West Iceland: Places to Stay

18.04.2017 | Lella Erludóttir

West Iceland is sometimes referred to as 'Iceland in mini' and the region offers endless adventures and places to explore. We recommend spending at least one night in the West of Iceland, so you don’t have to rush enjoying all of the wonderful attractions in the area. From charming, colourful fishing towns to the Snæfellsjökull National Park, there is a lot to see and do in this part of Iceland. We might even be willing to share some secret spots with you.

With over 170 carefully selected accommodations around the country each with a unique experience to offer, we at Hey Iceland want to help you find the perfect place to stay during your time in Iceland.
In West Iceland, we offer cosy bed and breakfasts, guesthouses, hostels and charming farm cottages, where you can get a first-hand experience of how an Icelandic farm is run. Staying in a Hey Iceland accommodation is a unique experience that allows you to discover the real Iceland in its rugged beauty. Our hosts will take good care of you and make you feel right at home!

Steindórsstaðir Farm Stay


Steindórsstaðir is an attractive bed and breakfast on a working farm located on a hillside in one of Iceland's most beautiful regions. A crystal clear river leisurely flows through the valley and the surrounding countryside offers a warm welcome to visitors keen on exploring nearby natural wonders.

Langaholt Guesthouse


Langaholt offers a magnificent view of the mysterious Snæfellsjökull Glacier. On a yellow sandy beach just a stone‘s throw away, birds of various kinds enjoy life while the odd seal peeks its head up from the waves only a few metres out. The landscape of Snæfellsnes Peninsula is amazingly varied. Volcanic activity of days long gone and the pounding of waves have created the remarkable surroundings of this bright and cosy bed and breakfast and its popular seafood restaurant.

The houses are on either side of salmon river Langá, 6 km (3.7 mi) from town Borgarnes in fjord Borgarfjörður in Southwest Iceland. Rooms are either ensuite or share bathrooms. Here, the chime of waterfalls and centuries past blend together. A good location for those who want to tour the fjord and the Snæfellsnes peninsula. Fun hikes along the river Langá.
