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.

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.
