Glamping & Camping - Hobbit Houses On The Westman Islands In IcelandGlamping & Camping  
Iceland

If you really want to go off the beaten path, Vestmannaeyjar (The Westman Islands) is an archipelago of 15 islands off the South Coast of Iceland. The islands are host to the largest population of nesting puffins in the world and are equally rich in natural beauty as you would expect from Iceland. This wilderness is an active volcanic region. The youngest island, Surtsey, was formed in 1963, and the Eldfell volcano's devastating 1973 eruption destroyed 400 houses.

The Glamping & Camping site is located near the scenic Halldórsskora (Elephant Rock). So naturally, a magical place like this must have Hobbit houses. These barrel-shaped houses have two rooms; a bedroom with two beds and a living room decorated in an intimate style to make you feel at home. If you prefer something more traditional, there are cottages too with a pretty, single space interior.

Apart from the beautiful surrounding nature, there is a swimming pool a few minutes walk away and a wonderfully windy 18-hole seaside golf course. So how to get to this wild and remote place? There is a ferry named Herjolfur that sails to the Westman Islands from the town of Landeyjahöfn.
