Location & Activities

 

We are located in Dalvík up in north Iceland. Dalvík is a small fishing village surrounded by the valleys and the mountains of the Troll peninsula and the Arctic ocean only 65 km from island Grímsey and the Arctic Circle. Staying in Dalvík offers opportunities for many types of activities and interesting places to enjoy nearby.

In Dalvík municipality you'll find whale watching, an interesting folk museum, a microbrewery, a beer spa, a black sand beach, a nature/bird reserve, a horse rental, a ski area, and endless possibilities of ski touring in the winter time.

In Dalvík there is a nice local public swimming pool with hot tubs, steam baths, a gym, and many marked hiking trails of all kinds. Dalvík has a few places noted if guests want to get a good coffee or a meal - including our café/bar, Gísli, Eiríkur og Helgi.

We are only 45 km away from Akureyri and the domestic airport of Akureyri, 33 km up north we have Siglufjörður town, and Lake Mývatn is just over an hour's drive from Dalvík. Grímsey ferry leaves from Dalvík for a nice day trip, sailing takes 3 hours each way.

Whitewater Action (East)

Exciting rapids, mind-blowing scenery, and one of the most remote single-day settings on the planet make the East Glacial River Iceland's signature rafting trip!

Beer spa

Beer bath, where you bathe in both young beer and live beer yeast, without showering it of until some hours later, has an extremely powerful effect on the body and skin. This treatment is both cleansing for the skin and has a very positive effect on health

River Delta

A 3-hour horse riding tour to the glacier river delta where you arrive at the amazing waterfall Reykjafoss. In the amazing natural paradise of the river delta Héraðsvötn, you might be able to watch birds hatching or pick a handful of crowberries.

*Not suitable for beginners

100% Whale Watching

Enjoy a comfortable tour while observing the fantastic scenery, birdlife, and of course the diverse range of whale species of Eyjafjordur. Commonly, we see Humpback Whales, Minke Whales, Harbour Porpoise, and White Beaked Dolphins. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of a Killer Whale or a Blue Whale! 

Whale Watching (optional Sea Angling at end of tour)

Enjoy a comfortable tour while observing the fantastic scenery, birdlife, and of course the diverse range of whale species of Eyjafjordur. Enjoy a little sea angling on the return trip and have your catch filleted to take with you.

Off we go - riding tour

Spending a whole day traveling on horseback is truly Icelandic! While riding one of the horses, you will lead the other horse beside you and later on change. You will be enjoying the impressive panorama of the Skagafjörður mountains while tölting on nice and comfortable riding paths.

We have great reviews!

Clean and quiet hostel with friendly staff

"The hostel was very clean and quiet. The kitchen was fully equipped and has enough seats for eating. After check-in, the manager gave us a map with nice hiking trails and other useful information. The view to the fjord and the mountains was excellent."

Loved our stay in the cottages!

"We stayed one night in the cottage. We are a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 boys, ages 10 and 11). The cottage was very cosy! Not a lot of room to move around, but we didn't mind. It did have a kitchenette, bathroom, and beds for us all. It was very clean! Enough dishes to cook our dinner, make our coffee, etc. We loved the whole area, and especially the hot tub in the back! The kids loved jumping on the trampoline. Bjarni, the owner, was very communicative with me prior to our visit and offered great advice on things to see nearby. He also owns a cafe in the town. I highly recommend this hostel - one of our favorites."

101 year old farm Cottage! Splendid!

"We did stay in the 101 year old Farmhouse. It was absolutely lovely and so far the best equipped cottage we stayed in Iceland. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful! It was an amazing stay !!"
