Welcome to Dalakot Búðardal
Dalakot is a small guesthouse in an old house that has hosted guests since the mid-20th century. In 2013 the young couple Anna Sigríður Grétarsdóttir and Pálmi Jóhannsson bought the guesthouse and gave it the name Dalakot. Since then they have worked hard on renovation of the house and the garden and they are still working.
The guesthouse has 9 rooms with accommodation for 19 people. They also have a small house by the beach that sleeps 6 people and is suitable for smaller groups or a family.
A restaurant and a bar is also located in the house where pizzas and hamburgers are the main dishes of the menu but also offers a few specials.
Búðardalur is a small village by the fjord Hvammsfjörður and is the only village in the region Dalabyggð. Dalabyggð, or Dalir as we like to call it, is an agricultural area and one of the biggest cheese production of the country is located in the village. Búðardalur was largely built around that production in the 1960‘s and 70‘s.
Dalir has a rich history were some of the most known protagonists from the Icelandic Sagas lived in here. We have a rich history community and we are proud of our heritage that we can trace to the Norwegian Vikings and an Irish princess. The past is hidden in every corner, placenames and farmnames. The untouched and beautiful nature is widely concealed such as the breathtaking view over the uncountable islands on Breiðafjörður and the small population makes the area unique.
From Búðardalur you can visit the next regions within an hour driving to all directions, such as Borgarfjörður, Western Húnaþing, Westfjords and Snæfellsnes.
