Location

Stóri Hólmur is a beautiful, rusty, old farm on Reykjanes Peninsula. The abandoned buildings are a haunting reminder of a bygone era. The farmhouse stands alone, close to a rocky shoreline. Its creaking doors and broken windows tell the story of a once-thriving farm that has long since been forgotten. Far away in the background you see a glimpse of Reykjavík, the capital, and a mountain range in distance. The buildings are literally the center of a golf course and were used as a clubhouse before a new and more modern house was built within few hundred meters away. Despite its location and dilapidated state, it still gives a great feeling of time past and aloneness with its rustic beauty.

Shooting requires both the permission from the property owner and the local government permit

Basecamp and facilities

There is easy access straight to the location and to the shoreline only to be used for offloading and small tech base. There is a small working shed with a small parking lot just 200 meters up the road and a big parking lot 1-kilometer away from the main road, where the modern golfclub, with basic facilities is also located, but needs to be rented. Phone coverage is excellent at this location.

Risk factors

If you are shooting here during opening hours of the golf course, you might want to be aware of flying golf balls. Also, the shoreline is very rocky and can be slippery in wet weather. The buildings are neglected and could be hazardous and not stable.

Visitors

This area is an active golf course so you will need to have an employee with you if you choose to shoot there during opening hours.
