Grundarfjörður Hostel

Grundarfjörður Hostel occupies a charming old house in a small and picturesque fishing village surrounded by amazing mountains. This small town is right in the middle of the magical Snæfellsnes Peninsula which makes it an ideal stopover from which to explore the surrounding area and points of interest. The legendary Snæfellsjökull glacier is only 20 minutes west, and the ferry to the West Fjords is 35 minutes to the east.

The hostel is composed of two buildings facing each other. It has 102 beds, 3 kitchens, 3 bathrooms and 2 TV-rooms. High-speed internet connection is available. Bed linen and towels are available for a small extra fee that is not included in the price. Also private apartments available.

Despite the relaxed atmosphere there is a multitude of activities and services available. The Hostel is a stone's throw from the swimming pool and a few minutes' walk will take you straight into the magnificent mountains surrounding the town. Other than strolling around and watching the boats land fish at the harbour, visitors can go golfing on one of the finest 9-hole golf courses in the country, horse-riding, bicycling, hiking, fishing, mountain-climbing, scree-running and swimming, or just hang out in the hostel garden with a cold drink and enjoy the all-night summer sun.

Kirkjufell mountain

Grundarfjörður's beautiful landmark is the most photographed mountain in Iceland. Its isolated position jutting out into the sea makes it a focal point for tourists and seamen alike. Surrounded by beaches, Kirkjufell has a lovely walking trail around it as well as a more challenging climb up to the top where bird and fish fossils can be found (guide is recommended).
