Reviews

Best ever vacation

I’ve already left a rave review for this same farm as Stora Asgeirsa, without the hyphen, but I’ll briefly recap here. A wonderful working farm; super host Magnus and his supermom, both amazing farmers. Hot tub; views; sheep; horses; dogs. My favourite vacation experience ever.

Authentic Icelandic Farm

We went with two kids and they absolutely loved it. They got to get close and pet all the animals. The people there showed great hospitality and showed us around the farm. Highly recommend this place!

Our favourite accommodation

This farm stay was our favourite place to stay in Iceland. We were there in early May, during lambing season. We saw 3 babies being born the morning we left. The family that lives here were wonderful hosts, encouraging us to ask any questions we had about the farm or the animals. Our room was clean and comfortable, as was the shared bathroom. I would love to stay here again if I get the chance to go back to Iceland.

Feels like home!

After ten days in Iceland and after having stayed in nine different guest houses and hotels I am sure that this place is the most beautiful one. We haven`t only slept there, we became members of the family. We have been welcomed warmly, we have spent time feeding lambs and did horseback riding. The surrounding is beautiful! The rooms are new and very comfortable. Breakfast was great and we absolutely enjoyed the fresh eggs, the self baked bread and the familiar atmosphere. I am a Magnusson in my heart now 🙂

Location

Stóra-Ásgeirsá is located in North Iceland, around 10 km from the small village of Víðigerði and 27 km from the village of Hvammstangi. We are mid-way between Reykjavík and Akureyri, located around 4 km from the Ring Road.

Hvammstangi village is best-known for its inquisitive seal colonies who spend their days relaxing on the Vatnsnes peninsula. This area, is one of the best places to go seal watching in the country. The village has all necessary services, such as restaurants, museums, cafés, grocery store and a local swimming pool.

You will also find interesting natural attractions in the nearby area, the best known being Hvítserkur and Kolugjúfur.
