Bjarg Apartments & Tours are family owned and operated.
Our main goal is that our guests feel like they are at home while staying with us.

We take great pride in Bjarg, our home town of Grundarfjörður and it’s surroundings, and we love to be your local guides in the area.


Welcome to the beautiful West

Grundarfjordur is a village of 900 people, set in a beautiful location by the sea, sheltered by mountains, where Kirkjufell mountain is the best known. At restaurant Bjargarsteinn you will have an unforgettable meal in a stunning setting and a whale watching trip with Laki Tours is a must. We recommend driving around Snaefellsnes peninsula and exploring the Snaefellsjokull glacier national park.

You can go to the Vatnshellir cave and to the summit of the glacier, connecting with both heaven and earth. If you want to hike up there, we recommend GoWest tours. Our favorite café in the area is the small Fjoruhusid, down by the sea at Hellnar. In Rif there is Frystiklefinn, a super cool theatre run by a young local actor. During summer they have great performances in English based on local history.

It´s really worth spending a day in Stykkisholmur, which is the oldest town of Snaefellsnes. There you can find a few museums, and artists´ workshops. Flatey island in Breidafjordur bay is one of our favorite places on the planet. It´s like going 100 years back in time. Check out trips to Flatey with Seatours who also offer some great boat trips.

Spacious and comfortable apartment on a stormy day

Beautiful little house in the Snæfellsnes Peninsula

“The ground floor apartment was very cosy, well-equipped and tastefully decorated, we felt at home there.
The view from the flat is amazing at it is well located to visit the beautiful Snæfellsnes Peninsula.
We briefly met the host and she was super friendly, even showed us the seals swimming in front of the house!”
