Between Sheer Mountains and the Blue Sea

Hotel Bláfell is the perfect romantic getaway; a charming, wooden building, located in the village of Breiðdalsvík in eastern Iceland. Surrounded by steep, high, magnificent mountains on the one side and the majestic, rolling sea on the other, it is just the place to unwind on a cozy fireside evening.

The hotel opened in 1982, when tourism hardly existed in Iceland, and as visitors began to discover the splendour of the Icelandic countryside, the hotel became a fast favourite among those in the know. Located right in the heart of Breiðdalsvík, Hotel Bláafell is run by Friðrik Arnason with his wife Hrafnhildur Hafsteinsdottir and it has the warm atmosphere of a family-run inn.

The Breiðdalur area is known for its nice weather, numerous walking paths and beautiful autumn colours; an ideal vacation spot for the autumn season. The friendly and welcoming hotel staff ensure that guests feel comfortable.

Bláfell is a prominent building in the village, the dark wood on the exterior and its vibrant blue roof make the hotel quite distinctive from the outside. However, it is the inside that is particularly charming, the rustic wood interior giving the nice feeling of actually being out of town, in the middle of nature. Each of the 25 rooms is equipped with a private bathroom, TV and telephone.

The rooms come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from single rooms to family rooms. A quaint, comfortable sitting room with an open fire is ideal for enjoying a pleasurable moment whether relaxing after a day exploring the local area, sitting with friends or just reading a good book. To perfect the relaxation, Hotel Bláfell offers its guests a sauna in which to wind down.

If you are looking for a romantic weekend, a deluxe room in the log house is ideal. For a big family with energetic children, there is enough space both inside the hotel itself and outdoors along the vast black beach to run and play - after which, a nice cup of hot chocolate by the hearth will be just the thing! Indeed, the hotel has been carefully and thoughtfully designed to include something for everyone.

The village of Breiðdalsvík is calm and its inhabitants friendly; guests will surely get the feeling of countryside living, yet almost every service is conveniently within walking distance. In addition, the region offers plenty of activities that make the most of the beautiful, natural surroundings. Rockcollecting amongst the beautiful hyalite formations in the south of the valley or fishing in one of the three local rivers are just two of the many activities guests can enjoy. When relaxing in the sauna and rounding off the evening by the fireplace after such a day, guests might just discover what life is all about.

Hotel Bláfell also has its own restaurant, proudly serving up the finest local ingredients. Bláfell takes pride in serving hearty traditional meals; the lamb, beef and vegetables are supplied from nearby farms and the seafood is brought in by local fishermen. Every loaf of bread and cake is home-baked. Even the berries used in the desserts are hand-picked by the hotel staff. Hotel Bláfell offers a variety of menus for a uniquely Icelandic culinary treat.

A stay at Hotel Bláfell is a must for any journey along Iceland’s east coast. Guests will be warmed by the hospitality and enthralled by the natural beauty. Friðrik, Hrafnhildur and their staff will be sure that every visit is a memorable one.
