Hotel Húsafell

Just an hour and 90-minute drive from Reykjavik, Hotel Husafell is nestled in Borgarfjordur Valley below Langjokull Glacier in historic West Iceland. The recreational area known as Husafell has long been a beloved nature getaway by Icelanders, a perfect base for enjoying a day of glacier adventure and famous for its forests, lava caves, Icelandic Saga history and local legends. This area of West Iceland serves as the setting for most of the Icelandic Sagas with the landscape, nature and culture reflecting this heritage and bringing history to life. Exploring around the countryside of Borgarfjordur reveals remarkably picturesque Hraunfoss and Barnafoss waterfalls, where a turquoise river tumbles over volcanic cliffs.  At Deildatunguhver, Europe’s most powerful hot spring, visitors can relax in geothermally heated waters at the recently opened Krauma Bath or if they wish to stay in the premises of Hótel Húsafell, we offer tours to the Canyon Bath (Giljaböd)  As the high snowy domes of the nearby glacier ensure cold, cloudless skies and crisp winds, Borgarfjordur is considered the country’s best spot for watching the Northern Lights.
