The Guesthouse Lyngholt is a well-appointed accommodation that stands proudly in the small fishing village of Thorshofn. This spacious and comfortable house is the perfect place to call home for travelers in the Icelandic Northeast.
Location & Nearby
The Guesthouse Lyngholt sits just off the north coast of the Langanes Peninsula in the upper part of Thorshofn village. While the location offers the peace and privacy of being in a small, distant town, you’re never too far from your basic necessities and conveniences.
Thorshofn and its harbor are great for picturesque walks, but it also has the shops, grocery stores, and restaurants you’ll need. You can also find a bank, a gas station, and a health center, while a sports stadium and swimming pool are also available.
Outside the town, there are plenty of eerily beautiful abandoned places to visit, such as the Thorshofn plane wreck near the guesthouse and the old fishing village of Skalar just 25 miles (40 kilometers) north. Driving along the coast, you’ll also find several abandoned farms reclaimed by nature.
Further inland, you can also take this chance to visit Iceland’s longest glacial river canyon, Jokulsargljufur, 70 miles (113 kilometers) away. Dettifoss, Iceland’s most powerful waterfall, is only a short drive away from the river canyon.
Lastly, birdwatching is popular all over the Northeast region, particularly in the summer, and there are birdwatching trails you can follow for the full experience. Whatever your interests, you have several options to choose from during your stay at the guesthouse.
