Hof farmhouse

Accommodation in a separate building at the farm Hof in Vatnsdalur. There are 6 rooms with private facilities and 3 rooms with shared facilities. We offer the use of a kitchen if preferred or grill something on the barbeque, and you can spend the evening in a big living room or enjoy a bath in our hot tub.

The area is beautifully, surrounded by mountains, a salmonriver and a small forrest. Very nice to go for some walking. There are many different birds in this area to watch. If you are interested to go for a longer walk, go and enjoy the impressive canyon of the river Vatnsdalsá with it's many waterfalls.

The Saga of Vatnsdæla took place in this area, throughout the valley it is possible to read the story on different signs along the road. Ingimundur Gamli, the first inhabitant in this area lived at the farm Hof. The farm is filled with ancient history as recently a cemetary was found complete with leftovers of a church from around 1100.
