Helgafell is a historic farm, 7km from the popular town Stykkishólmur.
On the farm Helgafell is a small mountain and the views from the top of it are beautiful in every direction and at the top you also find an old chapel where you can make three wishes.
We built two studio cabins side by side with a good privacy from each other, they both have great view over the Helgafell lake, holy mountain and the sunset is unique. There is also a beautiful birdlife all around.
They were both ready 1. august 2017 and we did put our heart in to make them as nice, cosy and beautiful for our guests.
Each cabin has a double bed (160cm), sofa bed (140cm), bathroom and it has fully equipped kitchen.
Helgafell is only 7 km away from the populated town Stykkishólmur where it is possible to visit museums, there is nice swimming pool, good restaurants, you can go in tours on sea and there is a supermarket.
Bjarnahöfn is only 20km away where is also a museum and you can try they're famous shark.
Many good hikes are here in Helgafell and all around.
The cottage is absolutely fantastic. Looks like new, fully furnished, cozy, comfortable, with large windows. Just perfect! The host was very friendly and helpful. Definitely the best stay we had in Iceland! Highly recommended.

Helgafell was our first stop while travelling in Iceland. Our host made sure that we had everything that we needed for our stay. We loved the farm setting, the beautiful sunsets and watching the Border Collie do his job. It was a great experience.
