Premium 4-Person Cottage on Horse Farm on Snaefellsnes Peninsula (West Iceland)

Premium 4-Person Cottage on a Horse Farm on Snaefellsnes Peninsula (built in 2016) with Amazing Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) during Fall and Winter.

Sodulsholt is a working horse training and conditioning farm on the Snaefellsnes peninsula that includes over 70 horses, horse stables, and a first class indoor riding facility on more than 1300 hectares (3,200 acres). We are located 2 hours from Keflavik International Airport and approximately 40 minutes northwest of the town of Borgarnes.

Our accommodations include new cottage (built in 2016) that sleeps 4 people comfortably. Cottage includes Wifi (for email, internet browsing), a double mattress, 2 twin beds, full kitchen (including microwave, toaster, coffee machine, refrigerator), sitting area, bathroom with shower, and outside seating area. Fresh linens are provided. Do you prefer to grill? A "Weber" grill is available for your use.

Sodulsholt serves as a central location to explore the beautiful surroundings of the Snaefellsnes peninsula, including the Eldborg Volcanic Crater, a nearby geothermal pool, Gullborgarhraun Lava field (formed by the Gullborg volcano 7000 to 9000 years ago and referenced in the Icelandic Sagas), the village of Stykkisholmur, Arnarstapi/Hellnar and the Snaefellsjokull glacier.

Foal season typically runs from May through September when we welcome additional foals into the Sodulsholt family. June features our sleppitur event when the horses are let out for the summer.

Experienced horsemen could reserve a horse for riding around the area including to the nearby beaches (extra fee). Our property also includes a river where you can test your skills at catching fresh Icelandic salmon (extra fee, summer only, bring your own sanitized gear).

Our Snaefellsnes location is ideal for observing the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) as they can be seen from October through March.

Sodulsholt is located approximately 13 km (8 miles) from the Eldborg Volcanic Crater, 50 km (31 miles) from the town of Borgarnes, 45 km (28 miles) from the historic town of Stykkisholmur, 69 km (43 miles) from Arnarstappi/Hellnar and the Snaefellsjokull glacier.

Check-in time is 16:00 and Check-out time is 10:00.

Our exact location (latitude/longitude) is: N 64° 50' 07.2", W 22° 26' 14.3" (64.835322, -22.437306)

About Oli

Horse breeder and casual farmer that has lived and traveled the world but calls Snaefellsnes home.

Oli purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Oli chose Iceland

This large property (over 1300 hectares or 3,200 acres) has it all, including 4 NEW Cottages! The view of the mountains, ocean, and free grazing horses are spectacular. We are conveniently located with easy access to the many sights that Snaefellsnes peninsula has to offer and more. The cottages were built in September 2015. I invite you to come for a visit and to take in the beauty of the area. The property includes a private river where guests may fish for salmon (extra fee).

What makes this cottage unique

The view, the area, new cottages, and easy access to various sights in the area make this a unique, quiet, and yet central location.

Beautiful little homes

  • 5 of 5

Our home was perfect for our family of 4, including 2 grown children. There was ample room for them in the loft. We cooked our own meals, which helped save on food; the kitchen has everything you need, including sharp knives (hard to find in rentals). The farm itself is very cute and there are 2 horses that greeted us each time we came and left. Directions to find the property were very easy to follow and suggestions on exploring the peninsula were useful, as well. It rained every day we were there so we didn't ride horses, but we were so busy exploring Snaefellness.

Communication with property owner was top notch. Every email was answered within hours.

Location, housing, environment... all top notch. So much so that when I come back I will never need to look for a place to stay again! This is it! Location for the western exploring is just right. Even within an hour drive of cottage you could spend a week or more exploring... within 15 mins are ample options. Some of the coolest stuff we saw was right next door to this property.

House was everything we needed. Couldn’t be happier or more satisfied with end result of our time there. Just wow. Iceland is beautiful and this property is perfect!

Very nice cottage in a beautiful surrounding.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is on a beautifull setting yet on a great location. We could cover the west very comfortably and had good rest at the cottage. The cottage was clean and very well equipped. Oil was very helpful and available to answer all our questions. His father and sister were on the farm and provided further help as needed. We did not have any luck with horse riding and Northern lights due to unfavorable weather condition but enjoyed our stay.
