Iceland, the land of fire and ice, home to several glaciers, exploding geysers and numerous volcanoes, all of which mesmerise the masses of tourists that flock to the country every year.
The west of Iceland is a favourite amongst tourists, especially the Snaefellsnes peninsula as it is extremely diverse and boasts many of Iceland’s best sceneries including the beautiful glacier-topped Snaefellsjokull volcano.
Hotel Budir, just a short drive from Iceland’s capital city, Reykjavik, is situated on the southwestern shores of the Snaefellsnes peninsula. The hotel sits in a lava field and due to the hotel’s location, guests have an impressive view of the Snaefellsjokull glacier volcano and the Budir-estuary.
Hotel Budir’s restaurant has been described as “The Mecca of Icelandic cooking”, due to its one-of-a-kind menu and exquisite cuisine. The seasonal menu also takes advantage of fresh local produce like seafood and fish from neighbouring villages.
In addition, the area accommodates many things to do such as sailing, horse riding, hiking, golf and glacier tours. Staff at Hotel Budir can help you find activities and organise leisure time with a wide variety of tours, including sightseeing helicopter trips, seatours, fly fishing, bus-tours and mountain-jeep-safaris.
