Guesthouse Holmar is a comfortable, affordable place to stay on the cusp of Iceland’s Eastfjords, located on a beautiful farm. Guests on a Ring Road adventure or exploring the south and east in depth will find it to be an excellent base.
Location & Nearby
Guesthouse Holmar is located almost halfway between the magnificent Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon and dramatic Mount Vestrahorn, the last site of the South Coast sightseeing route and first site of the Eastfjords. It is just 40 minutes from the former and 30 from the latter. As such, guests travelling the Ring Road, which it sits on, will find it a perfect pitstop between these two regions.
The nearest town to Guesthouse Holmar is Hofn, just half-an-hour east. Not only is this a beautiful coastal settlement, but it has all services that a traveller could need such as groceries, gas and cultural attractions.
The guesthouse is located within view of the largest glacier in Europe, Vatnajokull. This spectacular ice cap will form a mystical backdrop to those who wish to embark on one of the hiking routes in the area.
