Hellnar

Get Directions

Highlights from the Place

Hellnar is located at the end of the Snaefellsnes peninsula and was for centuries one of the largest fishing villages beneath the Snaefellsjokull ice cap. Today it is a popular tourist destination. Spectacular and beautiful cliffs rise directly from the ocean. In the Valasnös Cliff, one of Iceland’s most peculiar caves is located, called Baðstofa. It is known for its unusual changes of lighting, shades, and colourful interior.
One of the best known hiking trails in Iceland is between Hellnar and Arnarstapi. It is by an old horse trail by the seaside where unique rock formation can be seen, as well as thousands of birds in the cliffs.
