Ocean Front Row View- Northern lights cottage- NO 1.

You are in a National Park area- This is the most beautiful part of Iceland -With its glistening white cone visible from Reykjavík on a clear day, Snæfellsjökull is the most potent and enduring symbol of Snæfellsnes. If the glacier weren't there, however, the manifold wonders of Snæfellsnes would stand out just the same. Snæfellsjökull, (1,446 m) an ancient cone volcano, one of finest mountains in Iceland. An impressive sight from as far away as Reykjavík, from where it can be seen in clear weather, seeming to rise from the sea. Many prehistoric eruptions took place in the glacier-covered crater at its peak, and its slopes are covered with lava. The glacier is fairly easy to climb, about 4-6 hours to the highest peak, Þúfur. At the eastern base is a Tourist Association hut, now in ruins. The glacier dominates the area, the western part of which is covered with lava and known as “under the glacier”. In Jules Verne’s novel, A Journey to the Centre of the Earth.

Loved this place!!

  • 5 of 5

So, my fiancee and I decided that Iceland was going to be the place we eloped and, we are so happy we did! Let me say, the town of Hellnar is just perfect. From the breathtaking views to the people we encountered... it was all just perfect. The house was amazing as were the owners we rented from... I would love to visit again!

A dream becoming true in Hellnar

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Hellnar is something we will never forget. Although in winter period and only about 5 hours daylight, the scenery is always breathtaking. The view from the cottage is overwhelming. The cottage is very well organised and cozy. A good shower, a good, well equipped kitchen, a table for 4 and a very good couch for at least 4 is provided. On the first floor there are 2 excellent beds in separate rooms in cozy designed rooms. The temperature in the cottage is always about 20 degrees. Also WiFi, tv, ps3 is provided in the cottage. We, 2 adults and 2 kids aged 8 and 10; travel a lot, but this cottage and country is something we will never forget. The view of the glacier next to you is almost unbelievable. Groceries possible on your way to Hellnar is Borgarnes ( Bonus ). In Hellnar you can shop in Ólafsvík, about 30 min drive. A lot of hiking is possible in the area. I recommend this place and stay. The owners are also very kind and helpful. Thank you Berglind en Gestur. Hope to see you again!

Wonderful cottage with excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, cosy and well-equipped cottage with views of both sea and Snaefellsjökull glacier and within walking distance of Hellnar beach. Very nice and helpful owner. Excellent location to explore the beautiful Snæfellsnes peninsula : hiking (coast walk Hellnar - Arnastapi, Budahraun crater, Svödufoss), beaches (Djupalonssandur), viewpoints (Ondverdarnes lighthouses, Londranger birdcliffs, Snaefellsjökull, Kirkjufell), visit of Flatey island, swimming in outdoor heated pool (Stykkisholmur), seal watching at Ytri-Tunga and so much more to do!

perfect cottage, very nice area, friendly people

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is part of 5 or 6 cottages of a small road in a village called Hellnar. It is located at such a remote and wonderful place! You have a great view towards the Atlantic ocean and/or the Sneafellsjökull volcano, which looks pretty majestic when the weather allows you to look all the way up to its summit. The further surroundings like the coastal area of Hellnar, Londronagar, Sardsvik beach, the little town Olafsvik (don't miss out having a quality meal in Hraun restaurant!) just to name a few are absolutely lovely and relaxing. For the ambitious 4wd experienced, one can try driving the F-road 570 if it is passable in summer (check for current information). Not alone the area, but also the cottage itself is very well 'equipped'.

At a first glance I was wondering if there will be enough space for 4 persons, but everything worked out well because the room-design is quite suitable. You will always meet in the living-room area which supports togetherness very well. The description to arrive at the house has been accurate and reasonable. Everything was clean and perfectly arranged, so we have been able to enjoy our stay almost instantly.

Gestur the owner is really a very friendly guy which I now can tell according to my own experience: I accidentally took one of the keys with me after our stay. Thanks to his kindness we figured out a way to bring it back to him, which was convenient for both of us. No stress, no hurry, no complaints at all - even when he would have been in the position to do so!

So thank you again for having us. It won't be the last time. :)

Greetings from Hamburg, Germany
