Description

Hotel Skaftafell is a fantastic choice of accommodation right by the Skaftafell Nature Reserve, one of the most beautiful parts of Iceland. South Coast travelers spending more than one day in the region and Ring Road travelers looking for a perfectly positioned pitstop will find no better place to stay.

Location and Nearby

Hotel Skaftafell is just seven minutes from Skaftafell, an incredible reserve within Vatnajokull National Park. With its three surrounding glaciers, sprawling lava fields, abundant woodland, and iconic waterfall of Svartifoss. It is a dreamland for hikers and photographers looking to spend a day or more following magical trails to incredible sites.

Skaftafell, however, is not the only nearby attraction. The Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, a lake cluttered with gleaming icebergs, can be driven to in around an hour. From here, you can continue a Ring Road adventure into the Eastfjords. Traveling in the opposite direction, you can reach the Fjadrargjufur canyon in the same amount of time, then head to Reynisfjara beach, Myrdalsjokull glacier, and the waterfalls of Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss.

There are not many villages or towns near Hotel Skaftafell, though you can find basic amenities and services at Kirkjubaejarklaustur, also an hour away.

Facilities and Amenities

All the rooms of Hotel Skaftafell are comfortable and modern, with en suite bathrooms, satellite TVs, desks, and free Wifi. Twin, triple, and quad varieties are available. They all promise to have spectacular views, some of which are over the largest ice cap in Europe, Vatnajokull. A breakfast buffet is served each morning, and each evening, you can dine on an a la carte menu at the restaurant or enjoy a drink at the bar.

Staff at the hotel will be happy to help you book local excursions, such as glacier hiking in Skaftafell and boat tours on Jokulsarlon.

Parking is free for all guests.
