A Hostel, Farmhouse, and Stables, this is the perfect place to experience the pace of Icelandic farm life and nature. Having welcomed hostel guests for decades, Húsey HI hostel is a splash of color in the unspoiled landscape of the East. With seals, birds, and reindeer calling this place their home, even the drive up the road is picturesque. During summer you can soak into the rays in the sunroom and during autumn watch the Northern Lights dance over the sky. Unforgettable horse riding tours are available and booked through email or phone.
In the area:
- Horse riding tours are offered for both experienced and inexperienced riders – over moorland and along the great rivers to spot birds and seals. See the website for more details and booking.
