“Excellent guesthouse hidden in the fjords”
Reviewed November 30, 2010

I strongly recommend staying at Tunguholt Guesthouse if you are travelling in East Iceland. It is very well located at the end of the fjord near Fáskrúðsfjörður, it is quiet and it is very cheap.

We discovered this place while trying to go to the Berunes Youth Hostel. The hostel was fully booked but the gentlement there was kind enough to recommend us to Tunguholt (he even booked for us!).

The gentleman who welcomed us was very kind and charming. The house and the rooms at Tunguholt are quite large. There is a kitchen with a fridge, oven, etc. if you want to lunch there. There are a lot of parking space beside the house and it is extremely calm. The house is located at the end of the fjord which makes for a magnificient view.

A really great place to stop by between Höfn & Egilsstadir.

We were welcomed warmly by the farmer, Fridmar, and his wife. Tunguholt is an independent house at the end of the fjord, with a superb view. It seemed a pity that there was not more custom, as it was excellent value for money and had everything one could want; we had it to ourselves, well-furnished and homely, with some interesting old photographs. An explorer and photographer in 1897 had taken photographs of people about their everyday activities At 6,000 IKr, it should have been full; we recommend it strongly—a really nice place. You can park immediately outside.
