Adventure Hotel Geirland
Adventure Hotel Geirland is a hotel immersed in the rural landscapes south Iceland, close to the historic village of Kirkjubaejarklaustur. Its 40 rooms boast beautiful mountain views, and its fantastic location makes attractions such as Skaftafell and the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon easily accessible.
Location & Nearby
Adventure Hotel Geirland is located just a few minutes’ drive from the village of Kirkjubaejarklaustur in south Iceland, three km off the Ring Road. This makes it perfectly positioned for those traversing the South Coast, a beautiful sightseeing route that warrants several days of exploration.
In the direction of Reykjavik, the hotel is only an hour and five minutes from the mystical black sand beach of Reynisfjara; travelling east, you can reach the incredible wilderness of the Skaftafell Nature Reserve in 55 minutes. Meanwhile, the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, the region’s most iconic site and one often referred to as the ‘crown jewel of Iceland’s nature’, is just over an hour and a half’s drive away.
Because of its convenient location, it is recommended to spend a day touring sites such as Seljalandsfoss waterfall, Reynisfjara and the Dyrholaey rock arch, before staying overnight here. You can then spend a second day exploring Skaftafell and Jokulsarlon. You can then either return to the hotel or continue on a Ring Road adventure.
Immediately surrounding Adventure Hotel Geirland are rural landscapes that roll up to some beautiful mountains, which you are welcome to hike to. This isolation also makes it a great place to look out for the aurora borealis in the winter months. Kirkjubaejarklaustur itself is a historic village and boasts several more trails, which lead to serene waterfalls and dramatic rock formations.
