Við Lónið – guesthouse, is located in Seydisfjordur´s historic heart, overlooking the picturesque mountains, town centre and the unique lagoon. The house was built in 1907 by Tryggvi Gudmundsson. It´s one of the beautiful ready-made kit form houses, imported from Norway in the early 19th century. In the statuesque house, Tryggvi lived with his family and ran a little shop in a corner on the first floor. His daughter, Nina Tryggvadottir was born there and she became one of Iceland’s most renowned artists.
The house is a landmark in Seyðisfjörður´s shopping and service history. It´s taken on many different roles, f.ex. clothing and convenience store, art studio, home decor shop, café and it was the first diner in town to sell burgers and fries.
