The surroundings are rural and beautiful with mountain, ocean and 3 large lakes very close by,  and endless possibilities of enjoying nature. Iceland’s biggest seal habitant is very close to the hotel, which draws many curious travelers to the area.  The famous rock formations “Hvítserkur” give the area a special attraction for travelers. The peninsula Vatnsnes and Vesturhóp is one of Iceland’s “hidden places” and is also a paradise for birds and thereby birdwatchers.

The name Borgarvirki stems from historic ruins close by, a fort build by nature on a hilltop with ancient ruins, there are stories of it being used from the Viking era and is a very special place to visit.
