Location & Nearby
The closest main towns to the Vogur Country Lodge, Budardalur and Reykholar, are both over an hour away, illustrating the peaceful isolation that the hotel boasts. Surrounding it is expansive farmland, untouched wilderness and beautiful seascapes with countless islands, making it the kind of place that avid hikers and nature lovers can only dream of.

As such, you can explore sites such as Kirkjufell mountain, the Snaefellsjokull glacier, and the Londrangar sea stacks within a day.
Reykholar, meanwhile, which is 80 minutes’ north, is the first town of the Westfjords, a most remote and breathtaking region renowned for its mountains, fjords and abundant wildlife.
