Hotel Eyvindara is a stunning hotel, immersed in woodlands, just a short drive from the Icelandic town of Egilsstadir. Guests who want to stay in a welcoming room or beautiful log cabin will find it a great base from which to explore the East.
Location & Nearby
Hotel Eyvindara feels like it is miles away from civilisation due to the privacy granted by its surrounding trees; the capital of east Iceland, however, is only a 40-minute walk or five-minute drive away. Here, you can find a wealth of restaurants and shops, as well as unique attractions such as Lake Lagarfljot, which is steeped in folklore.
The hotel’s great location also puts it in close proximity to a geothermal spa named the Vok Baths, which can be reached in ten minutes, and the country’s largest forest, Hallormsstadurskogar, which can be reached in 25.
Most travellers staying at Hotel Eyvindara, however, will be doing so to explore the remote and spectacular Eastfjords. The incredible views, abundant wildlife and cultural sites here can all be accessed with ease; places such as Seydisfjordur, Borgarfjordur Eystri and Djupivogur are just half an hour, an hour, and an hour and a half away respectively.
Facilities & Amenities
Hotel Eyvindara has three choices for accommodation for its guests. Twin or double rooms are available in the main hotel and come with luxurious bedding and private bathrooms with showers. Alternatively, you could book a more spacious annexe room, which comes with a terrace and a seating area. The style of these rooms is modern and bright.
Thirdly, there are log cabins for a more private escape, about 100 metres from the hotel. They come with double rooms, kitchenettes, private bathrooms and outdoor areas, and have a traditional, rustic atmosphere that provides a romantic air.
Free Wifi is available for all guests across Hotel Eyvindara.
In summer, a restaurant opens on-site, where you can enjoy a range of dishes made from locally-sourced ingredients as well as some local performances. Breakfast can also be arranged for an additional cost.
Why Choose Hotel Eyvindara?
Hotel Eyvindara has great appeal to solo travellers, couples, and even larger groups, who want a mystic escape to east Iceland without losing out on modern amenities. Check availability here.
