Reykjavic, the Golden Circel Area and Snaefellnes are reachable by car. Even if you have to drive a few kilometers more, the nice and...

We stayed three nights in Cottage 1 early in October and had a fantastic stay. The property is immaculately kept and has all the creature comforts of home for your stay. We stayed as a family of three (2 adults and a 14 month old) and enjoyed it as a base to explore Snæfellsjökull which was a great full day...

The Cottage was perfect; comfortable and relaxing with beautiful views and beach with seals. Easy to get to the main attractions. We loved it here. Warm welcome from the owner and her two wonderful beagles.

How to get there
Airport: Keflavik: 100.0 km
The address is Kalastadi, 301 Akranes.

You drive from the airport towards Reykjavík. When you have reached Reykjavík, you should see signs on you right directing you to Mosfellsbær. You make a turn there and drive through Mosfellsbær. You could shop groceries there. There are two shops, Krónan with a yellow logo (you see it from the road) and Bónus with a pink pig in it´s logo. From Mosfellsbær you drive towards Borgarnes on road no. 1. You go through the tunnel under Hvalfjörður and take the first exit out of the roundabout. You will shortly drive past a factory site on your right and then up a small hill. The second road on you right on that hill is road no. 47, Hvalfjarðarvegur. You turn there and now it´s only few km to the cottages. You will see a sign with the name of the farm, Kala...
