Fossatún is located so close to the river bank of Grimsa-River,a top salmon fishing river, by Troll Waterfalls and in the center of the beautiful Borgarfjordur. The pods are situated by a service house with hot tubs, changing rooms showers and toilet

My live revolved around music and my vinyl record collection is my witness. I am also a writer of troll books - inspired by our location and The Troll Waterfalls. Me and my wife are the heart and soul of Fossatún and have created our special menu.
