We recommend staying in the Snæfellsbær or Grundarfjörður area. Rif is a very small town but it’s only 5 minutes away from Hellisandur and 10 minutes away from Ólafsvík. The festival will have fixed trips between these places and a driver who people can call to get a ride with, for a small fee.

Welcome hotels are giving all the guests of the festival 15% discount at their hotels in the area if you order directly from them by contacting them at

There are plenty of options for accomodation on and airbnb. We recommend you look around there.

The festival has booked the entire Freezer hostel for guests of the festival. If you have trouble finding accomodation, don’t hesitate to contact us at and we will assist you as we can.
