Salthús Guesthouse

- Guesthouses

Guesthouse, Salthús Gallery and Artist Residency in Skagaströnd.

The Salthús which was renovated into a guesthouse in 2017, got its name around 1950. It then housed a fishing plant, where cod was salted and dried for export – hence the Salthouse name. The Salthús is located on Spákonufellshöfði, a landmark cape in Skagaströnd, where you can view spectacular sunsets and Northern lights.

The Salthouse is a two story house, which houses up to 36 people. Each floor has seven spacious bedrooms, all with private bathrooms and a fully equipped communal kitchen. On the first floor there are 4 family rooms with ocean view and garden access, and 3 twin rooms with mountain view, whereof two have disability access. The upper floor has 7 double rooms with either sea view to the south or mountain to the north.

In the halls of the Salthús Guesthouse we run a gallery that exhibits contemporary art from Nes Artist Residency alumni and other international artists.

In Skagaströnd you can enjoy walking, hiking, golf or fishing in lakes or rivers. Sightseeing along the less travelled Arctic Coastal Way, you can find Kálfshamarsvík and its spectacular columnar basalt cliffs, seals and birdlife - a must see in this part of Iceland.
