In January 2019 Guðrún and Valur sold their beautiful farm and Guesthouse to us the lucky family of 6 (soon 7). We feel that we hit the jack pot here, the Guesthouse is wonderful and the surroundings offer the best view in the valley plus we now have a place to put all our animals! It is our hope that we can run the Guesthouse close to how great the former owners run it and that the farm life will treat us nice!
We look forward to the future and to meet all our new guests.

The newest addition to our guesthouse is working well and sure is making it nicer for our guests to wait for and look at the Northern Lights. The pictures we took the day we finished the project show how cosy it can be!
We have had many beautiful Northern Lights nights already this season, and our guests appreciate a lot to have a shelter to be in, now when the nights are getting colder and sometimes quite windy.
We do all we can to help our guests to get to see the Northern Lights. We even wake them up if the lights appear after bedtime!

We are honored when our guests decide to spend their very special days in life here.
Recently stayed with us a lovely Danish family. They told us their 25 years wedding anniversary was the next day.
We knew it is a big day in the Danish culture. We wanted to do something special for them.
Valur went to Dalsgardur the rose farm in our valley and bought 25 red roses and I baked a french chocolate cake.
Life is wonderful, enjoy the day.
We thoroughly have enjoyed every day since we opened our guesthouse.
We are so thankful to all our wonderful guests for writing nice things about their stay, that have made us receive awards from TripAdvisor, all the 6 years since we opened Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse.
We feel honored and very thankful.
Life is wonderful!
for Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse
This week we had a very beautiful Northern Lights show at Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse.
As I saw a bit of them the night before, I set my alarm at 1 am and there they were, even it was just August 19th!
I rushed to the Guesthouse and woke up our guests, so they could enjoy the show.
Our new Northern Lights shelter came in good use, the guests could stand inside enjoying the show.
We have never seen them in August before!
Life is wonderful at our farm.
at Minna- Mosfell Guesthouse.
Earlier this month we took in use a new addition to our Guesthouse.
It is a shelter over the patio facing the Northern lights directions!
It will be very nice to sit out there on sunny days, but we built it mostly with the Northern Lights in mind!
Now our guests do not have to stand outside on cold winter evening and nights waiting for the Northern Lights or enjoying them dancing above our farm.
Now they can stand in a shelter, away from the wind and enjoying them!
Life is wonderful.

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
We are of course very of proud of this announcement we got from TripAdvisor.
We want to send our warmest greetings and thanks to all our wonderful guests, that have ranked us so high in their reviews.
Have a wonderful day!

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.
