The Sydra Skorgugil Guesthouse is an affordable, beautiful guesthouse with five bedrooms on a horse-farm in north Iceland. Those who want to stay in accommodation off the beaten track with stunning mountain views should be sure to read ahead.

Location & Nearby

The Sydra Skordugil Guesthouse is located on a spectacular horse farm surrounded by mountains; riding tours can be embarked on nearby. Within walking distance are two little-known but fascinating cultural attractions; 30 minutes north is Glaumbaer Museum, where you can marvel over historic turf farms from Iceland’s past, and an hour south is Varmahlid, a village that boasts even more of these marvels.

Varmahlid also has services such as gas and groceries; if you don’t fancy the hike, the drive takes less than five minutes.

In spite of its remoteness, there are still plenty of famous sites easily within easy driving distance of the guesthouse. Spectacular coastal towns on the northern fjords, such as Blonduos and Hofsos, can be reached in 40 minutes, for example. The capital of north Iceland, Akureyri, is just over an hour away, from which you can embark on plenty of nature adventures and continue onto sites such as the Lake Myvatn area.

Facilities & Amenities

The Sydra Skordugil Guesthouse is a large, modern, comfortable house with five bedrooms and two bathrooms, both of which have showers and hair dryers. Couples, pairs and solo travellers should look into booking one of the cosy single rooms, which have two single beds that can be pushed together and cover 9 sqm. Family and other large groups will suit the more spacious family rooms, which are 12 sqm and have a double and a bunk bed.

All rooms have magnificent mountain views.

Guests can self-cater in the modern, fully-furnished kitchen, and relax in the living room with its television and small library. Wifi is free throughout the house, and breakfast is provided every morning.

As a final cherry on top, there is a hot tub in the back garden that guests are welcome to bask in. This is a fantastic spot to look out for the aurora borealis in winter. There is also outdoor seating and barbecue facilities.

Anyone travelling to north Iceland, seeking to stay well off the beaten track in affordable accommodation with a hot tub, should not hesitate in booking Sydra Skordugil Guesthouse. Stay on a horse farm surrounded by mountains by checking availability.
