Hvammból Apartments is a small, family-run guesthouse just outside of Vík, in the heart of breathtaking Mýrdalur. We have eight studio apartments for rent where our guests can enjoy the rolling hills and endless sky in comfort. Only a short drive away you will find black sand beaches, glaciers, and waterfalls. We hope you’ll make the most of your time on the southern coast of Iceland by staying with us.
Meet Your Hosts
We are Salóme and Óli, and we live at the farm Hvammból along with our children and two dogs. Along with running the guesthouse Hvammból Apartments we also raise cows and sheep, grow strawberries, and care for the fields around the home. Both natives of Vík, we’re eager to introduce our hometown to the world. We think Hvammból and the surrounding area is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. We’re sure you’ll agree once you’ve seen it for yourself.
Sightseeing and surroundings
The southern coast of Iceland is the most popular region with foreign visitors because of its dramatic scenery and natural splendour. Hvammból Apartments location just 12 kilometres west of the village of Vík puts us at the centre of sightseeing while still giving you access to shopping and museums. Waterfalls, wildlife, and historic areas are just a short drive, walk, or horse ride away from our home.
Reynisfjara black beach
The Black Beach (Reynisfjara) is one of the most popular tourist spots in all of Iceland. It showcases a variety of unique and amazing rock formations, vibrant bird-life, spectacular views of the Dyrhólaey sea arches and- of course- black sand! The Black Beach is a 10-15 minute drive east of the guesthouse.
The Dyrhólaey promontory has dramatic sea arches, wild-life preserve and lighthouse. It’s a popular spot for birdwatchers and the view from the top is extraordinary! Dyrhólaey is only a 5-10 minute drive from the Hvammból Guesthouse and the lighthouse can be seen from the property.
This church is an iconic building in Vík, 12 kilometers to the east of Hvammból Guesthouse. The church hill offers an unparalleled view of the village, ocean and the surrounding area. It also serves as a local concert venue.

Had everything we needed!
Super clean and warm
I have been working on a photo book of Iceland for 3 years and always stay here when there is space. A wonderful family with enchanting children and very friendly cat and dog.
A working farm, it is the perfect location outside of Vik and without the town’s light pollution so perfect for Aurora Borealis watching. Just minutes from the famous black sands beach and the cliff top lighthouse too.
The cabins are super clean and warm and a great base to visit the many sights around here.
Would definitely stay here again!
