Au revoir

After 20 years as hosts at B&B Guesthouse we have sold our business. 

It's bittersweet to end this journey now, both since it has been great to meet and greet our guests and friends, but on the other hand, the perfect timing to retire.

We want to thank all of our guests and friends that have stayed with us the last 20 years, and promise the future guests that they will be in great hands with the new owners.

All the best,

Hilmar & Svala

Iceland – volcano eruption and Reykjanes Peninsula

As stated in Iceland monitorReykjanes Peninsula is perhaps one of the most underrated places in Iceland. It’s the home of Keflavik International Airport, and most tourists drive straight from there to Reykjavik without so much as a stop for a look around, aside for a visit to the Blue Lagoon. They don’t know what they’re missing.”

There are many stunning places to visit on the Peninsula – some them are listed here.
If you like information about the Peninsula, seen from the eyes of a traveller, you can get information about things to do, itinerary, map and practical trips here.

Volcanic eruption in Geldingadal – Iceland

An eruption started in Geldingadalur in march 2021, to the south of Fagradalsfjall, the first known eruption on the Peninsula in about 800 years. You can take a hiking tour from Grindavik to see the eruption, it surely is a breathtaking experience.
