Spring Brings New Life
Hótel Framnes is the base for Snæfellsnes and the whales
Hotel Framnes sits right on the bay in Grundarfjörður, enjoying a clear view of Breiðafjörður Bay, with its myriad islands. Jutting out into the bay to the left rises the most photographed mountain in Iceland, Mt. Kirkjufell.
The hotel was originally built as a fisherman’s hostel but a complete renovation has made it popular for its comfort, service and warm friendliness with visitors internationally.

Activities on land and sea
Grundarfjörður is particularly easy to reach from Reykjavik, being a two-hour drive through amazing countryside. It is the central of the three fishing villages on the north coast of the Snæfellsnes peninsula.
Hikers love the coastline and the mountains, lakes and waterfalls behind the village, while the bay itself is popular for fishing and whale watching as well as being a photographer’s hot spot. Glacier trips and horse riding are both inspiring experiences here and all the main attractions on the peninsula can be easily reached from Grundarfjörður.

Colours and comfort
As Spring arrives, colours begin to change as life returns to the land and the snows retreat. The days get brighter and longer and travellers begin arriving in greater numbers to enjoy all the activities.
At the end of the day, the hotel‘s comfortable hot tub, which has a screen protecting bathers from any sea breezes without interrupting the view, a massage chair and sauna provide soothing for sore muscles.
It is little wonder that this 29-room hotel, with a 60-seat dining room and free wireless Internet has won the approbation of visitors as TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence attests.

See the ocean‘s big five with Láki Tours
Sailing in the mystical bay aboard a traditional oak fishing boat holds a magic all of its own. Last year, Láki Tours had great success in seeing whales during the winter season. This year, Láki Tours offers a unique whale watching tour from Ólafsvík on their new boat, the Brimrún.
Nowhere else in Iceland is there a better chance to see the ocean’s big five whales - Blue Whale, Fin Whale, Humpback Whale, Minke Whale and Killer Whale - than along the Snæfellsnes Peninsula coastline.
The landscape is magnificent around the Glacier and even more so viewed from the sea. The Snæfellsjökull Glacier rises majestically into view from wherever you are at sea, competing with the wonderful sight of breaching whales. Bookings can be made for the daily trips at Hotel Framnes.
