Northern Lights at your doorstep!

Iceland is one of the best places in the world to see the Northen Lights. On clear, crisp winter nights in Iceland, you can experience the Aurora dancing magically across the sky. Seeing the Northern Lights would be the cherry on top on top of your winter trip in Iceland. You can maximise your chances of seeing the Northern Lights by staying at a Northern Lights friendly accommodation. Being Northern Lights friendly means they offer some extra services in regards to the Northern Lights. We let you know what the prognosis is of spotting the Northern Lights in the evening. We also offer an optional wake-up call if we see Aurora activity. Guests also have access to coffee, tea and hot chocolate while watching the magical display.

Golf and fishing

The nearby town of Borgarnes (3 km) has a good geothermal swimming pool, cafés, restaurants, playgrounds and museums. Borgarnes is also a great base for those keen on golfing and fishing. An 18-hole golf course is located 4 km outside Borgarnes and three other golf courses are located in the Borgarfjörður area. Fishing is possible in nearby rivers and lakes. Guided glacier tours and caving explorations are available in the area as well.

Sagas and hiking

The Settlement Centre in Borgarnes features two regular exhibitions with audio guides available in 10 different languages. One exhibition is about the settlement of Iceland and the other interprets the well known Egil's Saga. In a country park just outside Borgarnes there are several interesting and well-marked hiking trails. The mountain above Hotel Hafnarfjall is sure to tempt anyone interested in a vigorous climb - and a breathtaking view from the top!

Hot springs, waterfalls and green valleys

Borgarfjörður district is known for its numerous attractions. A day tour by car from Hotel Hafnarfjall is a perfect way to experience the splendid farming community and scenic countryside. Deildartunguhver, Europe's largest hot spring (water volume per sec.) is 35 km away. Slightly further one can visit Reykholt, one of Iceland's most historic sites, the beautiful Hraunfossar falls and Húsafell, a popular summer resort.

Glacier tours and cave explorations

Langjökull Glacier is a little more than an hour's drive from Hotel Hafnarfjall. During summer, tours onto the glacier are offered in specially equipped super jeeps. Iceland's longest cave, Surtshellir, (1,310 m) is some 15 km from Húsafell. Víðgelmir, Iceland's largest cave and one of largest lava caves in the world is also in the area. It is protected by law but guided tours from Fljótstunga farm are available.
