Welcome to our ground floor flat located in Grundarfjörður, a mere 2 hour drive from Reykjavik. We offer you 3 bedrooms, each with two single beds that can be moved together if needed. There is a well equipped kitchen, a comfortable living room with flat screen tv and a single bathroom with bath and shower. You will find that having your morning coffee by the kitchen window can be a joy as you watch the fishing boats heading out to sea. Our house is located in the village of Grundarfjörður, where the amazing mountain view surrounds the village and is highlighted by Kirkjufell mountain which stands out and is recognized as one of Icelands ( if not the worlds) most beautiful mountains. The Snæfellsnes peninsula is best known for the glacier Snæfellsjökull which is famous as the centerpiece of Jules Vernes 'Journey to the center of the earth'. The peninsula has endless sights of beauty to see and all of them are no more than a 30 to 40 minute drive from the house. Be it whale watching, bird watching, hiking or just looking at freak lava formations... your in the perfect spot! In the fall and winter you can watch amazing shows of the northern lights (Aurora Borealis) The village is right in the middle of Snæfellsnes on the northern side, where all of the more populated areas of the peninsula are. To the east is Stykkishólmur, which services the ferry to the West fjords of Iceland as well as being surrounded by the 'Breiðafjörður' islands. To the west is Snæfellsbær, made up of three villages that lie at the roots of the glacier, the largest village being Ólafsvík. In our own Grundarfjörður, you can find a very friendly atmosphere. We have a general store, gas stations, a hotel, restaurants and bars, a swimming pool plus a wide assortment of tourist activities such as a whale watching service, guided tours and hiking expeditions that can be inquired about at the information center. Grundarfjörður also prides itself of the extraordinary wildlife to be found in the area... such as Orca whales that sometimes can be seen swimming in and around the harbour area, as well as seals, dolphins and an assortment of birds. If one is lucky, as we very often are, you might find yourself staring at a seal, sitting on the Snoppa rock itself, which our rental is named after.

About Edvard and Unnur
Edvard and Unnur moved with their children to Grundarfjörður from Reykjavik in 1997. They immediately felt at home here and were amazed at how peaceful everything was. Their second year here they moved into this house and fell in love with it. They live in the two flight apartment above the Snoppa rental, and pride themselves in being close by in case their renters need anything. They are more than happy to assist if possible.
Edvard and Unnur purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Edvard and Unnur chose Grundarfjörður
In 2005 we got a chance to buy the ground floor apartment and obtain ownership of the whole house, which we jumped on. After having a few long term renters, we decided to try giving travellers a chance to rent short term and enjoy the natural beauty of our village and its surrounding area.

wonderful view out the windows!
Great living room with wonderful sofa and chairs. Great bed, and the entire house was very clean. There were condiments and basic supplies in the kitchen. We found Grundarfjör∂ur to be an excellent base from which to explore the peninsula. Also we recommend going on a Làki Whale Watch tour, they run a boat from Grundarfjör∂ur with an outstanding biologist on board.
Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure having you and your wife stay at Snoppa rental. We have to agree with you, that Grundarfjordur is the perfect spot for exploring the Snæfellsnes peninsula.

Space was cozy and clean. Lacked for nothing.
Space was cozy, but clean. Make sure you have what you need as this is a sleepy town.
An excellent choice
This was a truly comfortable apartment in a good location in a lovely town.
We found the washer and dryer convenient, hanging our wash outside on the line. We enjoyed the beautiful view out of our kitchen window. Everything was provided to make this a lovely stay.
Comfortable place - plenty of room. 3 bedrooms was great.
Great location - lovely spot!
We (3 senior couples) stayed here 2 nights in June, 2017. It was a perfect place from which to explore the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. The view is beautiful, the restaurant recommended was top notch - not a complaint from anyone in our group!
Great spot on Snaefellsnes!
We stayed for three nights with two young children. The apartment had everything we needed including a high chair and baby bed. The kitchen was fully equipped so we were able to easily cook for ourselves here. Everything was very comfortable and clean and with a lovely view of the water, especially out of the master bedroom. Our hosts Edvard and Unnur were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again and recommend this place to others.
Thanks for your kind review.
