The story starts in 2012 when the cottages were first opened for tourists to book their stay. Hvammastangi Cottages are owned by a group of friends who live in town (Hvammstangi village). Each one brought their knowledge and skill set to the table and together they built the 9 cottages located in Kirkjuhvammur, a secluded spot near a small valley a creek and excellent view.
The location was carefully chosen with the independent and nature-loving traveler in mind. The cottages are located “above” Hvammstangi village which has every service you might need on your travels, but are still secluded, as if you were in the middle of nowhere.
Since we opened we have welcomed thousands of people from all over the world.

In 2017 we opened up a hostel in Hvammstangi village. It is in a redesigned container building in the north end of the village. It is the perfect stop-over for the more sociable traveler and groups of people travelling together.
