First of all, this accommodation is absolutely not in Isafjordur. It is in the countryside about an hour and a half from the city. Nonetheless, it is an absolutely fantastic guesthouse. The surroundings are magical and I really wish we had been able to stay here longer and enjoy some horseback riding or kayaking.
The staff are very friendly, warm, and accommodating. They provided us with plates and cutlery for our self-catered meal, when they could have easily refused to do so as they have their own restaurant (restaurant looked really nice and cozy). The staff will also let you borrow from their board game collection and bring these to your room.
Our room was very quaint, quiet, and with a beautiful view over the mountains and pastures. They seemed to be expanding the guesthouse while we were there. We really enjoyed the outdoor hot pot, which was very warm.
At one point we stepped outside and THERE WAS AN ARCTIC FOX OUTSIDE OUR DOOR! As animal lovers, we were absolutely enthralled to get a chance to be so close to one of Iceland's most elusive creatures. It made our stay at Heydalur that much more special.
