Kalastadir is only 55 km away from Reykjavik and accessible all year round. After the tunnel under Hvalfjord came, the traffic is at a minimum and therefore the surroundings are very peaceful. It’s hard to find more beautiful view, and you’ll be able to see why so many think that Hvalfjord is the most beautiful fjord in Iceland. From Kalastadir, the view goes from one end of the fjord to the other, and you’ll be able to go for walks to enjoy the view even more.

We, the current owners of Kalastadir, have lived here since 1980 and are the third generation within the family to live here. We used to have cows for milking, but today we have cattle, horses and dogs.

“Had a great week-long stay at the cottage. Brynja and her husband Thorvaldur were great hosts! Loved relaxing in the hot pot and spotting seals down on the beach. The cottage was well equipped, warm and has a beautiful view of the fjord, snow-capped peaks and surrounding fields. It provided us with the seclusion we were looking for, but was also well located for day trips to the Snaefellsness peninsula, Golden Circle and Reykjavik. Hope to return soon!”

“We stayed three nights in Cottage 1 early in October and had a fantastic stay.
The property is immaculately kept and has all the creature comforts of home for your stay. We stayed as a family of three (2 adults and a 14 month old) and enjoyed it as a base to explore Snæfellsjökull which was a great full day trip to explore.
The farm which the property is on is beautiful and we explored the shoreline to find some friendly seals bobbing up to see us.
The owner was very helpful and friendly to us throughout our stay.
We would recommend this property to stay in, it was a great start to our week long trip to Iceland.”

“We stood there for 5 days at the end of June 2016. Great place to relax. There are only three cottages each for 2 – 6 people. You can get there absolute privacy, comfort and relax. Cottage is fully equipped – kitchen, bathroom with WC, bedroom and living room for relax with futon sofa (can make a bed as well). On the terrase is hot tub with thermal water and gas grill. Great view over bay and mountains. You can have as well nice small walk on the shore after dinner. Calm place. Ideal for setting off one day trips (to Golden Circle, Reykjavik – only one hour from the Kalastadir, Borgarnes etc.). Good to shop in grocery in Akranes. There is also special liqueur shop. Ms. Brynja, the owner, is very nice and helpful, if you need any advise you can contact her without any problem. Absolutely recommend you for stay – at least for few days.”
