Húsey is 60 km north of Egilsstaðir and located between two glacial rivers, the Jökulsá á Brú and the LagarfIjót. The Húsey Farm offers a wonderful view of the surrounding hills and endless opportunities for excursions to discover Iceland's untouched nature.
All this makes Húsey an ideal resort to stay throughout your vacation or for just a few days. The Youth Hostel in what we call the "Old Farm" has been renovated and has beds as well as berths for visitors bringing their own sleeping bags. There is a recreation room for guests and a shared kitchen where meals can be prepared. Húsey is open all the year round.
English is also spoken at Húsey.
Húsey is very easy to get to. Icelandair operates regular flights from Reykjavik to Egilsstaðir. From Akureyri to Egilsstaðir there are buses.
We are happy to collect our guests from Egilsstaðir, the nearest major traffic junction. To the Norröna ferry in Seyðisfjörður is a distance of 85km.
