About Hellnar ehf.

We are family that just love this place and its spectacular and unique nature.

Hellnar ehf. purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Hellnar ehf. chose Northwest Iceland

This cottage is located on the border of the National Park in Saefellsnes just under the famous Glacier Snaefellsjökull that is believed to be one of the seven energy fields of the earth that attracts thousands of people every year. The view from the cottage is straight up to the Glacier to the North and to the Sea from the South. It’s the best location to explore the Peninsula and be filled up by the energy from the Glacier.

cozy, clean, beautiful, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage was perfect for 2; great location to get away from the city life, recharge and get inspired. It was so tidy, clean, uncluttered and had all the essential items to make a meal and relax in candle light. I recommend bringing music - it complimented the atmosphere.

The property was amazing - there are about 8 or 9 different size cottages that are all black and looks cohesive. It feels private and you can see the water in the distance from the front and (in winter) there's a beautiful snow covered mountain just behind the cabin. Saw the northern lights the first night. The weather changes fast and I was really happy I brought good shoes for snow.

I had wondered if it'd feel too small but it was just right.

The dining, kitchen and living area was one room with a big L-shaped sofa that was perfect for relaxing, reading and listening to music. There was a separate bedroom without closets but had hangers which was perfect and a great alternative for space saving (another 24 inches in length with a bench would have been a nice bonus to accommodate suitcases).

Jakob was next door but we really didnt see him much as we were exploring the area during the day. Really good experience, would love to come back and stay longer!

Cozy home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Having heard I should spend a day or so in Reykjavik but find someplace remote enough to explore all Iceland has to offer for the rest of my week long stay, I stumbled upon this lovely cottage. It was perfect! The location is impecable with incredible views in every direction. So many sights to see, so much to do is all so close. The amenities were exactly as described, and everything I needed to feel at home. Being out and about most of the days I stayed, this cottage was home away from home at the end of some long days. The kitchen, the cozy, comfortable sitting/tv area, the bed... all warm and inviting. In addition the owners are welcoming and have it all laid out well for any traveler. I highly recommend this cottage and cannot wait to plan my return trip!

Super Haus, Wahnsinns-Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten das Glück, wohl einige der allerersten Gäste in diesem traumhaft gelegenen Ferienhaus zu sein. Das Häuschen ist super sauber, bestens ausgestattet und geschmackvoll im skandinavischen Landhausstil eingerichtet. Vom Esstisch aus kann man das Meer sehen und bei gutem Wetter hat man hinter dem Haus eine einmalige Sicht auf den magischen Snaefellsjökull. Vom Haus aus sind es nur wenige Meter Fußweg zum Nationalpark-Infozentrum, wo man sich mit Wanderkarten und jeder Menge Ausflugstipps für die wunderschöne Halbinsel versorgen kann. Die Kontaktaufnahme mit Jakob war freundlich und unkompliziert. Wir können dieses Ferienhaus uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen und würden jederzeit wiederkommen!
