Stayed in Raufarhofn for one night while traveling the entire ring road. Our kiddo had wanted to stay there because it was the best chance for northern lights viewing, without realizing there are 12 hours of daylight in June. There isn't anything to do in...More

This self-catering guesthouse appears to be new, but it's of good quality. The rooms are clean and there's a kitchen that guest can make use of. There is a nice view of the harbour and some of the rooms have views of the Arctic Henge...More

About
Description
Nest Guesthouse is quietly located in the northern fishing village of Raufarhofn – the Arctic Circle Village. Ideal for a peaceful stay to enjoy walks, fishing and the midnight sun at the edge of the More arctic. The area around The Nest, Melrakkasletta plain is renowned for the natural splendour of its spring and summer nights, a large number of lakes and rich bird life. Ideal location for the spectacular northern lights display in the winter months. At the northern extremity of the plain is Hraunhafnartangi point, Iceland’s northernmost extent. The Arctic Henge at Raufarhofn is under construction; a huge stone structure with allusions to mythology and folklore, designed to interact with the unique natural light. Less
