Helga, one of the hosts at Fljotsdalsgrund Guesthouse, is also a farmer and a housewife. She has cooked for her family since she and her husband founded their home in the 1970s, at the nearby farm Valþjófsstaður.
The food served at the Guesthouse is based on the countryside cuisine and dishes Helga has served at her family table for years. For breakfast maybe you will get some delicious home made jam; or for dinner, a hearty soup or bacalao waffles.

Dinner can be ordered in advance in the period June-August. Outside that period you can send us a line to check if Helga is around to cook for you!
