In the old part of Borgarnes village lies "Englendingavík". This place is both scenic and peaceful, where silence is only broken by the sound of birds and the ever changing sea. Standing close by the sea, Sjávarborg is a unique house from 1890.

The room faced the calm inlet. We saw lots of birds walking and pecking on the shallow sea from its window. There was a path along the inlet. We enjoyed walking along the path. The room was clean and the host was a nice guy. We spent marvelous time. Thank you.
