Hotel Snæfell a three story wooden house built in 1908 situated by the mouth of the river “Fjarðará”. It has beautiful views over the small bay in the center of town. The house was first used as the local post office and then in 1943 it was turned into a hotel. Through the years it has played many roles. It has housed a shoemaker workshop, a taxi station and a large restaurant. The house also served as a home to several families before becoming a hotel. The hotel has now been partially restored and has nine cozy rooms.
Please note that the hotel standard in Iceland outside of Reykjavik is basic, but still very comfortable (tourist class hotels no more than 3 stars). All the hotels included in our tours have private bathroom facilities and breakfast is included.Distances:
Hotel rooms in Scandinavia are generally furnished with twin beds, which can be moved together to form a double bed or placed separately (some hotels have double beds though). Unless otherwise specified all rooms have private bathroom facilities, which are often equipped with a shower instead of a bath. Please note that single rooms are generally smaller than doubles. Purpose-built triple or family rooms are likewise unusual in Scandinavian hotels. Whilst it is possible for 3 persons to share a room, this will normally be formed by a double room with an extra bed. As a result space may be restricted.
Unless otherwise clearly specified a standard room/cabin is included in the tour price.
