Accommodation in the heart of Snæfellsjökull National Park
by Summit Adventure Guides
If you need a place to stay in Snæfelljökull National Park, please consider Snæfellsjökull Apartments. We have 8 fully equipped apartments for short term rent. Each apartment can host up to 8 guests, a total capacity of 64 guests.
The apartments are located at a former US Coast Guard Loran C base at Gufuskálar.
Gufuskálar has a rich history since first settlers came to Iceland over 1000 years ago. Through the middle ages it was one of they key fishing centers in the area where rowing boats would go out daily to catch the cod that lives just off the coastline. Signs of village ruins may be found all over the area which nature is reclaiming slowly but surely.
The views from the apartments are great with ocean view on one side and the lava fields and Snæfellsjökull Glacier on the other side. Gufuskálar sits about 2.5 km from the nearest village so light pollution is at a minimum for viewing norther lights in the winter.
The closest supermarkets are Kassinn in Ólafsvík (10 min. drive) and a smaller one, Hraðbúð N1 in Hellissandur (3 min. drive). Keep in mind to check the opening hours of services in the area before coming. Snæfellsbær is a small community, home to about 1700 people. Services might have limited opening hours depending on season. Just contact us if you need any information when you're planning your visit, we're happy to help out and answer any questions you might have about the area or services available.
