Arnarnes paradis - An organic experience with endless sunsets in the summer and gorgeous Northern lights in the winter

The hosts, Eyglo and Josavin have lived in Arnarnes since 1981. For the first 18 years they were traditional farmers with cows, sheep and horses but have stopped farming altogether. Now they run a small B&B with a small restaurant and gallery. Their hobbies are many; Eyglo likes painting and practices alternative medicine, Josavin is a carpenter and does all carpentry work and building projects in Arnarnes along with turning wood in his little work shop.

Arnarnes paradis  aims to maintain and preserve the nature. They are a part of the project Responsible tourism, a declaration endorsed by leaders from over 250 companies at Reykjavik University on January 10 2017 in the presence of the President of Iceland, Guðni Th. Jóhannesson, who is also patron of the project.

Eygló is a yoga instructor, Reiki master and has finished studies in holistic medicine. During the winter season they offer a weekend health package where participants enjoy the peace and quiet of nature, yoga, organic meals and introduction on healthy lifestyle.

Arnarnes paradis aims to make your breakfast as organic as possible. The tea is from the wild herbs from the grounds and all sugar added to the jams is organic. The salad and the vegetables come from the greenhouse. What they can’t grow or produce themselves they buy from a certified local supplier of organic produce.

They also aim to make your sleeping experience as organic as possible. All linen is made from organic cotton and with fair trade commitment. It is also manufactured in Iceland .
