Location & Nearby
Hotel Budir is set in one of the most beautiful places in the western region of Iceland, the Snaefellsnes peninsula. This elegant hotel is in a league of its own, boasting all amenities, a charming atmosphere, great service, and a restaurant renowned for its exquisite cuisine.
The hotel is 110 miles (178 kilometers) from Reykjavik. Hotel Budir sits in a lava field on the Snaefellsnes peninsula. Due to the hotel’s location, travelers have an impressive view of the breathtaking Snaefellsjokull glacier and the Budir estuary, which meanders into the vast Faxafloi Bay where a number of seals reside.
Snaefellsjokull is a glacier-capped volcano found on the tip of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula in west Iceland. This glacier-capped volcano stands in a national park of the same name, one of the only three national parks in Iceland. Snaefellsjokull is 14.6 miles (23.5 kilometers) from the hotel.
During winter, travelers can sit cozy by the fireplace, having hot chocolate and watching the northern lights or the aurora borealis. This spectacular show is a unique experience for travelers staying at Hotel Budir.
Hotel Budir lies 0.1 miles (180 meters) from a church where travelers can visit and take pictures with your family and friends. The small wooden church, Budakirkja, is located on the south side of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. The church is known for its beauty, both in the building and in the surrounding area.
Kirkjufell, known as the ‘Church Mountain,’ is a distinctly shaped peak north of Iceland's Snaefellsnes Peninsula. This mountain is called ‘the most photographed mountain in Iceland’ because of its perfect coastal location and beautiful formation. Kirkjufell is located 21.4 miles (34.5 kilometers) from the hotel.
Many geological wonders along the Snaefellsnes Peninsula include the Londrangar basalt cliffs. This incredible rock formation has earned the nickname ‘the rocky castle.’ This natural wonder is located 15.8 miles (25.5 kilometers) from Hotel Budir and is great for birdwatching.
