Hellnar is a beautifully situated hamlet, a close neighbour of Arnarstapi. It is a farming and fishing community in picturesque surroundings, on a raised lava edge, overlooking a small harbour. Along the beach below where the pounding sea has created a huge vaulted cavern Baðstofuhellir, - on a sunny day filled with simmering blue light. The Snæfellsjökull National park's visitors centre is situated at Hellnar.
