Where you’ll be

Borgarnes, Väster, Iceland

Borgarnes is an excellent choice for those who want to travel around West Iceland with its unique nature. Reykjavík is also just 70 km away and there are regular buses to ”town”.

Borgarnes is a very friendly town with hiking opportunities along the picturesque coast. There are two large grocery stores and a very good bakery: Geirabakarí Kaffihús featured as Papa Joe's in ”The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”. The café Blómasetrið - Kaffi Kyrrð serves home-made waffles with cream. Ljómalind Farmers Market has home made ice cream, fresh eggs and more local delights directly from the farms in West Iceland. The Settlement Center, which is based in two of Borgarnes’ oldest buildings just around the corner from our home, is devoted to recreating Iceland’s earliest days, including one of the best-known heroes of the Icelandic Sagas, Egil Skalla-Grimsson. They also have an excellent restaurant and serve our favourite vegetarian buffet daily (11-15pm). For the sporty, Borgarnes has basketball courts, soccer fields, jogging paths, a great outdoor geothermal swimming pool and a pretty park, Skallagrímsgarður.

Day trips are easy from Borgarnes. Our favourite daytours are Snæfellsnes and the Snæfellsjökull glacier, as adventurously described in the Jules Verne novel ”Journey to the Center of the Earth”. Continue on anywhere in any direction and discover what locals refer to as the REAL Iceland.

Marvel pristine coastlines and visit quaint villages. Patient hikers may spot arctic foxes and falcons. Killer whales and dolphins can be spotted further up in the bay and are best seen with a tour. Coastal drives, fishing, geothermal hot pot hunting and hiking are great past times. During the fall, wintertime and springtime NORTHERN LIGHTS sweep through the skies.
The Saga Route is a historical literary travel route that passes through Borgarnes. Visit the artist Páll á Húsafelli known for his stone and drift wood instruments.

Welcome to my dream home, situated directly on the sea shore in Borgarnes, Iceland. When I travel the world, I love to be a part of the place I visit by staying in somebody's home, rented through Airbnb. I am addicted to the sea, so I always prefer travelling to places by the sea...when I'm not at home in Stockholm or Iceland.

During your stay

We gladly share our family vacation home and it's stunning views with traveling families and smaller groups, when we are away. I live with my husband and three kids in Stockholm, but we spend as much time as we can in our dream home in Borgarnes. I arrange yoga workshops regularly in Borgarnes and the kids appreciate the freedom that children in the Icelandic countryside enjoy. We also love to hike in the beautiful mountains in Borgarfjördur and Snæfellsnes.
