Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday chalet in West - The Glacier Lodge

The Glacier Lodge offers magnificent views of Snaefellsjokull to the north and a panorama across Faxafloi bay to the south. Built in 2010 and one of a small group of similar properties, this is a modern self-catering cottage of 100 sqm which can comfortably accommodate six adults.

Just a two hour drive from Reykjavik, this home away from home, is the perfect base from which to explore one of Iceland's most celebrated regions - the Snaefellsnes Peninsula.

South facing and with a light open plan design, the lodge sleeps up to eight people in three second floor bedrooms (one with a double bed and two with twins) and a fold out double sofa-bed located in the lounge. There is a fully equipped modern kitchen, plus a dining area.

- Private bathroom

- Tea and coffee making facilities

- Fridge

- Dishwasher

Away from light pollution and with vast open skies, Glacier Lodge is in an excellent position for watching displays of the aurora borealis should they occur during your stay.

With the region's natural beauty on your doorstep, including the striking sea stacks of Arnarstapi, there are plenty of things to see and do from a variety of hiking trails, sailing excursions and whale and bird watching opportunities, to activities on and around nearby Snaefellsjokull glacier - including snowmobile.

Exploring the West (of Iceland)

  • 5 of 5

We we're on our 2nd visit to Iceland as the first visit took us to the southern to eastern part of Iceland. This time we decided to visit the North side (Akureyri) and then we drove down to visit the west side. We stayed here and it was perfect. It was right on the ocean which was a nice benefit and we couldn't ask for anything better as our home base on the west side.

You will not go wrong here at all for you visit and it was very close to the highway. We also ate at Hotel Hellnar which is very close by.

Please note: The shape of the lodge is such that it is necessary for the stairs between the two levels to ascend/descend steeply with a split step design. It is therefore not suitable for those with low levels of mobility or very young children.
