Visit Iceland’s Snaefellsjokull National Park and the nearby Eco-friendly Hotel Hellnar

June 30th, 2016

Hotel Hellnar is 10 minutes away from Snaefellsjokull National Park where there is an abundant wildlife such as arctic fox and white-tailed eagles and the park has many incredible views of rock and ice formations as ancient lava flows are prominent in this landscape and there are a wealth of caves in the area, which are said to have inspired Jules Verne to choose the top crater at Snaefellsjokull as the entry point in his famous novel, Journey to the Center of the Earth. The hotel can help arrange horse-riding tours through lava-fields or along sandy beaches and Island Tours from Stykkisholmur where boat sails close to islands where birds such as puffins, cormorants, kitti-wakes and seaeagles nest. Also, there are many hiking trails from the hotel to a wide range of nearby natural attractions.

Hotel Hellnar is the first travel and tourism business in Iceland to be certified by GREEN GLOBE, and has been certified since 2002. This hotel is safely far away from the Eyjafjallajökull volcano which erupted in the spring of 2010 and caused so much havoc with air travel to Europe. They offer accommodations with spectacular ocean view, at the heart of Snaefellsjokull Glacier. They are open from May 10th to September 15th. The hotel was originally planned to be a spiritual retreat it is currently a modern but simple, single story wood building that comfortably coexists visually with the surrounding natural splendor. See more information on the hotel’s website.
