Skagastrond is a small village in a beautiful peaceful area. From the cabin is a view over the Village and to the mountains.
Take a walk and enjoy the clean air, the peace and quiet surroundings. The nature is on your doorstep.
You can also walk to the sea shore, watch seals and listen to the birds or take a walk on the cliff/rock Spakonufellshofdi behind the cottage and have a beautiful view over the bay Hunafloi. In summer time the birds has their nest on part of the hill, and can be bit aggressive. You can have a small bamboo stick with you and hold it up. If you want to go fishing, it is no problem to buy licence. Or if you want to go horse riding it is possible to rent a horse in Blonduos. In good weather it is fun and rather easy walk to go to the top of the Mountain Spakonufellsborg. The view is amazing. A marked trail runs to the top of the mountain from the farm Brandaskarð. Or you can walk around the mountain. Spakonufell is one of the most impressive mountain in this area. It is 646 m high. The name of the mountain derives from Thordis the prophetess who lived on a farm of the same name as the mountain, situated by its roots in the 10th century. She was the first person to settle in Skagastrond.
Selavikurtangi is about 40 km north of Skagastrond at Kaldranavik. Just out from the shore at a distance of about 40 - 50 m you can see seals at as they lie sprawled on the reefs and gaze with curiosity into the eyes of the tourists. They can be very numerous.

Lovely environment, even though we were arrived late, and left early the next day.
The cottage was very clean and in a beautiful place. The host was very kind giving us all the information we needed.
Everything was perfect and as told in the web. Maybe is a bit more little that how looks in the photos, but its ok. Cosy house in a cosy village.
The owner came to say hello and show in a map things to do. Thanks to that we change part of our trip and we found the north fiords, what was one of my favorite parts os Iceland.
Hofdahus is friendly and communicative, gave us great tips of the area.the cottage is great, good equipped in a beautiful environment.Highly recommended!!
Gunnar was home when we arrived and supplied our sheets and some advice for local sight seeing. Its a cozy cabin - kind of tight for our group. But we arrived in the evening and checked out in the morning. I was surprised by the location -- the short hike right behind the cabin was amazing.
Le chalet est bien situé. Le chalet pourrait être mis au gout du jour : remplacer certains meubles par exemple.
We had a very nice and cozy stay at the cabin. The walk right out the back door is gorgeous! We did not really feel comfortable with the self-cleaning policy (enforced by a very hefty fine) and felt that mattress covers and pillow cases should have been provided regardless of whether or not you are sleeping in your own sleeping bag.
