Stykkishólmur is renowned for its stunning beauty with the perfect frame of mountains, high and low, highlighting the scenery.

Experience the sound of silence!: Words can not conjure up the magical mystery and wonders of Breiðafjörður Bay and the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. This area of the mid-west coast of Iceland has captured the imagination of visitors from all over the world and is fast becoming one of the country's 'hottest' places. For nature lovers this is definitely a 'must see' place when in Iceland.

Lush green valleys and rugged lava fields, craters and salmon rivers are the characterizing contrasts of this part of Iceland. When visiting, you will also have the opportunity to learn about two of Iceland's most famous Viking sons: Erik the Red, who discovered Greenland; and his son, Leif the Lucky, who discovered America.

Breiðafjörður Bay is renowned for its stunning beauty, with the perfect frame of mountains, high and low, highlighting the scenery. The most famous of these mountains is the majestic and mystical Snæfellsnes Glacier, towering at the coastal edge of the peninsula. Great bird life.

Sea tours: Seatours is located in the town of Stykkisholmur in West Iceland only just over 2 hours drive from Reykjavik. Our area included the magnificent Snaefellsjokull Glacier, the romantic Hotel Budir, and the Snaefellsjokull National Park. With Ferry Baldur you can also connect to the stunning west fjords with its towering mountains, fjords and white sandy beaches - an odd combination that no one should miss.

Thank you for making our first experience of Iceland so special. This "lovely little cottage" suited us all well, and made a wonderful home away from home.

Charming House with Ocean View

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five really enjoyed our stay here, sleeping comfortably, cooking and eating in the kitchen and dining room, enjoying the back deck and soaking in the outdoor hot tub with its view to the bay and its islands. The house made a good destination in its own right and as a base for the ferry trip to Flatey Island and a drive to Snaefellsjokull glacier (which was obscured by clouds and fog the day we visited, but I hear it's nice :)

Wir hatten uns so gefreut.....

  • 1 of 5
..auf die Tage im Traum-Ferienhaus! Die Lage ist tatsächlich traumhaft. Was uns sonst erwartete war sehr enttäuschend:
Die Küchenausstattung und vor allem die Sauberkeit lassen sehr zu wünschen übrig: Schmutziger Kühlschrank, verdreckter Herd,
eine einzige unbrauchbare Pfanne, Brösel und Schmutz in den Schubläden, ein unaufgeräumter Lebensmittelschrank mit einer großen Anzahl angebrochener, teil bereits verfallener Lebensmittel (z. B. Haferflocken in einer offenen Blumenvase), Grill im Außenbereich abstoßend verdreckt, uvm.

Ein vernachlässigter Außenbereich, z.B. eine der beiden Liegen unbrauchbar, da durchgebrochen!
Haare in den Schubladen im Badezimmer und unter den Betten wurde auch lange nicht geputzt.....
Kurz gesagt, ein Traumhaus sieht unserer Meinung nach anders aus.

Auf unsere umgehende Reklamation wurde keine Anstrengung unternommen, die Mängel zu beseitigen.
Wir wurden vom Vermieter vertröstet mit Aussicht auf Rückzahlung der Reinigungspauschale!
Wir wären damit einverstanden gewesen, aber
selbst eine Woche nach Abreise haben wir keine weitere Reaktion oder Erstattung erhalten.
Wir empfinden ein solches Verhalten als nicht seriös und unehrenhaft und empfehlen dieses Ferienhaus nicht!

Schönes Haus am Meer

  • 5 of 5
Wir waren mit zwei Kindern (4 und 9) eine knappe Woche in diesem Haus. Das Haus ist prima ausgestattet, gepflegt und gemütlich und wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Den Hot Pot auf der wunderschönen Holzterrasse haben wir sehr genossen. Man hat einen herrlichen Blick auf den Fjord. In dem kleinen Ort kann man sehr lecker essen und Ausflüge nach Flatey und zu den Westfjorden unternehmen. Wir können es uneingeschränkt empfehlen!

Take a look!!

Ski: Snaefellsjokull is one of the more popular and accessible volcanoes in Iceland, located beside the Atlantic at the western tip of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula northwest of the capital of Reykjavik. With a history of climbing dating back over two centuries, Snaefellsjokull makes an easy ascent and descent on skis throughout the winter and spring, although the summit pinnacle apparently requires some moderate ice climbing. However, the weather in this part of Iceland is typically even stormier than in the rest of the country, since it is exposed directly to the prevailing gales from the west and southwest.
