“A rural guesthouse and campsite in a beautiful natural setting. Rooms in the old farmhouse are simple and bright with thermally heated floors. The summer houses offer accommodation for groups in pretty pine cabins. Guests can enjoy three thermal springs and a pool. A spectacular retreat to nature.”

Hotel Review

The sparsely populated Westfjords of Iceland offers visitors miles of untouched natural beauty. Heydalur is based on the site of a remote farm and blends quietly in with the splendour of its rural surroundings. The unfussy rooms and bright, traditional wood cabins offer a comfortable stay for groups or families. From the sitting room of your private apartment, you can marvel at the views through the French doors or out on the terrace. Guests can choose a quiet holiday relaxing in the thermal springs or can take up one of the many activities the hotel offers. Horse riding is a particular highlight, with professional guides taking you along the river to the fjord itself. In the oversaturated market of package Icelandic tours, this simple country retreat is a breath of fresh air.
