Gauksmýri Lodge
Best surprise in NW Iceland!
What a wonderful surprise! We were greeted by Elina who catered to our questions, needs, wants... wonderful. Then our room had a beautiful view of grassy fields, horse pens, and snowy mountains. Breakfast was fresh and substantial, and followed by a tour of the stables and 100+ horses. All topped off with time with the owners' loving Icelandic Sheepdogs. A wonderful stay!!!!
