Location & Nearby
Lambalaekur is located in the rural bliss of west Iceland, surrounded by farmland with few other buildings or signs of infrastructure around. This provides it with a tranquil sense of isolation, but even so, Borgarnes can be driven to in five minutes, where amenities such as grocery stores and pharmacies can be found.
Furthermore, Borgarnes is home to one of the country’s most popular museums, the Settlement Centre, and is a wonderful place to take a stroll along the stunning coast.
Those staying at Lambalaekur will find it a fantastic base from which to explore the further sites of west Iceland. In just 40 minutes, 50 minutes and slightly over an hour, it is possible to reach the historical village of Reykholt, the contrasting twin waterfalls of Hraunfossar and Barnafoss, and the highest flowing hot spring in Europe Deildartunghver respectively. At the latter, you can also find a geothermal spa, Krauma.
Furthermore, it is easy to explore the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, nicknamed Iceland in Miniature, in a single day from the Lambalaekur Guesthouse; its closest site can be reached in less than an hour, and its furthest in less than two.
