The Volcano Hotel is a beautiful, family-run hotel on the South Coast of Iceland. Ring Road travellers or those spending several days making the most of this incredible region will find it a cosy, affordable, and perfectly situated choice of accommodation.
Location & Nearby
Located on Route 1, halfway along the South Coast, the Volcano Hotel could not be better positioned. It is just a ten-minute drive from the village of Vik, where you can find a wealth of amenities, and within hiking distance of two of the region’s most magnificent attractions.
The first of these is the enormous rock arch of Dyrholaey. This spectacular natural phenomenon is not just famed for its size and formation, but for being a nesting ground for puffins throughout summer. The second is Reynisfjara, a haunting beach with black sands, powerful waves, and striking coastal geology.
By car, you can get to the path to the DC plane wreck in ten minutes and the great waterfall of Skogafoss in twenty. Travelling in the opposite direction, you can reach the glacier tongues and fairytale landscapes of the Skaftafell Nature Reserve in less than two hours, and just a little further down the road is the ‘crown jewel of Iceland’s nature', the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon.
Because of its proximity to the sites and useful location on Route 1, the Volcano Hotel can serve as either a perfect pit-stop for those travelling around the country or a base for those focusing on the sites of the south.
Facilities & Amenities
Volcano Hotel is small and cosy, with just seven rooms; even so, it is modern, as everyone has satellite TV, free Wifi, and a private bathroom. Furthermore, they are beautifully styled with inspiration from the nearby volcanoes, glaciers, and black sand beaches.
Both standard double and family rooms are available, the latter having a sofa bed; those looking for a little more space and comfort can book superior rooms in both varieties.
Breakfast is provided for all guests, as is tea and coffee in the comfortable communal lounge. There is also a bar on-site, and several nearby restaurants.
