  • Friendly site with direct access to the Löngufjörur coast
  • Spectacular Snæfellsnes Peninsula spot for fishing and seal watching
  • Bar, café and sociable communal area on site

Fancy waking up in the morning to the roar of the Atlantic Ocean and the chirping of birds, then sipping your morning coffee while watching the waves crash on a remote beach? Then you’ll mostly likely be very happy with your lot at Traðir Guesthouse, in a secluded sea-view spot on the rugged Snæfellsnes Peninsula.

This is proper get-away-from-it-all territory: over in the west of the country, the Staðarstaður site is a couple of hours’ drive from Reykjavik and surrounded by spectacular scenery, with the Snæfellssjökull National Park around a half-hour drive away. There’s direct access to the Löngufjörur coast from the site, so you can stroll right out onto a sandy beach or saddle up for horse riding along the shoreline. Pack a rod and reserve a permit on site for fishing in the nearby Staðará river.

A bar and café keep guests fed and watered through the long evenings of the Icelandic summer, and barbecues are welcome too. Don’t sigh too much if you’re tasked with washing-up duty: Traðir’s may well be the most scenic sinks you’ve ever been stationed by. Handy facilities on site include showers and ladies’, gents’ and accessible toilets; there’s also a communal area where groups, couples and solo travellers alike can gather to socialise, swap tips and plan outings.

Electric hook-ups are also mighty handy for such tasks as charging gadgets and lighting up your evenings, but you might want to pull the plug on your pitch if you’re lucky enough to be treated to a glimpse of the Northern Lights…

Local attractions

If you fancy a different kind of beach from the dark hues at Traðir, the golden sands of Ytri Tunga are a five-minute drive away along the coast. It also happens to be one of the best places in all of Iceland to spot seals (of the grey and harbour varieties, to be precise).

Head inland for five minutes instead to hit a mineral spring with carbonated water – the high iron content of the spring gives its water a distinctive taste, and it’s well worth stopping to take a sip on a hike around here.

Snæfellssjökull, a 700,000-year-old mountain which can sometimes be seen from as far as way as Reykjavik, is a 45-minute drive away to the west. The national park around it is home to lots of stunning scenery, including both an active volcano and a glacier. Fiction fans may well recognise Snæfellssjökull as the setting for Jules Verne’s ‘Journey to the Center of the Earth’.

One of the main draws of the site is, of course, its sheer remoteness. There are, however, a couple of good restaurants within a ten-mile radius if you fancy sampling some local grub.
