The Bjarteyjarsandur farm is owned and operated by three different families, all specializing in their different fields; i.e. farming, tourism, education, food processing, and machine work. The farm is situated in a beautiful area by the Hvalfjörður fjord with a lovely seashore.
Hvalfjörður is an area with an abundance of hiking trails and possibilities. Whether you are looking for a short relaxing walk or a long and challenging hike, Hvalfjörður has something to offer. The nearby fjord has a rich history and offers a beautiful view of the local nature, geology, and cultural monuments.
At Bjarteyjarsandur you can rent fully equipped cottages with two to three bedrooms, a kitchen, a bathroom, a “hot pot”, and a barbecue on the patio. The cottages are located on the mountain above the farm, and they have a beautiful view. There are several good hiking trails in the neighborhood and guided tours are available for groups or individuals. The cottages are rented out on a weekly and/or daily basis.
Bjarteyjarsandur offers a homey, friendly, and quiet atmosphere at our campsite, which is located below the farm houses. It is an ideal place for hikers, bikers, and families alike. Campers have the option to cook their own meal, or buy local food from the farm. Using the shower, bathrooms, and WiFi is included in the price. Guests can take a short walk to the seashore in the evening sun or morning breeze, which we highly recommend. The beach has a very relaxing atmosphere for walks, and if you ask the locals, they may let you use their ‘Hot Pot,’ which is one of Iceland’s best kept secrets.
Bjarteyjarsandur farm has an old farm house, built in 1930, in which you can stay in if you are looking for sleeping-bag accommodation.
At Bjarteyjarsandur, we try to work in a way which promotes an ecological and sustainable way of life. We are respectful of nature and try to minimize the impacts we have on the surrounding environment.
