Summer holiday on the Snaefellsnes peninsula in Iceland with Hotel Budir

Hotel Budir, just a short drive from Iceland’s capital city, Reykjavik, is situated on the southwestern shores of the Snaefellsnes peninsula – a perfect place for a holiday in Iceland this summer.

Ideally located, the Snaefellsnes area is a favourite amongst tourists, especially as it is extremely diverse and boasts many of Iceland’s best sceneries including the beautiful glacier-topped Snaefellsjokull volcano.

The Iceland hotel sits in a lava field and due to its location, guests have an impressive view of the Snaefellsjokull glacier volcano and the Budir-estuary, which meanders into the vast Faxafloi-Bay where a number of seals reside.

The hotel’s restaurant has been described as “The Mecca of Icelandic cooking”, due to its one-of-a-kind menu and exquisite cuisine. The seasonal menu also takes advantage of fresh local produce like seafood and fish from neighbouring villages such as Stykkisholmur, Olafsvik and Borgarnes.

The snaefellsnes area provides an abundance of opportunities to partake in, including sailing, horse riding, hiking, golf and glacier tours. Staff at Hotel Budir can help you find activities and organise leisure time with a wide variety of tours, including sightseeing helicopter trips, seatours, fly fishing, bus-tours and mountain-jeep-safaris.
