Kolkuos Guesthouse in North Iceland is a fantastic place for travelers looking to get away from it all. It’s in a remote and secluded location, on the mouth of a river flowing into a fjord. With superb sea views and cozy, comfortable rooms, the guesthouse is a perfect destination for a relaxing getaway.

Location & Nearby

Kolkuos Guesthouse is located in North Iceland, on the mouth of a river that leads into Skagafjordur fjord. The guesthouse is in a remote area with sweeping views over the river, the sea, and nearby mountains. It’s an incredibly beautiful and peaceful place.

The guesthouse is ideally situated for animal lovers. Spend your days listening to the waves rolling in, or head outside to see what birdlife you can see. Eider ducks, swans, ospreys, and birds of prey are often found in this area, and you might even be lucky enough to spot some seals swimming in the fjord. You can also rent horses nearby or go trout fishing.

Despite its secluded location, it’s pretty easy to reach nearby attractions from Kolkuos Guesthouse. Grafarkirkja church, the oldest church in Iceland, is less than 4 miles (6 kilometers) from the property, and there’s also an unusual museum nearby, dedicated to vintage cars.

There’s a supermarket and a restaurant in the town of Hofsos, about 6 miles (10 kilometers) from the property. You’ll also find a swimming pool here, perfect for a relaxing swim after a busy day of sightseeing.

Another nearby town with good amenities is Saudarkrokur, which is roughly 16 miles (27 kilometers) away. Here, you’ll find a few restaurants, several gas stations and ATMs, and a number of interesting things to do. Pay a visit to the Battle of Iceland Museum for an unusual virtual-reality experience, or take a boat trip out to see puffins.

Facilities & Amenities

Kolkuos Guesthouse is situated within an important historical structure. The building was a trading post at the time of Iceland’s settlement, as its harborside location made it an ideal spot for importing and exporting goods. In 2014, the property was renovated and turned into a guesthouse — but the owners took care to maintain the original appearance of the exterior.

The guesthouse now consists of four double or twin rooms, each of which offers beautiful views over the river, the sea, or the nearby mountains. The rooms are spacious and bright, with comfortable beds and a private bathroom. Bed linens and towels are provided. One of the rooms also has a balcony where guests can really appreciate the panorama. It’s a great place to sit and look for animals in the water, or to watch the sun go down over the sea.

Visitors staying at Kolkuos Guesthouse also have access to a shared kitchen and a shared lounge area, which contains an upright piano. A continental breakfast is provided, and there is free parking available.
