Description

Eidar Hostel & Apartments is a guesthouse located in the village of Eidar, in the East Iceland region. The hostel offers comfortable family rooms and accessibility to various attractions to make your Iceland trip memorable.

Location & Nearby

Eidar Hostel & Apartments is situated in Eidar, about 0.2 miles (0.3 kilometers) from the center of the village. It’s also 30 miles (48.3 kilometers) from Hengifoss, one of Iceland’s highest waterfalls.

The hostel stands on 700 acres of land and was a school before being converted into a small hotel. The structure was built in the 1950s and has undergone extensive renovations to become a hostel.

Today, Eidar Hostel is an appealing choice for travelers for its location. The place is peaceful, with forests and mountains surrounding the hostel. The area has become a perfect spot for hikers and those who wish to explore the wilderness.

Eidar Hostel also offers different outdoor activities. The Stafdalur Ski Station is about 11.8 miles (19 kilometers) from the hostel, where guests can go for some skiing adventures.

If you stay during summer, you can take the family to a picnic at Sigfusarlundur park. Located about 7.3 miles (11.7 kilometers) from Eidar, Sigfusarlundur covers an area of 3.8 acres.

Another palace you can visit during summer is the Gufufoss waterfall. Located about 20.2 miles (32.6 kilometers) from Eidar, the Gufufoss is the largest waterfall in Seydisfjordur fjord in East Iceland.

Gufufoss is around 88 feet (27 meters) tall and is one of the more popular fishing spots in the region. Interestingly, Gufufoss means “steam waterfall” because of the heavy mists it creates from the cliffside basin.

Alternatively, you can visit Hengifoss waterfall in the municipality of Fljotsdalshreppur. It measures 420 feet (128 meters) tall, good enough for the third-highest in the country.

If you’re looking to try some of the best dishes in East Iceland, Nielsen Restaurant is an excellent option. Located 8.575 miles (13.8 kilometers) from Eidar, Nielsen was the oldest house in town until it was transformed into a restaurant.

Nielsen Restaurant offers lunch and dinner using fresh and organic local ingredients. Some of the must-try choices include the slow-cooked beef cheek, the hamburger, and the caesar salad.

For excellent coffee in the cold weather, visit Bokakaffi Hlodum. Around 10.4 miles (16.7 kilometers) from Eidar, the cafe offers a cozy place to enjoy coffee and reading books while enjoying the majestic views outside.
