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.

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 road.is 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

Cozy cottage and lovely town

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect and more than enough room for myself, my husband and our two children. Do not let the outside of the house fool you. It is very roomy. The views and nature surrounding this cottage are spectacular. Thank you for letting us stay. We would definitely stay again and recommend to all of our friends.

Perfect Cottage for family of 4, Nature everywhere

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 nights in this wonderful cottage. My girls 10 and 7 did not want to sleep in the living room down stairs, a room that can convert into a sleep bed, but decided to sleep in the TV/game room on the couch up stairs on second floor. They were very comfortable on couch and floor mattresses provided and we appreciated the gate that can close at the top of the steep stair case. Just note the only bathroom is downstairs (but has wonderful heated floor!) Steps from the national park, steps from the ocean with insane lava rock formations, quick drive to the lava tube, the glacier, golden and black sand beaches, the horse farms. Perfect place to see the Northern Lights - seen twice April 22 and April 23. We saw whales swimming by with the insane ocean view. Closest store to buy some groceries (limited) was a gas station stop in the next town, maybe 25 min away. We ate once at the Hotel Hellnar steps away from the house which also provided a nice dinner and nice views. Had an excellent meal at Langaholt restaurant, best meal in Iceland. We did have to plan ahead and clean the house according to rental agreement (no cleaning service) before we checked out early in the morning as things take a bit of time to dry in the dryer. It was nice to have a washer and dryer in the house. You need to bring your own tp and paper towels/napkins! Overall a great, awesome place to stay. Prettiest location for sure with access to everything beautiful on the peninsula!
