Welcome to our hostel

Húsey is the area between the rivers Jökulsá á Dal and Lagarfljót near Héraðsflói bay. It is characterised by rich wildlife. The sandy beaches and river sandbanks are also the home to one of the largest colonies of seals in Iceland. In springtime and autumn reindeers come close to the farm. In Húsey you get in close contact with nature and you can enjoy peace and the quiet environment during the day and the bright summer nights. In autumn and winter you can see the magnificent northern lights.

A really magical place, even if the weather wasn't nice at all. You arrive after a long gravel road, to find a comfy and familiar accommodation. The owner was very kind and the hostel is full optional, from the kitchen with all the tools you can need, to the bathroom and the rooms, warm and colourful. Great place in East Iceland

Bus
Guests who are not driving their own car are picked up at Egilsstaðir or at the byway to Húsey for a reasonable fee on request.
Car
The location on Google Maps is wrong. Húsey is 30 km road no. 1 (main road). To visit Húsey you take road no. 925 from road no. 1 (turning near the bridge over Jökulsá á Dal) then follow road no. 926 to the end; 55 km from Egilsstaðir.
