Vos Hotel is a family-run hotel with 18 bedrooms, on the cusp of a black sand beach on the South Coast of Iceland. Its location off the beaten track and homely, welcoming atmosphere makes it an excellent choice for those looking to immerse themselves in the country’s nature.
Location & Nearby
Vos Hotel is located 15 minute’s drive from Hella, a village in south Iceland where you can find all facilities a traveller may need. In spite of this, it is well off Route 1, at the base of an otherwise little travelled road by the beautiful hamlet of Þykkvabær. It is thus surrounded by spectacular nature; to its north is splendid countryside, whereas to the south is a dramatic, haunting black sand beach, both of which can be hiked around.
Those staying at Vos Hotel with a rental car will find it well-positioned to explore the sites of the South Coast, a magnificent sightseeing route. The first major landmark of this region is the beautiful waterfall of Seljalandsfoss, which is just 45 minutes away, and from there you can continue to sites such as Reynisfjara beach and the Dyrholaey rock arch. For something a little more unconventional, the Westman Islands can be reached in less than two hours, including the ferry journey.
Vos Hotel is also a good base for visiting the Golden Circle trail, which tours the Geysir Geothermal Area, Gullfoss Waterfall and Thingvellir National Park. Geysir is just over an hour’s drive away, and the other attractions can be reached from there in ten and forty minutes respectively.
