Solarborg Hotel (Tindastoll) is an annex to Tindastoll Hotel. The hotel is a 3 star hotel with an old romantic style. The annex is a new addition to Hotel Tindastoll and is located next to the hotel, however, reception and breakfast facilities are in the hotel itself. This two storey house is named Solarborg and was built in 1942 and has recently been renovated in May 2012 to include contemporary chic decor, giving a more modern feel than Hotel Tindastoll. Here we have 9 comfortable rooms, all with private facilities and free wifi. Small hot tub in the back garden.
Located in a fertile valley along the southwestern shore of Skagafjordur Fjord, lies the friendly coastal town of Saudarkrokur. It is the largest town in the Skagafjordur district which has settlement roots dating back to 1871 although the coast here was featured in the ancient Grettir’s Saga. The nearby sheer sided Drangey Island is where Grettir spent his last years as an outlaw and Grettislaug, a lovely seaside thermal bathing pool, is where he recovered after a long swim in the icy ocean.
From Sauðárkrókur there's a short boat trip to Drangey Island. Both in Skagafjordur fjord and Skagi peninsula there are plenty of sport fishing opportunities. During winter many visit mt. Tindastoll for skiing. Skagafjordur fjord hosts numerous historic sites and in Hegranes, just outside Saudárkrókur, there has been in recent years archeological excavation where viking graves were discovered.
