Welcome to Kaffi Klara

Kaffi Klara is housed in the old post office in Ólafsfjörður, a historic house in the heart of Ólafsfjörður that was renovated in 2013 and furnished as a café and guesthouse. Kaffi Klara is a cozy and homely café where the emphasis is on taking good care of the guests, using local ingredients, cooking the food as much as possible from scratch and creating a dining experience. The guesthouse is on the upper floor of Kaffi Klara. Kaffi Klara is a member of the Arctic Coast Way.


Ólafsfjörður is located on the Norðurstrandarleið, between Dalvík and Siglufjörður. Next to Kaffi Klara is the Ólafsfjörður museum, Pálshús which houses the natural history museum, Ólafsfjarðarstofa and sets up various exhibitions about the area. Fjallabyggð’s swimming pool is 300 meters away and there is a fun playground right next door. From the pier in Ólafsfjörður you can fish, Fairytale at Sea has jet rides and Hotel Brimnes rents out kayaks. You can walk or cycle around Ólafsfjarðarvatn, down to Ósbrekkusandur and beyond Kleifar. Weekly walks organized by Ferðafélag Trölli take place in the summer every Tuesday at 17.00 but in addition there is a walk one Saturday a month. Lágheiði is a very beautiful route that runs from Ólafsfjörður to Fljótin. It is a short walk to Siglufjörður through the Héðinsfjörður tunnel. See further information about Fjallabyggð under Information Center.


Our guesthouse is located on the upper floor of Kaffi Klara, in the center of Ólafsfjörður. There are 5 rooms, 1 bathroom and one extra toilet. We have 2 large and nice rooms with space for 4. Both rooms are ideal for families. In addition we have 2 double rooms and one single room. The guesthouse is ideal for large families, for walking or cycling groups who want to enjoy nature on Tröllaskagi or for golfers. Contact us for a quote on accommodation and food. This summer there will be fun offers for accommodation and half board. The offers will come in here in the near future
