We like to invite you to a very unique spot in the north of Iceland, offering versatile comfort and relaxation as well as excellent panorama view of Skagafjrur. Here you can benefit from the peaceful countryside with all principal services and recreation of the area within your reach.

Excellent walking facilities are in the vicinity and many places of interest are closed by. Stunning nature is at the tip of your finger where the river Hrasvtn floats peacefully by, only a short distance away from the guesthouse. The area is rich in birdlife and ideal for bird watchers and other nature lovers.

The mountain above Hofsstair and the scree in it are an ideal place for hikers and geologists and gives breathtaking view over Skagafjrur.

The midnight Artic sun seen from Hofsstadir is unforgettable and leaves no one untouched on a peaceful evening, the same goes with the Northern Lights, also called Aurora Borealis. The Northern Lights can frequently be seen from September through April on clear and crisp nights, it is the most spectacular show on this earth.
