Location & Nearby
Hotel Skulagardur is ideally located in one of the most beautiful areas in Northeast Iceland.
The Asbyrgi glacial canyon, also known as "Shelter of the Gods," is only 9 miles (14.5 kilometers) away from the hotel. This canyon is one of the many stunning natural features of the Vatnajokull National Park.
You can reach the oceanside town of Husavik in 18 miles (29 kilometers). Husavik is known for its role in the 2020 Netflix film "Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga."
The settlement is also the whale-watching capital of Iceland. Be sure to book a whale watching tour if you are eager to see creatures such as humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins, and puffins (if traveling in summer).
You will have no issues finding good restaurants while in Husavik, and there are multiple grocery stores if you'd like to make your meals.

The Arctic Coast Way also passes by the hotel for the most adventurous travelers. This ambitious route covers 560 miles (900 kilometers) of Iceland's northern coastline. This drive typically takes multiple days, so a night relaxing at Hotel Skulagardur will be well-appreciated on such a journey!
