Dear guests,

 Firstly, we want send you our best wishes in these uncertain times and hope you and your loved ones are safe. We are reaching out to tell you a bit about the current situation in Iceland and what we are doing at Hotel Aldan, Hotel Snæfell and The School to support you and your travel plans to Seyðisfjördur.

Current status in Iceland

In Iceland we have managed to fight back and „flatten the curve“ with only 2 new Covid cases in the last week. Almost 10% of the nation has been through quarantine and 17% been tested. Icelanders are following the guidelines of our strong health care system and the size and density of the population helps bring the contagion down, with only 3,5 people per km2.

The 15th of June the government plans to open up and are cancelling the rules of a 14 days quarantine when arriving from abroad but testing people for Covid on arrival.

We are looking forward welcoming you

We are a family run company that since 2003 has renovated old historical buildings and been able to give those houses a new role serving our guests with food and offering lodging with a personal and historical twist. Besides having our hotels and apartments open we will also open up our restaurants this summer. Aldan restaurant and café will be open all days serving breakfast, dish of the day, Icelandic Tapas and drinks. Our well received sushi restaurant; Norð-Austur, will also be offering Sushi and Japanese dishes made from the best ingredients the region has to offer – from the middle of June and at least 4 days a week.
