Anyone that knows me knows I love food, and one meal I always like to do properly is breakfast.

I had carried, chopped down (using a rock, the ground's inclination and my feet) and stored a wood board found on the beach the night …
... is no land mass between Iceland and Antarctica, I have to check that on a globe when I get home. The reason I say this is the weather here is very unpredictable and can be very harsh just like the southern parts of the planet.

TravelPod Member ReviewsAsgardur Guesthouse Höfn
We stayed in one of the cabins, very cosy and warm and the 2 toilets was a great thing. The main guest house is also very cool, fully equipped kitchen was definitively a plus.

Would definitively recommend to any travellers or people looking to explore the area!
