Hotel Budir Snaefellsnes
First opened on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula in 1948, the Hotel Budir was completely burnt down in 2001, before reopening two years later. Far removed from any light pollution, it has long been a favourite base for spotting the Northern Lights. Its homely rooms feature traditional furnishings, earthy colour tones and prints of Icelandic wildlife. The restaurant hauls unusual treats such as ling (Atlantic cod) on to plates each night alongside Icelandic moss and kale.
