The West Iceland/Fjords region

Close to Stykkishòlmur, you'll find the great Snæfellsnes National Park. It is was voted one of **Iceland Top Five** to visit. There you can enjoy Snæfellsjökull, and it's magical and remarkable nature.

On the pictures you can view more activities on the west coast of Iceland.

Day trips to the Golden Circle:

Only 45 min driving on to the Golden Circle to view the great Gullfoss and the hot spring Geysir. Also on the Golden Circle you will find the historical place Thingvellir (Þingvellir):

Þingvellir is a site of historical, cultural, and geological importance and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Iceland. It is the site of a rift valley that marks the crest of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. It is also home to Þingvallavatn, the largest natural lake in Iceland.

Parliament or Alþingi was established at Þingvellir in 930 and remained there until 1798. Þingvellir National Park was founded in 1930 to protect the remains of the parliament site and was later expanded to protect natural phenomena in the surrounding area. Þingvellir National Park was the first national park in Iceland and was decreed 'a protected national shrine for all Icelanders, the perpetual property of the Icelandic nation under the preservation of parliament, never to be sold or mortgaged.'

Borgarnes

The house is located sidelong the spectacular salmon river Langá, one of the greatest salmon rivers in Europe.

Fantastic walking paths from the house, where you can enjoy the peaceful nature.

The house is a one hour drive north from the Reykjavík Capital and 10 minutes from Borgarnes. In Borgarnes you can go to one of the nicest swimming pools in Iceland, play golf at Hamarsvöllur, visit the great Settlement center where you can learn about the Icelandic culture and saga, go to the pub and shop at the cheap Bonus grocery store.

In the north direction, about 50 minutes driving, you will find the old fishermen´s town Stykkishólmur, where you can go sailing, Whale Watching and enjoy bird watching paradise.

You can say about the location of the house that it is midway between the two great National Parks, Snæfellsnes and Thingvellir National Park and only one our from our Capital, Reykjavik.

"Awesome, awesome, awesome!"

Great and easy booking process, great communications from the owners. This is in a fabulous area for exploring and with a great bakery in nearby Borganes. The house was an amazing eco house with great views and just one of those places you feel really relaxed in. The house felt bigger than the images suggested on the website and our little one had a great time running round. I cannot in anyway fault our stay here and would definitely stay again without hesitation.

Thank you so much for the nice review and taking good care of our villa. Welcome back anytime.. :) Sincerely, Heidi and Rob

"Very nice and comfortable house to visit West Iceland and Reykjavik"

Modern and comfortable house, ideal for six persons. Very nice and luxurious kitchen and bathroom. Spacious terrace with BBQ. Quiet and natural surroundings.

Good spot to visit West Iceland (Snaefellsnes, Eldborg, Stykkisholmur) and Reykjavik.

Highly recommended.

Thanks for the review and welcome back in Helluskógur. Heidi and Rob

"Great location and fabulous villa"

We stayed in this nice house for one week in the summer of 2013.

The house is marvelous to stay in and equipped with everything you need. The house was very clean and cozy when we came and we loved it from the first minute. It is very spacey and open and it is so nice to have those big windows, it feels like your are out in the nature. The patio is big and enough room for everyone, the kids to play and us grownups to relax in the sun.

The location of the house is perfect and we could find something new to do and see everyday. But some days we just stayed in the house, relaxed and cooked nice meals in the fantastic kitchen. It is ideal for a family to cook together. The kids loved it and it was really good that there were some toys and books in the house both for us and the kids.

We got very good information from Heidrun and Robert before we came and they were very helpful about everything. We plan to stay in the cottage again soon if Heidrun and Robert continue to rent it out
Sincerely,
Helena

"Perfect house and location"

We spent 5 wonderful days in the house In the summer of 2013. The house is fantastic. It is very architectural and harmonieses well in the forrest and with the surroundings.

The property was clean and included brand new equipment and WIFI and everything works (the Kitchenaid coffee maschine makes the best coffee in the world). We made a trip to Reykjavik and were only about 1 hour on the way in a beautiful sceenary via Borgarnes and Akranes.

Every day we went to the Swimming pool in Borgarnes and I miss it..

In Borgarnes we found all the necessaries including Bonus grocary store. The national park of Snaefellsnes is a “must visit”.

We where having difficulties leaving the comfort of the house. If the weather permitts, we recommend outdoor dining and barbecueing. It´s very convenient for three couples and the shape of the house and outlet gives each one privacy.

The kitchen and the living room is perfect for gatherings and dining with big worktop to cook and everyone can participate.

The furnitures are cosy and just to hang out and just do nothing. During the evenings we went out walking in the area with great paths in all directions and along the river which is unforgettable.

We can all recommend this house 100% and and it did not disappoint us. Exploring the West of Iceland, the location is perfect. At least 5 days is a minimum, just away from the city. If Robert and Heidrun continue to rent it out, we are definitely coming back and spending at least one week.

Thank you Peter and Sunny! Thanks for the a very nice review and we are glad that you liked the house. You´re welcome back anytime. Regards Heiðrún

"Absolutely Amayzing!!"

A fantastic house. The location was so great, no highway and no sound except from the nature itself. This house is magical and has everything you need (and more). The kitchen is very spacious and good facility to cook and we saved a lot of money on resturant bills.

The owner was very helpful and told us all about where to go and what to see. Also very good information about how evrything works and funktions in the house.

Thanks Heidrun og Robert for a absalutely wonderful stay. The only negative thing about it all was that we did not realize how fantastic the house and the place was until we arrived so, we didn´t stay long enough.

One thing we want to mention is the price. We have staid on the south coast near the Golden Circle in many sommerhouses. Compairing the price and the standard, this house exceeded our expactations and also more than pleanty of attractions to visit on the west coast. Reykholt, Stykkisholmur, Borgarnes, Akranes and only one hour to Reykjavik. We visited the fantastic swimming pool in Borgarnes every day and it was even open early in the morning until ten o´clock in the evening. It was so, so nice and relaxing.

Everything was perfect, clean and well organised.

We are allready planning to come back next fall.

.. and thanks Robert, for the late phone call to remind us, to look up in the sky for the Northern lights, it was magical.

Fantastic, Fantastic, Fantastic... !!!!
