From Sunnuberg Guesthouse, the Town is Easily Accessible
I arrive in Hofsós, where fog has just descended, as Icelandic weather changes so quickly, shrouding the town with an aura of mystery. It can seem daunting. Sunnuberg Guesthouse is a welcome sight. It has four double rooms and one single room, all with en suite bathrooms, a shared living room that has a small refrigerator to store snacks, and a microwave for a quick bite to eat.
A short walk from the guesthouse is the new pool designed by Sigríður Sigþórsdóttir, the same architect who designed the Blue Lagoon. It opened just over a year ago and attracts many visitors to the small town. The pool is built into the land, with grass covering a roof that you can walk over and comfortably stand on to see the area around it.
After a wonderful night’s sleep, a morning coffee and breakfast, the fog has lifted, the sun is out again and I’m off to discover the Icelandic Emigration Centre or take a dip in the pool overlooking the fjord. It’s good to have the guesthouse as my base as I explore the town and its many interesting places.Sunnuberg
