Hellisandur

Hellisandur is a typical coastal village. It is thought to have been the first densely populated settlement in Iceland. A variety of local artefacts date from the earliest habitation. At the eastern edge of the village is Keflavík undir Jökli (Keflavík under the glacier), a fishermans launch and landing spot for centuries. Farther to the east are Bali and the sea cliffs Keflavíkurbjarg. Snæfellsjökull dominates the view from Hellisandur. Daylight reaches here year-round and very beautiful sunsets are seen when the sun sinks beneath the horizon of Breiðarfjörður.

The Maritime Museum at Hellisssandur has displays that include Iceland´s oldest rowboat, built in 1826. The area between Hellissandur and Rif is a bird-lovers' paradise and one of the largest arctic tern nesting areas in Iceland. Snaefellsjokull National Park is also on the doorstep of Hellissandur.
