Sæberg, Iceland, is an incredibly small town along the Highway One in the northwestern part of the Ring Road. It is one of those blink-and-you-will-miss-it affairs. If you do manage to catch it, what you will find is a handful of white buildings with red roofs sat along the fjordland.
Your options for hostels in Sæberg, Iceland will place you among these red-roofed buildings, and if you choose to stay here it will not take you long to find it, is as there are so few buildings. If you are needing fuel or any supplies then you will not find very much here. You will need to go to the nearest larger town, Blonduos, to get fuel, food at the supermarket, or money at the bank. It is a nice place to stop off and enjoy some of the peace and serenity that Iceland has to offer on your journey, but difficult to get to if you are traveling on a local bus instead of in a car. If you have a car, then you are pretty well good to go. It is also nicely situated, approximately halfway between Reykjavik and Akureyri, which makes it a great pit stop for the long road between these two destinations.
Exploring around the region here, if you are heading further south of Sæberg, you'll find the massive lava fields and the crater at Grabrok and the world's most powerful hot spring at Deildartunguhver. Off a side road from here you can also head up and visit the Husafell area with the Barnafoss Waterfall. Heading north, you can visit the town of Osar right up on the tip of the peninsula. There are a few interesting things to see and do in Blonduos and there is also a pretty cool museum with some traditional old houses at Glaumbær a little bit further along.
