Located in central Saudarkrokur in North Iceland, Mikligardur Guesthouse is an excellent option for those who enjoy a friendly, hostel-style atmosphere but like having the privacy of a twin or triple room. Anyone looking to get slightly off the beaten track to enjoy a unique lodging experience should not hesitate to book this accommodation.
Location & Nearby
Mikligardur Guesthouse is on the waterfront of Saudarkrokur, a beautiful town in North Iceland, 74 miles (119 kilometers) from Akureyri. The settlement overlooks one of the region’s least traveled but most beautiful fjords, Skagafjordur. Grocery stores, shops, cafes, restaurants, and bars are all right on your doorstep, and the Saudarkrokur public swimming pool is five minutes by foot.
Another short walk will take you to 1238 The Battle of Iceland museum, which offers an immersive experience. Transport yourself back to Iceland’s only civil war with an insightful virtual reality tour and enjoy the informative exhibition. Few are aware of this tumultuous time in the country’s history when those striving to maintain an independent commonwealth lost to those willing to bend to the Norwegian crown.
Saudakrokur also offers a lot to nature lovers, particularly considering its adjacent black sand beach, perfect for enjoying by foot or on horseback. You can also enjoy the hike to the Utsynisstadur yfir Saudarkrok viewpoint.
Just south of Saudarkrokur, Lake Ashildarholtsvatn is another notable place of beauty that travelers won’t want to miss.
The beautiful mountain destination of Tindastoll is not far away from Saudarkrokur and Mikligardur Guesthouse. Try a picturesque hike in the summertime, or enjoy the thrills of snow sports in winter. The ski resort is only 10.5 miles (17 km) away from Saudarkrokur.
The accommodation is off the Ring Road of Iceland, far enough to avoid the significant tourist crowds but close enough to use it as a stopping point when encircling the country.
