Heydalur is one of my favorite places in Iceland. I use every opportunity to bring my foreign guests there and it has always been a success story. The hospitality of the owners is a great combination with the beautiful nature and good food and accommodation.

We were in the Westfjords with no real itinerary, and it is remote . We wanted to ride hirses, and this was the one place that was open past mid-September. Plus there is a geothermal pool on the premises and a restaurant. The weather was horrible - pouring rain, so we were not able to ride afterall, but we did... More

We stayed in Heydalur for one night, after driving through the western part of the Westfjords. I wish we had stayed longer to take advantage of the beautiful property and activities! The staff were super friendly and we loved the cozy common room.

Amazing "ranch" out in the Icelandic countryside. Very peaceful and laid back. Natural hot pot only a short hike away. Horseback riding. Best food of the entire Iceland trip. Very nice people running the place. A bit "off road", but worth the drive.

The room was lovely. We had a small bedroom for our son, and an actual double bed for my husband and me, which was rare in Iceland with a little sitting area. We had our own private bathroom with shower, also unusual in Iceland. It was large and comfortable. There was also a kitchenette with a refrigerator. The restaurant meal... More

We stayed in Heydalur for 2 nights and should have stayed longer. The new rooms are spacious and comfortable. The restaurant is wonderful! Each night, we had the choice of a fantastic buffet or delicious meals from the menu. Most of the food is homegrown or local (go visit the trout pond!). The staff are very friendly. Our guide took...

Lovely. We had a long drive to this fab family guesthouse, but it as definitely worth it. We had no time to do any activities, but the food was amazing, locally grown on the farm and locally supplied. Service was great, and the lady who runs the farm was amazing and friendly. Would return when we have more time to... More

We stayed in Heydalur for 2 nights. It's an isolated place, but that's why it's so nice. Peace and quit in beautiful nature. The owner is Icelandic, but the staff has multiple nationalities. The diversity in people makes it interesting. Because of the isolated location they try to be self-sufficient and make all the meals as much as they can... More

We arrived at this hotel after a 5 hours drive from Reykjavik through the amazing sceneries along the road, worth alone the ride!! Eventhough we were tired from a long journey, the location of the hotel nested in the valley near the Fjords, in the middle of no where, was by itself invigorating. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable.... More
