Hótel Búðir: Love Is in the Air

The Snæfellsnes Hotel Boasts One of the Most Romantic Settings on the Island



The Snæfellsnes Peninsula is considered the jewel of the west coast of Iceland. In part, it’s because the region has a taste of everything. If you’re looking for mountains, they’re there. If you want to attempt a glacier walk, Snæfellsjökull is your place. If whale watching is what you’re after, this region has it. There’s a reason why many locals refer to the region as “Iceland in miniature”. The landscape is breathtaking with the long volcanic ridge spanning miles with rocky lava fields and towering mountains. The area is considered the most stunning place on the island by many Icelanders.

斯奈山半岛 (Snæfellsnes) 是西部公认的明珠,很大程度上因为这里几乎是一个迷你版的冰岛:寻山、山脉就在眼前;想参加冰川徒步,斯奈菲尔冰川 (Snæfellsjökull) 就是好去处;想出海观鲸,也容易办到。岛上景观令人叹为观止,诸如长长的火山山脊贯穿数公里、连绵的火山熔岩、雄伟的山峰等。在不少冰岛人看来,用“惊艳”来形容半岛恰如其分。

Romantic Getaway

Situated at the tip of the peninsula, Hótel Búðir is a romantic hotel isolated in a gorgeous stretch of the west, close to sand beaches, lava fields and an impressive mountain ridge. The hotel specialises in accommodating weddings, as it is the ideal setting to gather with friends and family to celebrate your special day. The staff, which is experienced in handling small, intimate weddings as well as large receptions, commits to doing everything possible to create the wedding of your dreams. The ceremony can take place in the noted Búðarkirkja church, standing only a few steps away from the hotel – or, if preferred, in some of the spectacular nature scenes surrounding the hotel, such as the sparkling sandy beach, or on the moss in the middle of a lava field. The possibilities are endless!


Búðir 酒店位于半岛西部一隅,这里有延绵的沙滩、通往远方的火山熔岩原、入云的山脊,一切都宁静美好。在冰岛举办婚礼是一件浪漫的事,酒店在这方面十分有经验,无论是只邀请亲人、密友的小型婚礼抑或大型婚礼,工作人员都会根据需求和规模安排妥当、筹划一场梦幻般的婚礼。地点可选在离酒店数步之遥的 Búðarkirkja 教堂,也可以选在酒店附近广袤的大自然里,比如闪着醉人光芒的沙滩或者火山熔岩上的苔原。浪漫不断、创意无限。

“A Journey to the Center of the Earth”

The natural surroundings of the hotel are magnificent, and there are various walking paths leading from the hotel to the nearby nature attractions. Looming large in the background is Snæfellsjökull, a glacier that became world famous after author Jules Verne described it in A Journey to the Center of the Earth as the starting point of the terrific journey in the book. Snæfellsjökull lies on top of a volcano and it’s situated in the centre of a national park. The glacier’s peak reaches 1,446 metres and it can be seen from Reykjavik on a clear day. The volcano is considered active, though the last eruption occurred 1,900 years ago. The hotel stands on the beautiful Búðarós shore, and offers the possibility of seal spotting with the ancient, but functional, telescope in the ground floor lounge.


酒店坐落于美丽的 Búðarós 岸边, 在一楼还保存着年代久远的望远镜,至今仍可用来观察远处的海豹。周围的自然景观非常壮丽,有多条徒步小径通向附近景区。。斯奈菲尔冰川位于同名火山之上,正好在半岛上国家公园的中心位置。斯奈菲尔冰川高达1446米,当天朗气清时,还能从雷克雅未克观赏到。斯奈菲尔火山上一次喷发距今已有1900年,但被认定是一座活火山。

A Superb Northern Lights Site

Another asset of the area is the striking view it offers of the iconic aurora borealis. The absence of light-pollution and strong northern lights activity in the area create unique conditions for observing the gorgeous phenomena. You can order a wake-up call from the hotel staff to ensure that you won’t miss out, in case of an unexpected performance from the thrilling spectacle.



Warm Country-Style Getaway

Hótel Búðir is extremely cosy and comfortable, but the house stylists, every single item is arranged meticulously with motherly care. The result is a country-style haven, filled with warmth and suited to make anyone feel at home. There are sitting areas with fire places on each floor, where travellers can mingle and exchange their stories after an eventful day — or simply kick back and relax.


Búðir 酒店气氛舒缓,精心设计的细节、乡村田园的风情、给人宾至如归的亲切感。每层都有休息区,在旅行了一天后,坐在壁炉旁边闲聊放松、互诉旅途见闻,多么惬意。

The rooms are comfy and spacious, equipped with private bathrooms and make for perfect love nests for couples celebrating their love in an unforgettable way. The rooms feature an awe-inspiring view of the gorgeous surroundings and deluxe rooms are situated at the corners and hence have two-way views of the area, and a slightly larger relaxing area. The popular loft rooms have slightly sloping ceilings which provides a feeling of intimacy and you will feel tucked in like a bird in a nest. The entire hotel has Wi-Fi and all the rooms are equipped with traditional modern comforts.

房间宽敞舒适、设施齐全、配有私人卫浴,在房内可欣赏到窗外美景,而豪华客房的空间更大,其位置更能给人不同角度的视觉体验。酒店顶层的客房也颇受欢迎,房顶微微倾斜 (在冬季可减少降雪对房屋的压力),很典型的冰岛式设计,给人温暖私密感。酒店各处均可连接到 Wi-Fi。


The house that hosts the hotel is exceptionally well built, with a strong foundation. The original hotel, built in 1947, unfortunately burned down in 1999. It was then rebuilt in 2001, and though the fire was tragic, the new structure has an obvious new feeling to it, a freshness that isn’t always found in countryside hotels in Iceland. Due to the popularity of the hotel, there are already plans add a whole extra building in the next few years.


Memorable Restaurant

The in-house restaurant features the creations of a great chef’s that designs playful and original dishes, using only the finest local ingredients from the region. The menu is small but offers something for everyone, and the quality ingredients often take on a surprising role in the capable hands of the chefs. The hotel manager, Daði Jörgensson, says that the restaurant is one of the hotel’s main prides, and that despite the small menu he believes the restaurant would compare well with top restaurants in Iceland. Hotel guests love the breakfast buffet, which offers great variety, including freshly baked breads, homemade marmalades and jams, fine cheeses, and quality ham, fresh fruits and cereals.


酒店餐厅主打创意餐点,精选本地新鲜食材,菜单虽不如大酒店般令人眼花缭乱,但每道菜都独具匠心,食材经过厨师的巧手烹饪,变成一道道令人赞不绝口的美食。酒店经理Daði Jörgensson 表示,餐厅一直是酒店灵魂所在,菜单虽小,但口味能媲美冰岛最顶级的餐厅。自助早餐受到客人的青睐,选择丰富,包括新鲜出炉的面包、自家制的果酱、优质奶酪、高品质火腿、新鲜水果和谷物。



Krambúðin is a charming little shop that stands right beside the hotel, and is the only part of the original building to survive the fire. The shop offers various Icelandic handcrafts made by locals, as well as items from Icelandic nature, such as the samples of the characteristic sand, called Gold-sand, found near the hotel. The sand, which is a popular souvenir, got its name from the rare olivine minerals that are mixed with the light coloured shell sand and cause the beach to shimmer when hit by sunlight. The shop is run by the two Valkyries, Sigga and Agnes, who so tenderly care for the hotel.


Krambúðin 纪念品店

Krambúðin 是酒店旁边一间小巧可爱的纪念品店,也是多年前那场大火唯一的“幸存者”。小店出售多种冰岛手工匠人制作的小玩意,包括一种叫“金沙”的纪念品。这种沙子在酒店附近发现的,名字灵感来自稀有的橄榄石矿物质混合浅色贝壳砂在阳光照耀下闪烁的光芒。小店由 Sigga 和 Agnes 经营。


Búðir attracts visitors from around the world with its ideal location, unrivalled customer service and romantic surroundings. It’s no surprise why so many weddings are held at the hotel. Love is in the air at Hótel Búðir!
