Location & Nearby
Fosshotel Reykholt is named after the settlement in which it is located, Reykholt. This tiny village is surrounded by serene scenery, has amenities such as shops and gas stations, but is best known for its history. It was here, after all, that Snorri Sturluson lived, a medieval writer, historian, and chieftain who produced some of the most reliable information on European history and Old Norse beliefs that we have.
He was also instrumental in Iceland’s civil war.
Reykholt is close to many of the amazing sites of the region. The waterfalls of Hraunfossar and Barnafoss can both be reached in 15 minutes traveling east, whereas you can reach the highest flowing hot spring in Europe, Deildartunghver, and its adjacent Krauma Spa, by traveling for 30 minutes west.

The capital of Iceland, Reykjavik, is also just 1.5 hours away.
