooms are on multiple floors and include a shared bathroom on each floor.

A full menu is also available for dinner, but you can prepare your meals in the fully-furnished kitchen.

The hosts also specialize in business gatherings of up to 20 people.
