Ah! Springtime in Iceland
Put your feet up and stay awhile at Munaðarnes
After the long, dark Icelandic winter, one feels a sense of rejuvenation returning once again to the island in Spring. Days are becoming noticeably longer, while upwardly mobile mercury in the thermometer tells us that Spring has indeed arrived, with the promise of summer following close on its heels. April and May are also the time of year when migratory birds flock to the country; the dead quiet of winter gives way to the happy chatter of the winter wrens who make their home in the birch trees surrounding Munaðarnes. The pink-footed goose is seen from mid-April to mid-May in the farmlands around Munaðarnes before heading for their breeding grounds in the highlands.
And so it is at Munaðarnes, owners Þór and Stefania are busy making preparations for visitors who also flock to Iceland in spring and summer. The energetic couple put their all into making Munaðarnes a genuinely fun and friendly place to stay, with lots of activities for guests, such as bingo, karaoke, a Sunday afternoon cake buffet, guided nature walks, bouncy castles for the kids and even an Indian curry night. On cool spring evenings, you can cosy up on the deck in colourful wraps, while the kids play in the playground or have a round of mini-golf just outside the door, all of which contribute to Munaðarnes’ popularity as the go-to place for families with children of all ages.
Nestled among the birch trees of Munaðarnes are 56 self-contained cottages that sleep 4–6 comfortably. If you are not in the mood for cooking, let Stefania rustle up a few of her signature dishes such as savoury crêpes filled with grilled chicken, smoked lamb or trout, with rice and fresh vegetables. Perfectly situated for exploration of Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Munaðarnes is located on the banks of the Norðurá River, a great place to get away from it all and where tranquility truly abounds, just 95 km from Reykjavik.
