Guestbook comments from the owner
We thought the website pictures of Hellnar looked lovely and when we actually arrived there we were even more impressed by the beauty of the location. We were lucky to see it at its best with the sun shining on the deep blue sea. We took many photos looking from the house to the church. The house was clean and well maintained, it was equipped with almost everything we needed for our stay. We dined at the tables (inside & out), enjoying the view as we ate: we spent very little time in the house as the weather was superb and the sun didn't go until very late. The bedrooms were comfortable and clean, with the peace and tranquility of the area we slept very well. Our first evening was spent exploring Hellnar and the harbour, we loved it. The following day we walked to Arnarstapi and took the Snow-cat up the glacier - we took great photos looking back down to the house. Definitely recommend this as a day out - watching the Arctic Terns on the cliffs was wonderful and we advise guests to explore the cliffs, the sea caves are magnificent. We drove to Stykkisholmur on our second day and took the birdwatching boat tour of the Breidafjordur, we saw all kinds of birds and would recommend this as a good trip. We drove back via north road of Snaefellsnes which was full of interesting places. Our final day was spent walking, we left our car at Malarril (10 - 15 mins from house) and went to view Londranagar. We then doubled back and walked the coast path to Dritvik and back, spending some time on the amazing beach at Djupalonssandur. This was another excellent day out - we didn't expect the weather to be too hot in Iceland ! We had to leave at 7am the next day as we were booked on the car ferry to the West Fjords. We honestly wish we had booked to stay longer at this house - we didn't want to leave ! There were just a couple things to mention - we brought our own bed linen, we knew we would not have time to put linen in the washing machine as we had an early ferry to catch so could not use the linen provided. We thought the house had a barbecue but we couldn't see one - luckily we had already bought a disposable one. We would love to stay here again if we were lucky enough to come back to Iceland and we would definitely recommend it to our friends and family.





Thanks,

Shelagh and Trevor

Enjoy the idyllic surroundings of the Snæfellsjökull National Park in a brand new luxury cottage, located only two hour drive away from Reykjavik. The spectacular nature at Snæfellsnes peninsula has often been referred to as the center of the earth and became world famous after Jules Verne described it in his book “A Journey to the Center of the Earth”.

The south facing cottage offers a viewing platform of Snæfell Glacier known for its beauty and mystical power in the background and the Atlantic Ocean in the foreground. The accommodation offers 100 square meters on two floors and can comfortably house up to 8 people. There are 3 separate bedrooms on the upper floor along with a sleeping sofa, located in the informal TV/DVD corner. The cottage also offers fully equipped kitchen (with dish washer) and dining facilities.

The setting offers a variety of things to do such as: beautiful hiking trails, whale watching, sailing around various islands, historical placed, bird watching, skiing and sightseeing on the glacier.
