Hvítahús is a residency program for artists and an art gallery. It’s located just next to the Snæfellsnesþjóðgarður National Park. We provide you with a home away from home, without the distractions of everyday life. The house is surrounded by astonishing landscapes, special sea biosphere and bird life, giving the artists the perfect opportunity for inspiration. Hvítahús was originally an ice storage (íshús), and is now the only remaining building from the old Krossavik harbour. The recently renovated Hvitahús preserves its original characteristics and structure.
