Sæberg HI Hostel

Halfway between Reykjavík and Akureyri you’ll find Sæberg Hostel.

Choose between dorms, private rooms, camping or exclusive cottages in this quiet farm on the shore. Ideal place for those looking for a peaceful countryside setting to relax and recharge the batteries. After a long day of driving, the private geothermal hot tub on the shore makes for the perfect place to relax and take in the views of the sea and watch the sun go down. Birds such as oystercatchers and eider ducks make their home on the beach, seals and whales can also sometimes be spotted swimming through the shallow water of the fjord.

In the area:
