We offer private accommodation inside the warmth and quiet of our home in Borgarnes.
Our home is the perfect base camp for exploring Borgarnes and its environs or Snæfellsnes Peninsula; or, take a break from a hectic road trip and reconnect with nature with beautiful mountain views from the living room, spend time relaxing downstairs in our café, or do some soul-searching amid the tranquil and meditative environment upstairs, downstairs, or along the coast, which is just a few steps away.

The space
There's nothing nicer than sharing your travels with the one you love; take the time to savor every moment in this bright, airy room equipped with queen-sized bed, table and chairs. Take advantage of the large window (with blackout blinds) with a beautiful view of the Old Town -- you might even get the chance to see a rainbow.
A serene setting with panoramic views conducive to repose. The view from the living room is stunning. The interior is comfortable and cozy. The walls are adorned with artwork, family photos and an eclectic, unique array of artifacts from around the world.
All rooms come with bed linens and duvet as well as towels.
Our beautiful and cozy café/bar, Kaffi Kyrrð (Café Tranquillity) is on the ground floor where there is also our flower and a gift shop, Blómasetrið (The Flower Center).
We share our home with our well-mannered dog, so our rooms are not the best choice for people with dog allergies.

Where you’ll be

Borgarnes, West, Iceland

Borgarnes is a perfect home base for traveling around West Iceland. It's a very friendly and quaint town with hiking opportunities, and exploring the picturesque coast is a must.

There are 2 grocery stores and a very good bakery; Geirabakari Kaffihús starred as Papa Joe's in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Blómasetrið - Kaffi Kyrrð is the café we run downstairs; we serve Illy coffee, light meals, cakes, and homemade waffles with whipped cream. Ljómalind Farmers Market has artisan ice cream, fresh eggs and more local delights.
The Settlement Center, in addition to being a fun and informative museum, has an excellent restaurant with a variety of meat and seafood dishes (open until 9 pm) and serves a daily vegetarian lunch buffet (11am-3pm). Just next door, there is also Englendingavik, a restaurant with a spectacular view of the sea, fantastic seafood and craft beer on draft.

Worth visiting in town: take a short walk along the picturesque coast to the handmade playground crafted from wood, Bjössaróló, or continue along the trail to the swimming pool in Borgarnes, one of Iceland's best! Borgarnes has basketball courts, soccer fields, jogging paths, and a lovely park, where you can visit the grave of Egill Skallagrímsson.
Day trips are easy, as Borgarnes is close to many waterfalls, mountains, caves, and glaciers.
Marvel at 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.
There are easily a week's worth of day trips from Borgarnes. Some of these include:
1) Driving around the Snæfellsjökull glacier. (the volcano mentioned in Jules Verne's novel Journey to the Center of the Earth.) The road around the glacier has many stops and short hikes. This is a full day trip. Hiking the glacier is a separate day trip, as is whale watching with Láki Tours in Grundarfjörður.
2) Driving through the Reykholt Valley: visiting Fossatún and the Lava Falls (Hraunfossar) and hiking Hestfjall.
3) Hiking Glymur, the highest waterfall in Europe.
Coastal drives, fishing, geothermal hot pot hunting and hiking are great pastimes. 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 Guðmundsson in Húsafell known for his stone and drift wood instruments.
