Location & Nearby

Hotel Karolina is located in Stykkisholmur, the biggest town on the Snaefellsnes peninsula, with roughly 1,200 residents. To its north is the vast Breidafjordur bay, where guests can take boat tours to explore the nearby islands and observe seabirds and whales in their natural habitat.

Stykkisholmur has great choices of cafes, restaurants, and shops that suit every traveler's preference. There are also must-visit cultural attractions near the hotel, including the Library of Water, the Stykkisholmur church, a golf course, and a thermal swimming pool.

For those seeking outdoor activities, the Snaefellsnes peninsula is a paradise waiting to be explored. Guests can hike along scenic trails, admire dramatic coastal cliffs, and see the towering Snæfellsjokull volcano, which inspired Jules Verne's novel "Journey to the Center of the Earth." 

Just 25 miles (40 kilometers) from Hotel Karolina, guests can visit the iconic Kirkjufell mountain. Kirkjufell is a favorite spot for photographers and outdoor enthusiasts with its distinctive pyramid shape and cascading waterfalls.

For those looking for more photo opportunities, a visit to the Budir black church is recommended. This historic church, south of Stykkishomur, was built in 1703 and repaired in 1848. It's most known for its black exterior surrounded by lava fields, mountains, and the coastline.
