THE KIÐAGIL GUESTHOUSE takes its name from a tributary gully far to the south along Skjálfandafljót river. According to legend this was regarded as the border between wilderness and human habitation. Kiðagil hostel and community centre is located at a mid point in the Bárðardalur valley and offers an easy commute to the Svartárkot farm, as well as to nearby areas of interest, such as Lake Mývatn, the town of Húsavík and the Goðafoss waterfalls. Because of its history as a boarding school it has a built-in classroom, a large kitchen/dining room and sleeps up to 35 people, making it highly suitable for lectures and gatherings.
