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 in 2011 but recently added an additional house to their accommodation. Known for great atmosphere and hospitality, this hidden gem offers both double, triple and family rooms, all spacious yet cosy. 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 the world 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. At winter time the opening hours are irregular but they try to keep it open when weather allows, so look them up on Facebook to keep tabs on the opening hours.
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 typical 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.
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. – EMV
