Homemade cooking right on the Ring Road
Víðigerði guesthouse is one of the most conveniently located and affordable accommodations in Iceland set just on the left side of the main ring road, past Hvammstangi. On the upper floor it has 8 double r
ooms that share private facilities and on the lower floor, a diner and a small store selling snacks and various goods. This summer there will be a fenced off playground in the back garden as well as tables for dining or having a drink outside.
The owner, Karen, who runs the guesthouse with her husband and daughter, says that in her experience, tourists really love Icelandic food and therefore she wants to give guests a taste of the way Icelanders eat at home. For breakfast, she serves popular Icelandic milk products like skyr as well as toast and cereal. She uses ingredients from local farmers and the nearby regions for her cooking that consists of classic national dishes, like fish with butter and potatoes and the ever popular meat-soup which will be served every day this summer. Made out of lamb and fresh vegetables it’s as wholesome as it is tasty and just about everybody’s favourite dish. Prices are more than reasonable since Karen is determined to make Víðigerði a place where families can come and eat a good meal without much expense. She also has offers for groups.
