    This hostel is really out in the middle of nowhere, miles down a dirt road. Incredibly isolated, but worth the drive. Amazingly beautiful setting in the open open field near the confluence of two rivers flowing to the sea. Best thing here is riding the Icelandic horses. Small rooms, no sink in the room. No water pressure. Don't plan a shower here! We enjoyed the European women who were spending a week riding.

    At last, our hostel!

    I could have ridden them all day. These beautiful, gentle, friendly horses are unique to Iceland. People come from all over the world to ride them. I would come back just to ride them again!!

    This was the first hostel where we actually met some other women travelers. These women from Germany, Switzerland and France came to spend the week …

    This morning, we decided to go to a small place for a Viking breakfast. But first, we need to explore the last of Hofn before we could have breakfast and coffee! The breakfast was disappointing, but we walked around the area (site for some Viking movies); then we set off to explore the countryside between Hofn and our next hostel, in Husey.

    ... is on private property, even though all the trails and other amenities were put in by the government. The law in Iceland requires this type of site to be open to the public for free, but apparently the property owner here set up a fence and turnstyle and was charging people to enter--up to a few days before we arrived, when the government showed up and made them ...

    ... ll behave I promise.” Yes the sheep have been a lot of fun and have entertained us numerous times. One driving note there is not a lot of road kills along the road for as often as we’ve seen sheep crossing the road we’ve only seen one dead road kill sheep.

    The Icelandic horses are also beautiful creatures. We haven’t seen as many since coming eastward but this morning we were rewarded ...

    ... Today is a travel day. We do take a side trip to the town of Seydisfjordur which is a terminus for the ferry heading to the Faroe Islands and Denmark. Our guide has arranged for us to have hot chocolate at the local hotel. It's a pleasant town. The route back to the hotel is quite steep and we encounter heavy fog most of the way. We are staying at another Iceland Air Hotel which ...
