The Grundarfjordur Bed And Breakfast is a spectacularly located guesthouse on the northern shore of Iceland's Snaefellsnes Peninsula, close to the iconic mountain of Kirkjufell. Travelers to this magnificent region looking for modern rooms with WiFi and private bathrooms should not hesitate to book their stay here.
Location & Nearby
Located in the village of Grundarfjordur, the Grundarfjordur Bed And Breakfast is close to services such as grocery stores, restaurants, and a gas station. The settlement has just 872 people and provides a fantastic insight into the local fishing culture, though several tour operators can take you out on local excursions. Kayaking in the area is particularly popular due to the incredible attraction right by Grundarfjordur, Kirkjufell.
Kirkjufell is a beautiful, standalone mountain and its pyramid-like slopes give it the illusion of a church. It sits right on the coast, allowing those who kayak around it to witness its incredible formation from some unique angels while exposing themselves to the wildlife of Breidafjordur Bay, which is home to seabirds and seals.
Even on foot, however, it is a magical site to explore, particularly considering its adjacent waterfall. Game of Thrones fans will recognize it from the last two seasons.
Kirkjufell is but one of the countless features of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, all of which you can drive to with ease from the Grundarfjordur Bed And Breakfast. On the northern shore, you can head to the fascinating Bjarnarhofn Shark Museum, where you can taste fermented shark, and the town of Stykkisholmur, which is steeped in folklore. These features are 14 miles (23 kilometers) and 24 miles (39 kilometers) away, respectively.
Meanwhile, the southern shore has sites such as the cliffside gorge of Raudfeldsgja, which is 30 miles (48 kilometers) southwest, the seal-watching haven of Ytri Tunga Beach, which is 33 miles (53 kilometers) southeast, and the Gerduberg basalt columns, which are 35 miles (57 kilometers) away. This side of the region also has cultural attractions, such as the windswept church of Budir.
However, the most iconic sites of Snaefellsnes are within the Snaefellsjokull National Park, which is on the peninsula's tip. This area is centered around the twin-peaked subglacial volcano of the same name and boasts the Djupalonssandur beach, Vatnshellir cave, and the Londrangar basalt plug. The closest entrance to the park is around 23 miles (37 kilometers) away.
