Du er i en nationalpark område-Dette er den smukkeste del af Island -Med sin glinsende hvide kegle synlig fra Reykjavik på en klar dag, Snæfellsjökull er den mest potente og varig symbol på Snæfellsnes. Hvis gletscheren ikke var der, ville imidlertid de mangfoldige vidundere Snæfellsnes skiller sig ud på samme måde. Snæfellsjökull, (1.446 m) en gammel kegle vulkan, en af fineste bjerge i Island. Et imponerende syn fra så langt væk som Reykjavík, hvorfra den kan ses i klart vejr, synes at stige fra havet. Mange forhistoriske udbrud fandt sted i gletscheren-dækkede krater på sit højeste, og dens skråninger er dækket med lava. Gletscheren er ret nemt at klatre, omkring 4-6 timer til den højeste top, Þúfur. I den østlige base er en Tourist Association hytte, nu i ruiner. Gletscheren dominerer området, den vestlige del er dækket med lava og er kendt som "under gletscheren". I Jules Vernes roman, en rejse til jordens indre.

We spent one week at this spotlessly clean cottage. It is all new with an open floor plan downstairs with many windows to let in the views and light and bedrooms upstairs. The kitchen was well equipped with everything needed as well as comfortable beds and good black out shades in case one is traveling during the summer months. The cottage is located very near to the national park and easy access to the glacier. Many trails and hiking are available as well as horseback riding. The landscape is dramatic but is only about 2 hours from Reykjavik. Every morning we awoke to see the glacier covered mountain and hear the birds singing in the grass; the crashing of the waves on the rugged shoreline and the full moon lulled us to sleep or the winds in the eves pass over you in this cozy location. There is a small cafe nearby with reasonable prices but it is best to bring food for cooking larger meals. At times, horses or sheep may wander by to say hello. A great getaway and interesting. In winter because of the lack of ambient light, norther lights can be seen here. The town has about 10 permanent residents in winter so it feels remote, but the cottage and location make it very convenient.
Georgeous quiet place with great great great view on both the ocean and Snaefellness (and northern lights)! The cottage is amazingly comfortable (especially the bed and the downstairs sofa) and very well equipped (oven, microwave, washing machine and dryer, tv with lots of DVD, board games, toys and books). I planned to stay four days but it was so great and cosy that I spent 17 days there! Gestur was very kind and flexible and always answers in short delay. The cottage was clean and in perfect condition. There is also a small cafe 5 min walk. I could not recommand it highly enough!
We were welcomed by this modern, spacious cottage which has lots of character. The whole cottage is very well equipped, no shortage of kitchen appliances, washer, dryer etc. It was spotlessly clean on our arrival, the self-cleaning system, i.e. preparing for the next guest works well.
The location is the real selling point. It is unbelievable to have a spectacular view of the glacier out one window and of the crashing waves of the sea out the other. We spent one week in the cottage and never felt the necessity to turn on the TV but chose to listen to Icelandic radio and focus on each other.
We were lucky to see the northern lights. Places to go on whale watching tours are well within driving distance. We were lucky to see families of orcas feeding on herring. There is plenty of spectacular countryside only a stone throw away. If your interested in photography there are endless opportunities.
The communication with the hosts Berglind and Gestur was perfect right from the start. Route descriptions and other instructions were very clear and sent to us on time.
This was our first trip to Iceland but we have already decided that it won't be our last.
Thank you Berglind and Gestur for letting us stay in your lovely cottage.
Beautiful cottage and location. The moment we turned on the road and saw those cottages in the distance, set between the mountains and the ocean, felt like a dream. We were 4 adults (2 couples) and stayed here for 4 nights. It was a great home base for visiting the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. We also saw the Northern Lights shine bright above and all over the sky on the first 2 nights. Spectacular! Time went by too fast and was sad to leave. Felt peaceful, relaxing and the scenery all around that area is awe-inspiring. Thank you Gestur! and thank you for your communications during our booking and stay.
We stayed in this wonderful comfortable cottage for one week! It was the perfect spot for exploring West Iceland! The village of Hellnar is gorgeous. There are 3 restaurants/cafes within walking distance from the cottage. The walk along the bird cliffs to Arnarstapi is magnificent!! The cottage was very bright and airy and had everything needed for cooking meals. The collection of DVDs was great for the few times we opted to just hang out. It is important to know that the TV area and master bedroom are upstairs while the kitchen, dining area and bathroom are downstairs. The steps are a bit steep but designed well with good sturdy handrails. My husband and I are both in our 60's and had no problems navigating the stairs.
Gestur was wonderful and very responsive to our every need. I highly recommend this wonderful cottage!!
Recently my family and I had the pleasure of spending a few weeks in Iceland. During this stay we had the privilege of staying at some amazing locations. The sights and sounds of the country were beautiful and our host just made that experience even better. We arrived to find our accommodations just as we expected and during our stay were provided with great recommendations for sights to see. I would highly recommend staying at Gestur’s cottage again. Thank you for be such a great host and we could not ask for a better place to stay in Hellnar.
