Description

The Stora-Asgeirsa Guesthouse offers a lovely farm stay in the rural landscapes of northwest Iceland for up to seven people. Families and groups of friends or business travelers will find it a fantastic, private escape on their adventures through this beautiful region, particularly considering its on-site hot tub.

Location & Nearby

Located just off the ring road, the Stora-Asgeirsa Guesthouse is excellently positioned for those encircling the country and those immersing themselves in North Iceland's landscapes. Its main appeal comes from the fact it is off the beaten track and the spectacular countryside surrounding it, providing guests with an authentic experience of local rural life.

Despite its remoteness, many hidden gems surround the guesthouse. The striking Kolugljufur canyon is only four miles (6.5 kilometers) south and renowned for the beautiful Kolufoss waters in its depths. The awe-inspiring Borgarvirki volcanic plug, historically used by early Icelandic clans as an impenetrable fortress, is 8.5 miles (14 kilometers) away.

You can find the Vatnsnes Peninsula a little further north, where you can find large seal colonies and the dramatic rock monolith of Hvitserkur. Though folklore says that this was once a troll frozen by the sun, most looking upon it think it looks more like an elephant, dragon, or dinosaur. This feature is 19 miles (31 kilometers) away.

The largest town of the Vatnsnes Peninsula, and the closest major settlement to Stora-Asgeirsa, is slightly nearer, 17 miles (27.5 kilometers) east. Hvammstangi boasts attractions such as the Icelandic Seal Center, where you can learn about the local wildlife, and amenities such as grocery stores, restaurants, and gas stations.

The Stora-Asgeirsa Guesthouse is 114 miles (183 kilometers) from Akureyri, the capital of the north, and 132 miles northeast (213 kilometers) from Reykjavik, the country's capital. As such, ring road travelers can depart from Reykjavik and spend a day or two exploring the west before staying at the accommodation and continuing to the main attractions of North Iceland.

Facilities & Amenities

The Stora-Asgeirsa Guesthouse is perfectly designed for families due to its three bedrooms. One has a double bed, another has three single beds, and the third has two singles for an overall capacity of seven. The kitchen is fully furnished, allowing you to save money and time by self-catering, and the bathroom has a shower and toiletries. In the living room, you will find a television.

The outdoor patio has beautiful views over rivers, farms, and mountains, and the surrounding nature invites you to hike through it. In winter, the guesthouse is thus excellent for enjoying the northern lights, while summer travelers can enjoy the landscapes throughout the night with the light of the midnight sun. Throughout the year, you'll be able to meet the horses and goats that reside around the accommodation.

Furthermore, the Stora-Asgeirsa Guesthouse has a hot tub, perfect for unwinding after a day of travel. The geothermal activity in the area fuels this opulent addition. You will also find a bar indoors.
