Halfway between Reykjavik and Akureyri and once the scene of jousting tournaments, according to the Icelandic Sagas. Now a more peaceful place with the secluded Vatnsnes peninsula and brooding basalt cliffs at Hvitserkur exuding natural calm. Rest and relaxation is to be found among the region’s hot springs and one of Iceland’s most famous salmon fishing rivers runs close by the hotel.
