Langaholt offers a magnificent view of the mysterious Snæfellsjökull Glacier. On a yellow sandy beach just a stone‘s throw away, birds of various kinds enjoy life while the odd seal peeks its head up from the waves only a few metres out. The landscape of Snæfellsnes Peninsula is amazingly varied. Volcanic activity of days long gone and the pounding of waves have created the remarkable surroundings of this bright and cosy bed and breakfast and its popular seafood restaurant.

Seafood specialists

Fresh seafood is the key substance in the chef´s specialities. The licensed restaurant has a good reputation and is recognized for fish dishes and other delicious seafood meals.

Beach, golf, swimming, horse riding

The golden sandy beach next to the guest house is an ideal playground for both young and old and on a warm, sunny summer‘s day the sea can be quite tempting! A 9-hole golf course is located next to the shore. A horse rental and geothermal swimming pool with mineral-rich, naturally carbonated water are located at Lýsuhóll (3 km). The closest village is Ólafsvík, a scenic 33 km drive around the peninsula.

Snæfellsnes Peninsula – a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts

Fire, ice and the brutal forces of the ocean have created an adventure playground for visitors. More than a thousand years ago lava ran out to sea while waves carved supernatural figures out in rock. The peninsula offers countless opportunities for nature explorations along the coast or up into the mountains. Regular tours onto the glacier by snowmobile or snowcat are available daily throughout the summer.

Snæfellsjökull National Park

Langaholt is located 45 km from the Snæfellsjökull National Park Visitor Centre. There are many remarkable sights within the park that are well worth exploring;  places which bear witness of the forces of nature as well as the often difficult living conditions of previous times. Guided walking/hiking tours are available in the summer but everyone is welcome to explore on his or her own along well marked paths.

Roundtrip featuring spectacular natural attractions

A tour of the entire peninsula from Langaholt makes for an ideal day trip. Example; head west and make the first stop in the tiny village of Arnarstapi. Continue onwards to the tip of the peninsula and drive the north side eastward along Breiðafjörður fjord. Complete the circle by heading south directly across the peninsula along the so-called 'Lakes route' (Vatnaleið) back to Langaholt.
