Description

Situated between a magnificent coastline and a beautiful range of mountains on a far-flung fjord, Salthus Guesthouse is a fantastic escape for guests to North Iceland. With modern rooms for families, couples, and friends, some of which are accessible, and a kitchen for self-catering, it should be considered by all manner of travelers!

Location and Nearby

The Salthus Guesthouse boasts a spectacular location on the edge of the village of Skagastrond, a remote escape on the Skagi Peninsula of north Iceland. This position allows guests to enjoy authentic local fishing culture, hike along little-known paths, and access basic amenities.

It is only a 20-minute drive from Blonduos, the region’s commercial center, where you can find more shops, restaurants, and traveler services.

In terms of attractions, the fascinating turf village of Glaumbaer is 44 miles (71 kilometers) away, and the Vatnsnes Peninsula is 65 miles (105 kilometers) away. Glaumbaer is a must-see destination for those interested in history, as it allows you to see how Icelanders lived for the millennium before industrialization.

Meanwhile, the Vatnsnes Peninsula is most famous for its many seal colonies and spectacular off-shore rock monolith of Hvitserkur. You can learn about the seals at the Icelandic Seal Center in the local town of Hvammstangi, and when at Hvitserkur, you can marvel over its resemblance to an elephant and photograph the birds nesting on it.

The Capital of North Iceland, Akureyri, is 102 miles (164 kilometers) away, from which you can access a range of adventure tours and sightseeing excursions. The Diamond Circle route is a popular choice, covering Lake Myvatn, the waterfalls of Godafoss and Dettifoss, and the canyon of Asbyrgi. Whale watching, river rafting, and horseback riding are also sought-after activities that are easy to access from the town.

Due to its position to the north, the west, and the Ring Road, Salthus Guesthouse is fantastically positioned for those navigating the whole country.

Facilities and Amenities

The Salthus Guesthouse has a range of rooms that suit the needs of different travelers. Groups of up to four can book one of the four spacious family rooms with sea views and garden access. There are also four double rooms with sea views and three with mountain views, perfect for couples. Pairs of friends can instead get one of three twin rooms, two of which are accessible for wheelchair users.

All rooms have private bathrooms with showers and access to free and fast Wifi, and all guests are welcome to use the fully equipped communal kitchen and cozy living area. Parking is free.

There is a spacious garden area for residents to enjoy. In winter, this is a prime spot for enjoying the northern lights, while in summer, you can relax here under the perpetual light of the midnight sun. Salthus Guesthouse also caters to guests on an artist’s retreat due to its peacefulness and inspiring surroundings.
