You are in a National Park area- This is the most beautiful part of Iceland -With its glistening white cone visible from Reykjavík on a clear day, Snæfellsjökull is the most potent and enduring symbol of Snæfellsnes. If the glacier weren't there, however, the manifold wonders of Snæfellsnes would stand out just the same. Snæfellsjökull, (1,446 m) an ancient cone volcano, one of finest mountains in Iceland. An impressive sight from as far away as Reykjavík, from where it can be seen in clear weather, seeming to rise from the sea. Many prehistoric eruptions took place in the glacier-covered crater at its peak, and its slopes are covered with lava. The glacier is fairly easy to climb, about 4-6 hours to the highest peak, Þúfur. At the eastern base is a Tourist Association hut, now in ruins. The glacier dominates the area, the western part of which is covered with lava and known as “under the glacier”. In Jules Verne’s novel, A Journey to the Centre of the Earth.

Amazing Home Surrounded by Endless Beauty
I spend a week at Jules Verne Cottage #1 at the end of October and it was a truly spectacular experience. I am writing a book, and was so inspired in Berglind and Gestur's amazing home and the surrounding area.
I was concerned traveling alone that I might feel lonely out there by myself, but the home was cozy and comforting - immaculately clean - and warm! I did not want to leave.
There is an amazing view from every single window. On the second night of my stay, I saw the Northern Lights dance over the glacier for about 10 minutes!
The hike to Arnastapi was incredible and the house is an easy drive to other sights on the peninsula.
I hope to be back again and again next year. This is a magical place :)
thank you for your kind review :) We so hope to see you again!
Lot´s of love from Iceland.

Wonderful cozy cottage with amazing views
We loved our stay here. It was perfectly positioned for amazing and ever changing views of the earth, sky and sea. It was very comfortable and clean. It was a great location for exploring the whole Snaefellsnes peninsula. We enjoyed walking down to the little cafe near the beach for hot chocolate and waffles, hiking around the rocks and walking the path to Arnarstapi. Gestur and Berglind were very responsive and helpful with all the questions I had leading up to our stay. My boys enjoyed watching movies from their huge stash of videos in the evenings. We would definitely stay here again! The dryer does take forever to dry, but we brought our own sheets/pillow cases, bathroom and kitchen towels and blankets so that we could cut down on the washing.
Dear Anna & family,
thank you for your kind review. Hope to see you again!

Lovely, cozy cottage with all the amenities one would need.
Thank you Katherine.
Comfortable quaint cottage
As advertised, has amazing views of the mountains, volcanoes, and ocean. Loved the remote location, perfect for non touristy time away. Recommend buying groceries either on your way on in the next town about 30-45 minute drive. Is a good 2.5 hour drive to Reykjavík and three hours to the airport.
Apartment is appointed with everything you need. Limited WiFi and no TV access worked perfect for us.
Thank you Linda :)
Beautiful cottage with mountain and ocean views!
This cottage is amazing. The views are so beautiful and Hellnar is a fantastic place to visit. A few things to keep in mind. This is a self clean cottage so allow enough time on check out day to clean and make it spotless for next guests. Also, the stairs are very steep so be careful climbing up and down the stairs. Gestur was great to work with and offered to help with car rental and other vacation planning. Place is very close to Snafellsnes National Park and I recommend taking a few days to explore the National Park. I highly recommend this cottage for a home base for adventure and relaxation!
Thank you Callie,
it was a pleasure.
Hope to see you again :)
