Newly renovated farm house with all modern amenities and a private jacuzzi located 40 min from Reykjavik on a gated private 1200 acre estate. Spectacular ocean views & nature. There is a natural hot spring, trout fishing and multiple historical landmarks on site. Vikings settled here 1000 years ago and scenes in Game of Thrones were shot on the property. Glymur, highest waterfall in Iceland is 15 minutes away as well as numerous scenic hikes. Geysir and the Golden Circle are ca an hour away.

Lo spazio
The luxury farmhouse was completely renovated in 2017 and is part of the Hvammsvik Estate. It was originally built in 1930 as a traditional 3 story farmhouse with exceptional views over the property and Hvalfjörður "Whalefjord" bay. The house is on three floors with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the top floor. An open kitchen, dining room and living room on the first floor. On the ground/Entrance floor you have a TV room, fully equipped bathroom with washer and dryer and a bedroom with 4 bunk beds. Outside you have a courtyard with a private jacuzzi, barbecue and great outdoor wining and dining. The property is full of original Icelandic art by many of Iceland's most promising artists however ultimately its all about the surrounding mountains, the ocean and becoming one with nature.
Hvammsvik Estate consists of several old farm buildings and a large barn that have been newly renovated to meet all modern needs while still keeping the integrity and rustic charm of its origin. One of the unique elements of Hvammsvik Estate is that it is entirely self sufficient both for its hot and cold water both of which are sourced within the Estate. There is a Geothermal hot spring at the oceans edge which is available to our guests and the same well provides all the hot water for the property. As Hvammsvik is a private gated estate you can walk around for hours in total privacy and emerge yourself with nature enjoying the peacefulness of the ocean and the surrounding mountains.
There are over 30 different types of birds in and around Hvammsvik. Wild sheep roam around and if you are lucky you can spot the Arctic Fox roaming around. The Arctic Fox is a small and completely harmless Fox that changes colors with the seasons. There are also a lot of mussels around the islands on the property that are accessible in low tide and are delicious to cook. The season for picking fresh Mussels is September through December.
Hvammsvik is a historical landmark that was first discovered by the Vikings
1000 years ago as is recorded in Landnáma, the Icelandic book of settlers
dating back to the 11th century. No wonder they choose Hvammsvik given its
incredible landscape, natural harbor, geothermal hot spring and
wildlife. The Vikings are not the only ones who fell for the natural
beauty of Hvammvik. Several scenes in Game of Thrones where also shot on
the property highlighting the incredible landscape all around the Fjord.
During World War II Hvammsvik was taken over by the allied forces as
their Naval Headquarters in Iceland. At its peak there where almost
40.000 soldiers in Whale Fjord and over 200 ships. During the War
Hvammsvik was code named "Falcon Crest" and "Falcon Beach" in order not to
reveal its true location hence the name of one of our Lodges. When
Churchill came to Iceland on August 16th 1941 he is said to have met with
F.D Roosevelt Junior in the Lodge on the top of the hill which at the
time was the Naval Communication center for all the ships in Whale
Fjord.
Along with Icelandic tradition Hvammsvik has its share of Trolls and
Elf stories. Many whom are said to be residing in famous rocks and the
hillsides of the property. One of the best know Elf "castle" in Iceland
is "Steðji" or Staupasteinn. There is also said to be an Elf Church and
Elf Queen residing in the hill side right next to the Lodges so dont be
surprised if you witness outer worldly creatures of all sizes at dawn.

Accesso per gli ospiti
The newly renovated farm house is entirely private for our guests. Our guests are also welcome to explore around the entire Estate and its surroundings. You can even walk onto Hvammshofdi and island connected to the land in low tide. Just be careful not to get caught by the high tide as you might become Robinson Crusoe for 6 hours until the low tide allows you access back to shore again :) There is also a small lake on the property full of rainbow trout that you are welcome to fish and enjoy.

Altre cose da tenere a mente
There are two houses/lodges on the property, the Panorama Lodge and the Farm house that we rent out along with our own private lodge "Falcon Crest" and the caretakers lodge. The Estate is gated and very private and safe. We encourage everybody to simply walk around and explore and enjoy the nature as one of Icelands signatures is the ever changing landscape given the extreme elements of our nature. We hope you will Enjoy!

Kjósarhreppur, Islanda

One of the most amazing things about Hvammur Farm is that it is so close to Reykjavik while still an entire world of its own. Located in Hvalfjördur "Whale fjord" which is a scarcely populated area rich in history and incredible nature. You have some of Icelands most famous and best hiking spots all around you. Glymur, the second largest waterfall is 15 minutes away. Mount Esja, the most hiked mountain in Iceland is 20 minutes away, although we would recommend skipping Mount Esja and rather hike Fossá, 5 min away and/or Botnsdalur and Brynjudalur all within 15 minutes from the Estate. More interesting place in and around Whale Fjord
Other interesting things to see inside Hvalfjordur
Staupasteinn, incredible viewing platform to have a look over the
fjord and a a trophy shaped rock.
Brynjudalsfoss, beautiful waterfall
Fossárrétt – Old Sheep Herding Station and Waterfall
Hvítanes – the Old Abandoned Military Base during World War II
Soak in the local swimming pool at Hlaðir
Visit the War and Peace Museum.
Visit Hallgrím’s Church built in tribute to the late Hallgrímur
Pétursson who wrote the Passion Hymns.
Where to grab a bite in Hvalfjordur?
• Kaffi Kjós – all the classics, burgers, sandwiches, and
vegetable dishes.
• Hotel Glymur Restaurant – great for local seafood and other
Icelandic meals.
• The War and Peace Museum Café Shop
• Hotel Laxarárbakki – traditional Icelandic dishes with a
modern twist.
Interesting places near Hvalfjörður:
• Akranes - 20 min drive away, a small fishing village where you
can go up to the lighthouse there and have one of the best views
over Reykjavik or take a dip in the new manmade hot geothermal
pool at Langisandur beach. The pool is called Guðlaug and entry
is free of charge.
• Hraunfossar waterfalls are 1h away from the Lodge a nice day
trip. On the way there is the new geothermal spa/bath Krauma
where you could take a dip in the hot pools and get some spa
treatments as well.
• Golden circle tour. On the way to Þingvellir you can make an
extra stop at Þórufoss on the road Nr.48. Its a very beautiful
and big waterfall, famous from the Game of Thrones. In order to
go from Hvammur Farm to the Golden circle we recommend using
Google maps. The shortest way is to drive past Medalfellsvatn
towards Thingvellir and then past Thingvellir towards the Geysir
area and Laugarvatn. It should be an approximately 1 hour drive
to Geysir.
• Hraunfossar and Barnafoss Waterfalls
• Deildartunguhver Hot Spring
• Krauma Geothermal Baths
• Reykholt
• Snorralaug in Reykholt was the home of Snorri Sturluson, born in
the 12 century and author of many of the best know Icelandic
Sagas.
The local store and coffee house Kaffi Kjós is open every day in June, July and August. In the winter time it is only open during weekends. Next open supermarket is in Mosfellsbær (40 km) or in Akranes (40 km). There is also small store and petrol station which is open every day in Grundarhverfi (30 km).
