Letter from our guests

A letter from our guests

On a rainy day this week I found this letter on the table in our guesthouse after a lovely family left. They had stayed with us for some days.
Even it was rainy outside it brought sunshine in my mind reading it!
Dear family, thank you so much. I hope to see you again before to long.
All my wonderful guests make me love my work

“Þorra” food at Minna-Mosfell

Now is the time for Þorrablót,in Iceland,  a midwinter Viking feast which is an old tradition, when we eat þorramat, which is an old traditional food, that most people just eat at this time of the year.

Þorrablót can be anything from an informal dinner at home with family and friends up to a big event with dinner, offering this kind of food and a dance afterwards.

Last weekend we had our friends over for Þorrablót in our home.

Tonight,  I offered our nice guests staying with us this week, to taste some of the food, I still have left, kept in lactic acid.  Such as sheep head pâté, whale and pressed ram testicles that all has been left for weeks in lactic acid to get the right taste!

I also offered them “harðfisk” wich is dried fish, we love with some butter.

Last but not least, I offered them to taste our wonderful fermented shark with “Brennivín” the Icelandic snaps,  that is good along with the shark!

Have a wonderful weekend.

Good summer at Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse

The summer has been so good here at Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse.
We have been fully booked almost everyday and the weather has been as good as it can get most days.
We have been able to dry our duvet covers and sheets outside most days. I love the fresh smell of it, when we take it from the clotheslines!

New Year greetings from Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse

We send you all our best New Year greetings.

We are both well and looking forward to coming season with every day getting a little bit longer.
Even it is just January 13th we can easily feel/see the difference from day to day how the daylight comes earlier and lasts a little bit longer in the afternoon.
We took a little break in November and enjoyed sunny days in Florida. It was wonderful to relax a little before the Christmas season.

At Christmas we had wonderful family staying at our guesthouse. They decided to spend the Christmas together in Iceland as a part of the family lives in Germany and a part in USA.
Over the New Year another wonderful family from the USA stayed here.  We took out our sleds for the kids so they could enjoy sliding down our hills. What a fun they had playing in the snow for the first time in their lives!
Last night we had one of the most beautiful Northern Lights shows we get here, the danced exciting dances over our farm in all different colours.
Our guests who are leaving Iceland to day could not have had more exciting last night in Iceland, right here at Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse!

It is a beautiful day today, a perfect winter day to be outside and enjoy the beauty of the country.

Hope your day will be wonderful!
Take care until next


Early January morning at Minna Mosfell.
