We are a family of five, Heiða (50), Bjarni (51) and our daughters, Anna (23), María (21) and Bríet Brá (14). In and around our home we also have three cats…Dúskur, Hrefna and Lotta.
Heiða is born in Dalvík but Bjarni is born in Grenivík on the opposite side of the fjord. We are busy most of the time taking care of our hostel and cottages as well as our little Café/bar "Gísli, Eiríkur, Helgi" but Heiða also makes decorations for weddings, birthdays and funerals and Bjarni also works as a fisherman on various trawlers and boats.
We live in Vegamót, which is our house, situated at the south entrance of Dalvík. A lot of houses in Dalvík, like in other towns and villages in Iceland, have names...and not always a real postal address! Around 70 homes in Dalvík have names and some of them are used as post adresses...like our home at Vegamót. Vegamót means Crossroads in english.We have been running our little company for five years now, providing accommodation in our Dalvík hostel, Gimli, three cottages and the "Old farm house". The cottages and the Old farm house are situated by our house Vegamót but Gimli is in the center of Dalvík.
From April to September we also run the local skihut which is a located at the ski area above Dalvík.
We are a part of “HiHostel International” and accommodation can be booked at the HiHostel pages like Photos can be found on So far we are very happy with the feedback we get and we love having guests. Our hostel has been rated No 1 HiHostel in the world of 2013 by our HiHostel guests!
