Get close to nature and history at the very small village, Borðeyri. Tangahus guesthouse is few meters from the sea. Looking out of the windows you may feel like being on board a boat. The view from windows heading towards north is fantastic, especially at sunset in the summer time. During winter time our guests often see beautiful northern lights. Guests love to take walk to the beach and listen to the mysterious sound of the sea and seabirds. If you are lucky you can also see seals!

De ruimte
Get close to nature and history at the very small village, Borðeyri. It might even be the smallest one in Iceland,but it has a big story about commerce and Danish merchants. Also took many Icelanders a ship from Borðeyri to Canada in the years before 1900. The oldest house in the village is Riishús, a former store, build in 1862, during the summer time it is open. There is a little coffee-house, craft and a secondhand store. Tangahus guesthouse is only few meters from the sea, probably as close to the see as possible building a house. Tangahus was built 1928 as a warehouse and renewed during the year 2004-2008 as a guesthouse. The owners since 2004 are Ásdís and Inga. (Ásdís is Inga´s mother-in-law).Ásdís is former bank employee and housewife and Inga is a farmer,housewife and has finished baccalaureus atrium in tourism.
We are not always on site, but you can easily reach us by phone (our numbers on the white main door). We will give you the number to the locker so you can get the key. Usually we do that by mail one week before arrival.
In the kitchen is always coffee and tea for our guests, included in the price. There is a WiFi in the house.
The water in Iceland is very clean, usually you can drink it right from the tap. The hot water comes from geothermal heat about 2 kilometers away. Guests may find it a strange smell but it is normal. For the coffee machine, please use the cold water.

Waar je zult verblijven

Borðeyri, Westfjords, IJsland

From Borðeyri you can take many daytours.There are 43 km to the village Hvammstangi which is friendly and quiet with gas station, grocery store, restaurants, arts- and craftstores, swimming pool, wool factory with clothes outlet, health care center, coffee house, horse rental and such things. In Hvammstangi you can also find the Icelandic Seal Center as well as interesting activities, such as seal watching boat tours. From Hvammstangi you can drive a ring road, about 80 kilometers, road number 711, Vatnsnesvegur (gravel road). It is popular to go this way and see seals in their natural surroundings and also to see Hvítserk, a 15 meters high monolith or sea-stack. It looks like an animal of some sort, an elephant or a rhino - or even a dinosaurs drinking. It is quite spectacular. Especially in the summertime, when you will find a lot of fulmar nesting on it, so it seems to be alive. It is half-white from their excrement, thus the name Hvítserkur - "hvít-" meaning white and "-serkur" meaning a long shirt. The legend tell us that Hvítserkur is a petrified troll. The troll lived in Strandir in the Wesfjords and wanted to tear down the bells at Þingeyraklaustur convent. The Icelandic trolls are not Christian and don't like the sound or sight of churches or church-bells. Fortunately, the troll got caught by daylight and as we all know trolls turn into a stone by daylight.
