Icelandic Wilderness Center

This unique nature retreat in Iceland’s remote east (around 31 miles from Egilsstaðir) offers an alluring and comprehensive mix of services that span renovated farmhouse accommodation, a specially curated exhibition on Icelandic wilderness history and nature, activities like horseback riding and hiking, plus an array of tours—including guided and tailor-made—that range from easy two-hour strolls to more challenging daylong explorations. Surrounded by valleys, a glacier, and other gorgeous Icelandic landscape to explore, the welcoming, family-run farmhouse—rebuilt in a traditional, rustic style—has singles, doubles, dorms, and family rooms on offer, sheep and other animals to befriend, and a locally sourced menu with delicious breads, cakes, and cookies, all freshly baked in the owners’ kitchen.
