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

If you 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 host 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 near the scenic Halldórsskora (Elephant Rock). So naturally, a magical place like this must have Hobbit houses.

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? A ferry named Herjolfur sails to the Westman Islands from the town of Landeyjahöfn.
