Soak Up Snæfellsnes Peninsula
Kast Guesthouse provides accommodation, camping and nature
The silver and white lines of Kast Guesthouse stand out in stark contrast to the earthy tones of the surrounding nature here on the south shore of Snæfellsnes Peninsula. To the south, the waters of Faxaflói Bay lap gently upon the shore and to the north, craggy rhyolite mountains rise up directly behind the guesthouse. In the distance, the glacier-topped Snæfellsnes Volcano sits serenely in all its splendour, just waiting to be explored.
Sleep in Heavenly Peace
Family-run Kast Guesthouse opened for business just 3 years ago and still retains that squeaky clean, brand new feel with a minimalist approach to interior design. All 27 rooms (21 with ensuite bath and 6 with shared facilities) are equipped with soft white bed linens, modern bathrooms and comfortable double beds, ensuring you have a restful night’s sleep in the absolute peace and quiet of the Icelandic countryside.
Swim in the Sparkling Waters of Lýsuhólslaug
Just a few minutes walk from the guesthouse is the Lýsuhólslaug swimming pool; one of the few pools in Iceland where you can bathe in naturally carbonated geothermal water with not a drop of chlorine. The water is rich in minerals and its healing properties are especially effective for eczema and psoriasis.
Horse riding and fishing
The guesthouse offers guided horse riding tours from one to three hours long in the surrounding area, and relatively inexpensive fishing licenses can be arranged for fishing in nearby lakes.
Wake up to freshly baked bread
A light and typically Icelandic breakfast is served in the main dining room every morning from 7.00 to 10.00 and a variety of breads are baked daily on the premises. During the day, the café is open for snacks and sandwiches and, in the evening, a basic, fixed menu is served from 19.00 to 22.00.
Kast Guesthouse also has its own camping ground with showers and cooking facilities as well as sleeping bag accommodation for those with their own bedding. There are electrical hook-ups for travellers with trailer tents and caravans and paid access to the onsite washer and dryer is also available to guests. The centrally located guesthouse is approximately 2 hours drive from Reykjavik and a 40-minute drive from Stykkishólmur. Open year round, Kast Guesthouse welcomes you.
