This guesthouse has a lot of rooms, but also a lot of space and certainly enough toilets and bathrooms. Which are nicely decorated btw. They just opened a guest kitchen so I made myself something for dinner there. Akureyri is also close by and has a lot of eating possibilities. Breakfast was fine. The guesthouse is situated in a quiet surrounding (I laughed out loud while approaching the guesthouse and reading the messages along the way :-). They offer horse riding tours, there is a hot tub, the views are great, you can have a seat in the dining area in the evening with coffee or tea,… so I can honestly say that this place has everything you need and more!

If you want to get away from everything, and just be present in nature and life. This is the place... Loved the views, my kids went horse riding and two stays wasn’t enough. There are 5ish bathrooms so this wasn’t a problem at all.

This was my second time in Skjaldarvík. Came here first for a couples weekend and now with the family. I love the location and the staff is really nice. Love the hot tub outside where you can relax and the wiew over the ocean and mountains is so beautiful. Highly recommended.

We didn’t make reservations in advance but calling the afternoon and got the 2 last rooms. The room was not big but very clean and nice. The person who greeted us was very friendly and showed us around the house. I would recommend staying here for a quiet cozy vacation.

Elisa was an amazing guide, for horseback riding here. We didn't stay in the Guest House, but when we head back to Iceland, we will. It's gorgeous. We were scheduled to ride, by Berta, from another hotel. What a fabulous time! The views are stunning, the company was fulfilling, and the horses were just lovely. My husband isn't a rider, so this was extra special for him. For me, it's been a dream to ride an Icelandic horse, and that dream was fulfilled. Thank you to Elisa, for all her instruction and information. Our other guide, in the front, was equally nice. It was one of the highlights of our Iceland visit. Can't wait to go back.
