The space

Friendly atmosphere. We have local hot spring that gives us geothermal heating and hot water for our hot tub and a small natural pool. The guesthouse has 5 bedrooms and two bathrooms with showers. Guests have free access to hot tub on the veranda, small natural pool and the kitchen. They can also buy home made breakfast from hosts (Pancakes, egg, juice, coffee etc.). Guests can also order homemade meals. The property is large with mountains and coastline and beautiful nature with rich bird life and lots of hiking possibilities. The property is midway between village Hofsós (20 min drive) and the town Siglufjordur (30 min drive).

Guest access

All shared parts of the house are available to our guests.

Interaction with guests

We live in another house on the property and are available most of the time.

Other things to note

The hot tub is available from early morning to midnight with view over the North Atlantic Ocean. There is nothing like enjoying the midnight sun in summer or northern lights in winter from our hot tub.

This was my favorite place to stay in Iceland! The Guesthouse is super clean and has an amazing hot spring right on the deck. There is a nice living room to hang out in, and the kitchen had all the tools we needed. Plus, we had great conversations with the hosts. Make sure to have a cellphone handy or to confirm arrival details beforehand, as the location is a bit isolated. Fantastic place!

Incredible location right on the water, on a fallow farm. Gorgeous modern house, hot tub, all with views of water and mountains. Clean, comfortable, spacious gathering areas. Friendly lovely hostess. Friendly small white Icelandic sheepdog next door who will escort you on walks should beyou desire. You cannot get lost since he will guide you home. Book this one!

Staying at Gimbur Guesthouse was a highlight of our trip. The photos do not do this house justice. We were surprised to find such nice accommodation for the price. It's located on a beautiful bluff with a lovely dog which will accompany/lead you on walks around the property. Our hosts were attentive, friendly, and accommodating. I recommend you pay extra for the breakfast, it's well worth the price and the best breakfast we had in our 11 days in Iceland. Our room was lovely, the kitchen is spacious, and the second level common area is stunning with sweeping views of the Arctic Ocean and with lovely hills as a backdrop. We had such a nice time watching movies and taking a dip in their hot tub that we didn't sleep much that night but when we did the beds were very comfortable. Our only regret is that we chose to stay two nights in Myvatn instead of here. I highly recommend this place and I hope to come stay here again someday.

Beautiful Guesthouse on a large secluded property by the sea. Lovely clean and creative aesthetic, it was so relaxing staying here. Enjoyed looking out over the sea and whale watching from the second floor. You can "see" the Arctic Circle from the hill right next to the house– super cool! Experiencing the Northern Lights from the hot tub was spectacular. Sjöfn is a wonderful, welcoming host who cooks delicious meals and has many ideas on things to do and see in the area. Hope to return soon! Thank you!!

Wonderful experience! We had a large room with a very comfortable bed. There are two bathrooms for the guests so sharing a bathroom is fine. The entire home is shared among the guests - the owners live on the next property. Very clean. Excellent breakfast! The dog is the sweetest! Thank you.

This guesthouse is really special. The room was spacious, clean, and had a really nice bed, very comfortable. We had a cloudy night but enjoyed the hot pot very much and woke up to beautiful clear views to the ocean and surrounding mountains. We took a walk, jumped on the Arctic and enjoyed the views over breakfast. Great hosts, well equipped kitchen, lovely place!
