We had a great experience staying at one of the cabins at the farm for three nights. Our hosts were so helpful and friendly and made it a visit to remember. Everything was 100%, the cabin was clean and cozy and the hot tub lovely. We recommend a meal at their restaurant which is ran with ambition and an effort to make every guest happy 😁
Solvi and Karen are the perfect hosts. The cabins are spotless and charming. Solvi was an excellent tour guide for us on a day trip. So full of humor, along with local and country knowledge. Karen is an excellent hostess and cook. They both made our trip special. Thanks!
This little guesthouse is remote, quiet and restful. The hosts are friendly and the home is clean. The food is made fresh and is delicious. If you stay, definitely order the breakfast with homemade jams and breads, it is an Icelandic treat.
We booked two rooms, both were beautiful and comfortable. The lady taking care of the place was very welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was tasty, we loved the waffles. There were plenty of toilets and showers so we never had to queue and everything was very clean. We enjoyed having the shared living room with couches and tv to hang out in the evening. The place is in a very quiet area and we slept very well. We could park our car right next to the entrance so there was no problem with carrying the luggage to the rooms. The only minor negatives are that the double bedroom was a bit small and became cramped when we put our luggage in but we had a lot of bags and giant suitcases. Also, the night lamp in the twin room was too far from the socket and could not be plugged in.
Our cabin was spotless and comfortable. Near a river, next to a farm and yet close enough to both Akureyri and Egilsstadir. The Vopnafjordur area may be one of the last gorgeous undeveloped areas. The owners were extra friendly. We hope to return.
Sireksstadir is physically and culturally removed from the tourist trap of south west Iceland. You can capture a real slice of Icelandic culture hosted by a local family. The owners live next to the site and travelling outside of season we were the only guests, so had the place entirely to ourselves which was very peaceful. Arriving late it was a little hard to find, so be organised. Upon arrival there was a note left for us to call a phone number for the host, although we were unable to get mobile reception. We drove back up to the road to find some but one of the hosts had already spotted us so was already driving over. It was a friendly welcome and nice that their young daughter came over too. Our cabin was split between three rooms, a lounge/ diner/ kitchen, bathroom and…
This facility has a guest house and cabins. The owner was very welcoming. We had a great dinner and then she joined us to chat about the area. We were the only people there for the night. The surroundings are nice for walks. It is very near the Burstafell Museum which has a great example of turf houses. Breakfast was available for purchase but we did not.
Loved our stay on this beautiful sheep farm. The rooms are standard bunk house rooms, but are clean and quiet. The farm's dining room makes farm-to-table fresh meals. The lamb meatballs were outstanding! The staff is very friendly and helpful. Gisilina was a great host. We enjoyed visiting with her. Walking the hillside above the river is a wonderful way to spend the evening after a delicious meal. Wi-Fi was very weak/basically non-existent, but the farm is in the middle of nowhere in a valley, so it is understandable. The farm is a 35 minute drive outside of Vopnafjodur. If you are low on gas (meaning at 1/2 tank or lower), refuel in the town before proceeding to the farm. The road to the farm weaves along a gravel road going down into the valley towards the river. A quiet and…
As we drove up to the cabins and were greeted by the hostess's eager sheep dog. We were a group of four, and the cabin accommodated us well. There was a good sized table, where we made breakfast of toast and tea. The beds had a choice of a thin blanket and a thicker one for our sleeping comfort. Most importantly for modern travelers the WiFi worked well. The owners were very nice and catered to our curiosity of sheep. On the morning that we left, we got to play with some of their baby sheep. As city slickers, that totally made our day!
We only stay for one night, in the beginning, we were kind regret booked this cabin, it's kind of far, but it turn out, it was our best night stay for the week in Iceland. The room is clean, bed is comfortable, our first night slept through the whole night, without wake up in the middle of the night. it's beautiful surroundings. It feel so relax here. The host very kind let us to visit the farm, let us hold the 2days old baby lam, and show us around the whole stable. One thing to keep in mind. It's full equipped kitchen, but no any cooking oil and seasoning, Wifi is not very strong.
