Our apartment is on the first floor in our house and it is very comfortable. One bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. The apartment is located in Rif, a small town in Snæfellsnes and it has view of the Snæfellsjökull glacier. Rif is famous for Artic tern
From the private wooden deck we have seen killer whales and dolphins. In the winter northern lights can be seen from the balcony. The seals are regular visitors and different species of seabirds are at home here. The house used to be the village grocery store but has been converted into two luxury apartments, perfect for couples or small families. Hellissandur is only 200 km from Reykjavík and the roads are excellent. You can choose between three beautiful scenic routes to get here.
“هذا المكان أكثر جمالا من الصور. أمواج المحيط تتصادم مع الصخور ، والأختام المتدلية في الشمس ، أجمل موقع لرؤية الأضواء الشمالية التي كنا محظوظين بما يكفي لرؤية كل ليلتين! المضيف رائع وكان مفيداً للغاية عندما قمنا بحبس أنفسنا بطريق الخطأ خارج الشقة. لا أستطيع أن أقول ما يكفي من الأشياء الجيدة حول هذا المكان الجميل!”
The house was built between 1906 and 1935 by the trading company Tang&Riis and used as a workshop, staff house etc. It was renovated in 2010 with kitchen and bathroom upgraded to modern standards.
