This is a popular, waterfront hotel initially built as a shelter for fishermen in 1954, with a central location in the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, a short distance from the local main attractions, making the Hotel an ideal base for exploring the local area. The hotel has a warm, relaxed atmosphere, with its spectacular seaside position, offering majestic views out over the fjord.

Your morning of whale watching will begin at approximately 11am, right from the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Board the boat for a 2 to 3 hour trip depending on whale sightings, enjoy a snack and a hot chocolate on board .The cool clear waters offer a fantastic viewing point for these magnificent creatures, the Minke Whale and Dolphins being the most popular here, often playing and swimming around the boats. You may also be lucky enough to see a Humpback Whale or a Killer Whale. You will then return back to the hotel for lunch, before heading to the village for a guided tour. Enjoy dinner back at the hotel, then relax in one of the hot tubs, or perhaps, take a hot chocolate outside and see if you can spot the Northern Lights.
After breakfast, you will board your coach and head off to the charming town of Stykkisholmur, the biggest on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. With its stunning scenery, bright buildings and laid back attitude it has a definite appeal.
