Midnight sun at Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse

This time of the year can be just beautiful. I took this picture last night from our patio at midnight. Our guests love to stay up late and enjoy the beautiful view from the guesthouse balcony at midnight!

Beautiful summer days at Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse

We have had beautiful weather this week. Our guests have enjoyed different activities as the Golden Circle, going into a glacier, into a volcano or relaxed in different lagoons.
Some have enjoyed walking around in our neighborhood and enjoyed the beautiful nature. One of our guests took this beautiful picture in our neighborhood. Our guesthouse is in the background.

Our hot tub filled with warm geothermal water is our hidden treasure at Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse.
The month of October we are going to celebrate the opening of the Northern Lights season by offering free Icelandic specialities in the hot tub such as to taste hákarl, a fermented shark and a snaps of brennivín which is special Icelandic -occasion alcohol shot, and the traditional drink for the mid-winter feast of Þorrablót.
Why do we like to do it outside?  Well, you will understand it when you find the smell!
The tub will be ready for our guests to use when they return home after their days excursions.

We at Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse are looking forward to offer you to try the shark in the hot tub!

Wedding May 1st

We had the pleasure to have a lovely young couple staying with us, that got married in the beautiful little church next to our guesthouse. The weather was perfect, sunny and calm.
To see their love and happiness was wonderful and makes live so much more colorful. Congratulations Jessica and Jared and thank you for allowing us to take part in your big day.

The Golden Circle with detours!

We are preparing as well as we can for the summer season.
A part of it is to travel around to the places we recommend to our guests to visit on their days excursions from our guesthouse.
Last weekend we took a tour and went to different places on, or near to the Golden Circle. We feel it so much more effective to explain to our guests what to look for, how to find different places and what to expect when we have newly seen or tried things out ourselves.
Among the places we stopped was the farm Efstidalur. They have opened a nice restaurant and a coffee shop. We had a cup of coffee and their homemade ice cream and watched at the same time the cows milked through a window in the coffee shop. Exciting!
I had forgotten how beautiful the waterfall Faxi is. A perfect place to have a picnic.

A visit to the Secret Lagoon was very relaxing and a new experience for us. It is a perfect place to stop at and spend

1-2 hours floating around,  after seeing the main attractions at the Golden Circle.

Dancing Northern Lights over Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse

The Northern Lights are often just beautiful over our heads, like last night when they were just lovely.
Some nights ago, when they danced  all over the sky, we had a young couple from USA staying with us. They are so nice to give me permission to share their pictures they took at our farm that night on my blog.  Thank you so much Julie and Tony.

Exciting!

A taste of hákarl (rotten Shark)

To have a taste of hákarl ( a rotten shark) is something we often offer our guests. Usually we bring it to our guests, while they are in the outside hot tub. Why do we like to do it outside? You will understand it when you find the smell! Most of our guests have never taste it before and are not sure if they like the taste but love to get the opportunity to try out this Icelandic tradition
