Reykhólar Hostel

Reykhólar, at the southern edge of the Westfjords, is a bird-watcher´s paradise as it is possible to spot almost all bird species that breed in Iceland. Stay at the charming renovated hostel, located by the seaside, to explore the natural wonders of the area. Enjoy a quiet walk among the birch trees, which surround Reykhólar Hostel, or hike the nearby mountains to experience the great view over Breiðafjörður bay with its endless islands and islets. Close by are the unique Seaweed Baths of Reykhólar, where you can relax and allow your skin to soak in the powerful and nurturing elements of the seaweed. In the area is a very variable bird life; it is simply a birdwatchers paradise. The Whooper swan, which is the biggest Icelandic bird, nests in this part of the country. The main nesting place of the birds´ king, the sea eagle, is also in this area.
