Saudanes Guesthouse is ideally located for Ring Road travelers who want to stay somewhere convenient but quiet. It’s only a few miles from the nearest town, but its farm surroundings mean it’s remote and rural. The crisp, clean decor and comfortable beds make this guesthouse a fantastic choice.

Location & Nearby

Saudanes Guesthouse is in Southeast Iceland, around 280 miles (450 kilometers) east of Reykjavik. It’s just 5 miles (8 kilometers) from the town of Hofn, but it’s set on a rural farm so is away from the noise of busy settlements. The farm and guesthouse are surrounded by beautiful greenery, with views of mountains and glaciers. The property is also very close to the Atlantic Coast, and the Ring Road is less than 1 mile (about 1.4 kilometers) away.

The closest town, Hofn, is an old fishing village whose name literally means “harbor”. That means you can find excellent seafood restaurants, as well as grocery stores and other amenities. It’s worth visiting Osland Island, which is connected to the mainland by a path — it’s great for birdwatching. Close to Hofn, you can visit a Viking village movie set; it was never actually used in a movie, but it’s very interesting to see!

Also close to the guesthouse is the incredible Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon. This is only 50 miles (80 kilometers) from the farm, so it’s easy to take a day trip to this spectacular place. From here, you can explore other parts of Vatnajokull National Park too.

Vestrahorn mountain on the Stokksnes Peninsula is also close to the guesthouse. This lovely natural place, just 7.5 miles (12 kilometers) from Saudanes, is very beautiful — it’s popular with photographers, as it’s usually got fewer tourists than more famous Icelandic sights.

Facilities & Amenities

Saudanes Guesthouse is made up of seven guest rooms, split over a two-floor house. The structure looks like a traditional farm building, but the inside has been renovated to a high standard. The decor is simple but striking, with a crisp white finish and pops of pastel color throughout. The property is cozy, quiet, and very comfortable.

There are twin and double rooms available, but it’s also possible to rent out the entire house if you’re traveling in a large group. Some rooms have balconies with lovely views — the surroundings are truly stunning, and it’s possible to see over to the Vatnajokull glacier on a clear day.

Guests at this property have access to shared bathroom facilities, as well as a shared lounge and a well-equipped kitchen. Breakfast is included in the price of your stay, and bed linen and towels are included.

The friendly hosts at Saudanes will be on hand during your stay to answer any questions about what to do in the local area. They can even help you organize activities such as hiking, trekking, horseriding, and fishing. There are also guided tours of the best photography destinations in the area. With free parking and free Wi-Fi throughout, Saudanes Guesthouse has everything you need for a relaxing and enjoyable stay.
