Stay in Style
Fall in love with Iceland in this corner of paradise
Ninety-five kilometres north of Reykjavik, lies a 65 hectare tract of birch-covered land on the banks of the peaceful Norðurá river.
It’s a place where Icelanders go to get away from the stress of city life, and is a favourite haunt of families, in particular.
Fifty-six rustic, self-contained cottages are scattered throughout the park-like grounds, some sleeping 6 to 8, while others are ideal for couples, but all come with the usual accoutrement of the summer cottage life-style, an inviting hot tub and grill out on the deck.
All in all, Munaðarnes can accommodate up to 300 guests, year-round, making this an unparalleled place for family reunions, tour groups and conferences.

Making it relaxing and fun

The heart and soul of Munaðarnes lies at the spacious café-restaurant that seats over 100 guests and where managers Stefanía and her husband Þór are busy making sure that visitors are well taken care of and even entertained throughout their stay. I met them on the terrace where we savoured an organic Sumatran coffee and enjoyed the warm September sun.
Thoroughly loving what they do, Stefanía and Þór have no regrets about leaving Reykjavik and have no plans to resume their life there any time soon. It’s not hard to see why.
The energetic couple put their all into making Munaðarnes a genuinely fun and friendly place to stay, with lots of activities for guests, such as bingo, karaoke, a Sunday afternoon cake buffet, guided nature walks, bouncy castles for the kids and even an Indian curry night.
On cool summer evenings, you can cosy up on the deck in colourful wraps, while the kids play in the playground or have a round of mini-golf just outside the door, all of which contribute to Munaðarnes’ popularity as the ‘go-to’ place for families with children of all ages.

An original menu with local ingredients
Munaðarnes Restaurant prides itself on several original dishes such as savoury crêpes filled with grilled chicken, smoked lamb or trout, with rice and fresh vegetables. The succulent Limousin-Galloway beef, which comes straight from a nearby farm, is used in all of Munaðarnes’ home-style burgers and steaks.
A specialty of the house is the hearty Icelandic goat meat hamburger which is fast gaining favour and is a real must to try. Lastly, a variety of home-baked cakes and desserts served with excellent fair-trade coffee rounds off your meal.  
Reading through the guest-book, I was impressed with the many positive comments from visitors. As one young person so aptly put it, “This is the place where I fell in love with Iceland”–a fitting sentiment that pretty much sums up the ‘Munaðarnes experience’.
