Holmur coast trip

The travel service in Hólmur offers organized, short trips from Hólmur to the coast. The main goal of those trips is to show people the beauty of the ocean, let them find the atmosphere the closeness of the sea can offer, and give them examples about how the ocean has shaped the lives of the people in the area. From the coast is a beautiful view of the mountains surrounding the Hornafjordur area. In the summertime the trip starts at Hólmur around 20:00 in the evening. When the coast has been reached, the time spent there is about an hour. There people can walk around on the beach, gaze at the Atlantic ocean and enjoy the fresh sea air. Return to Hólmur is around 22:00-22:30. Booking in advance is recommended. Over the low season (during wintertime) trips are organized by appointments. Minimum of passengers per tour is 2 persons.

Customers testimonials

“Peaceful and friendly place to stay in Iceland”

This part of Iceland is less tourist-filled than some areas. Holmur is a little farm conveniently located with amazing views of several glaciers. The owners are very friendly, do not over-price their rooms and have a lovely breakfast. Internet access is possible. There are some animals kids will enjoy. Nearest shops are in Hofn - about 40min drive east (where there is also a small airport with service from Rekjavik). We used it as a base to work on the nearby glaciers. GlacierJeeps run various icecap trips nearby.

The owners have openned a new restaurant with traditional food.

Highly recommended!
