Description

Experience the magic of Iceland at Hotel Kria, your cozy retreat in the heart of the land of ice and fire. Built in 2018, this modern hotel offers a warm and comfortable haven nestled in the picturesque village of Vik. Immerse yourself in the breathtaking natural beauty of Iceland while enjoying the convenience and hospitality of Hotel Kria.

Location and Nearby

Hotel Kria's strategic location is the perfect starting point for your Icelandic adventure. Situated in Vik, it is right beside road No. 1, also known as the Ring Road, which encircles the entire island. This prime location provides easy access to all the significant points of interest along the South Coast of Iceland.

Vik itself is a magical destination. This charming village boasts a dramatic black sand beach, where the waves of the wild and stormy sea meet the volcanic shores. You'll also have the chance to witness thousands of puffins, those iconic seabirds, especially during the May to late August breeding season.

Beyond Vik, Hotel Kria serves as an excellent base for exploring the remarkable attractions of the South Coast. Just a short drive away, you can visit the famous Reynisfjara beach, known for its black sand and striking basalt rock formations. But beware, the powerful and dangerous sneaker waves add an element of adventure to the experience.

You'll find the Dyrholaey lighthouse not far away, perched atop an eroded headland with breathtaking panoramic views. This area has been a natural reserve since 1978, preserving its unique beauty.

The DC plane wreck on Solheimasandur is a fascinating destination, 17.9 miles (28.9 kilometers) from Hotel Kria. This historic site tells the story of a United States Navy plane that ran out of fuel and crashed on the black beach in 1973.

For those seeking an icy adventure, the Solheimajokull glacier awaits, offering glacier walks and epic ice-climbing experiences. Remember always to book glacier hikes with a tour agency for safety.

Skogafoss, a majestic 197-foot (60-meter) waterfall, is another nearby gem. The Skoga river, sourced from the glacier, plunges from the top of an eroded cliff, creating a mesmerizing spectacle.

And for those curious about Iceland's recent volcanic history, don't miss Eyjafjallajokull. This glacier-capped volcano became famous for its 2010 eruption, which disrupted European air travel. It's a reminder of the country's geological power.

A bit further is Seljalandsfoss waterfall, where you can walk behind the water and experience the sheer force of nature. Nearby, you'll also find Gljufrabui, a hidden waterfall partially concealed by canyon walls, offering a unique perspective.
