Guesthouse Árból

Árból is a particularly beautiful and pleasent guest house located by the stream Búðará in the west corner of the village park.

The house was built in 1903 and there is an aura of warmth and refinement about it which reflects its long and proud history as a residence for the district governor.

The rooms, which accommodate 1-4 persons and have all undergone a thorough restoration, truly add to the pleasant atmosphere of the house.

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
