About this home

Newly renovated farm house located in Hvalfjordur only 40 min from Reykjavik on a gated private 1400 acre estate along the coast enjoying spectacular views & nature. There is a natural hot spring, rainbow trout fishing lake 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.


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 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.

    Gorgeous property for a family stay

    Our family - 2 couples with 4 kids - enjoyed an incredible week at this lovely farmhouse. Everything was as described, and the scenery cannot be beat. Beautifully designed interior with comfortable beds and linens. Kitchen and the outdoor grill was just enough for cooking family meals and we all enjoyed exploring the property and the outdoor hot tubs. We made several excursions that the property managers recommended, which were a bit of driving but well worth it. The host was very easy to work with and communicated well with us. Overall an amazing experience.
