The Vogur Country Lodge opened fairly recently and is still getting some of the final touches on its building. It is very remote, 1/2 hour's drive along a gravel road from the nearest village, but in a very beautiful location with its own waterfall in back, and very nice and modern facilities. The food was excellent, prepared by professionals with experience in the better hotels in Rekjavik, but our room was not cleaned during our 3-night stay, nor was our table once after we ate there. The lodge serves breakfast and dinner at reasonable extra charges, as well as bag lunches, and the staff are very helpful with ideas about what to do within a reasonable drive. The best experience for me of our entire vacation was a tour, arranged by the chef, of a family farm on the north side of the peninsula where we were able to visit a family church with at 1,000 year history and see how eider down is collected and processed.
