Where you’ll be

Hólmavík, Iceland

We are located near In the countryside close to Hólmavík village. A beautiful salmon river runs by the house, but a fishing license must be obtained.
We have great opportunities for hiking and a horse-rental is only 2-3 minutes walk from the house.

Hólmavík has two great restaurants and a hamburger stand, an excellent warm swimming pool and a hospital.
The unique Museum of Sorcery and Witchcraft is a must-visit
and Hólmavík is probably the best place in Iceland to go whale-watching.

We are pretty centrally located for doing day-tours in different directions. We have several interesting places to visit. Reykhólar, a 40 min drive to the south, with its algae-baths, an exhibition of open boats and Either-down, which is used in the best duvets in the world.
Djúpavík, an hour's drive to the north, is a fascinating old herring factory with an amazing history. A little further north is Kört, a small but interesting museum of local handicrafts and a wonderful museum shop.
Bjarnarfjörður is only a half hours drive with a natural geothermal pools, one of them is from around 1200. The Sorcerer's hut is a turf house newly built to give an idea of how people lived right until the 20th century.

In late August, the berries are ripe. Taking a walk in our hills and picking berries is a fun experience.
