Here you can benefit from the peaceful countryside with all principal services and recreation of the area within your reach. Excellent walking facilities are in the vicinity and many places of interest are closed by. Stunning nature is at the tip of your finger where the river Héraðsvötn floats peacefully by, only a short distance away from the guesthouse. The area is rich in birdlife and ideal for bird watchers and other nature lovers. The mountain above Hofsstaðir and the scree in it are an ideal place for hikers and geologists and gives breathtaking view over Skagafjörður.
