Location

Þórshöfn, - Langanes, Iceland

Situated on the north-eastern corner of Iceland, the peninsula is virtually void of inhabitants, except for a large bird population. Here you can forget about people, as north is the Kingdom of birds, it is the best place for birds lovers and birdwatching aficionados, a very isolated place. Few steps away to the Arctic Circle and one heartbeat away to amazing nature. Just 24 km from Ytra Lón you’ll find the best conditions in Europe to view the Northern Gannet and other species as well, even the rare Brünnich’s Guillemot.
Visiting the furthest peak of Langanes, named Fontur, is a unique experience in itself and if not for the diligent work of cartographers throughout the centuries you’d be forgiven thinking that it’s the world’s end. Except for a single lighthouse and your travelling companions you’ll be totally free from all signs of civilization.

During your stay
The stay at the hostel is also an experience in itself, as the proprietors also run a sheep farm on location. You can observe the day-to-day life of Icelandic sheep herders and if you’re lucky you can witness and partake in the “sauðburður” season, which is when the sheep start giving birth. Sauðburður usually starts in May.
