Cottage sleeping up to 4 in first rate accommodations
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 Eyja- og Miklaholtshreppur
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.

Sodulsholt was perfect for our family of 4. The cottages are warm, comfortable and very well thought out. I was particularly thankful that there was an extra sleeping mat up in the loft. My children are young and were a little nervous about being alone upstairs. I was able to lay right up there with them. We loved riding the horses even though it was a very windy day. The trainers were kind enough to take us for a short ride outside.
We stayed here on the end of our trip and between the windy conditions and our children being tired of traveling, we skipped most of our Snæfellsnes touring plans and just stayed around the farm, visiting the horses and playing with the dogs. It was the perfect place to relax and just enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Great communication and lovely property!! It was very cozy and nicely located to explore.
Horse Farm Cottage
the stay at the cottage was on the last two days in Iceland. It gave me and my wife time to just relax after all the driving. The cottage was quiet and very clean. The night sky and day view was 360 degrees perfect. We don't have children but the upstairs look like a fort for kids to enjoy. Next time we are in Iceland we will stay again.
Oh to Return to Cabin Bifrost with the Northern Lights Playing in the Sky Above
Tucked away in West Island with dark skies above and mountains all around this is a wonderful base for exploring the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Driving from Reykjavik we were told to get groceries at Borganes. The sign with the pink pig was the grocery store right along route 54 as we came into town. The remaining drive to the cabins took about an hour getting us there right before sunset. Climbing the hill behind the cabin we took some gorgeous sunset photos of the mountain tops.
The cabin was beautifully done with a large porch, nice floor plan, main bedroom downstairs and another in the loft above. The kitchen was well supplied with everything needed to cook or fry and even sported a small dishwasher. The refrigerator is small but the storage room had another small refrigerator so no problems there. It took us a bit to figure out the internet. The box was on the wall with the password under the TV, once we discovered that the WiFi worked well. Beautiful views within the cabin and I loved the wood walls and ceiling, it also kept the cabin warmer.
The location is great for touring the peninsula. We had good and bad weather but made the drive around the island to see Kirkjufell and Kirkjufellsfoss, Berserkjahraun (lava field) numerous waterfalls and Helinar arch.
Walked to the barn one morning to see the horses which I wanted to photograph. Just wish I had asked to see one actually being ridden. Saw several while driving around Iceland and they are marvelous animals. I did get some shots of them in the padlocks, very friendly.
We were also there during the Northern lights season and what a show. I had my camera shooting continuously for star trails and watching this natural phenomenon is something that you just don't see in Texas.
Saying goodbye to the owner and his son the day we left Oli suggested we make a couple more sightseeing stops. Very friendly people and exceptional lodging. It was the best of all the other lodgings we stayed in during our trip. Enjoy!
Beautiful stay on the Snaefullsnes Peninsula!
Oli was very accommodating when we were trying to book two of the cottages at the same time, timely and polite responses. The cottages themselves are nicely appointed and very comfortable. Our cottage had everything we needed from utensils and cookware to towels and a gas grill! Visiting the Icelandic horses in the barn (with supervision ;) ) was a highlight as they're friendly and darling! Special tours are offered to those using the cottages but unfortunately time and our pending itinerary didn't allow for horseback riding. There is so much to see and do on the peninsula, I would highly recommend these cottages as your stopping grounds!
Clean, new and well equipped cabin
My family of 4 enjoyed our stay here. There are 4 identical cottages on a very large horse farm and this is a good spot to stay and use as a base for exploring the Snaefellsness region. Our daughter was able to get a quick lesson with one of the trainers and take a trail ride on one of the ponies and go at a pace and level suited to her abilities (rather than in a mule train with a bunch of novices). Everyone we met and dealt with was friendly and helpful. The people running this operation are doing everything right.
