Glacier World Guesthouse, Hoffell, Iceland

August 6, 2019


After traveling from Vík, stopping at multiples place and had dinner over in Höfn, it was nearly 10pm when we arrived at Glacier World Guesthouse in Hoffell. We walked to the entrance and OMG IT'S LOCKED! Before I could even think about what to do next, a car approached. A nice man came up to us and opened the door. Apparently he was looking out his window occasionally waiting for our arrival! How nice! It was late so we checked in and went to sleep. The next morning WE WOKE UP TO SNOW! ON A FARM! WITH HORSES! I grew up in California so snow is a rare sight and quite magical for me. On top of that I've been looking for horses since arriving in Iceland (you will see more horses as you go north). So yeah, needless to say I was pretty darn excited! We watched the snow fall over a delicious breakfast (talk about farm to table!) and then had the pleasure to tour the property with Fríða (daughter of this family-run guesthouse). She shared with us her family history and the story of Hoffell (we found out the kind man who opened the door for us was her father!) Before checking out and continuing our journey northeast, we stopped by the geothermal hot tubs down the road (these are free if you are a guest at Glacier World Guesthouse) and checked out the horses. They were so friendly and came right up to us! Overall, we love this minimal yet cozy little guesthouse in the middle of nowhere and thank you Fríða and your family for such hospitality!
