Know someone this property would be perfect for?
Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon is a brand new four-star hotel in Hnappavellir, a popular climbing area. The location is perfect for nature lovers, as it is right between Skaftafell and Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, two of Iceland’s most spectacular natural attractions; a hiker’s paradise. Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon offers 104 rooms with all necessary amenities. The restaurant at the hotel has a seating capacity of 150.

The South-East coast of Iceland remains one of the most popular routes for visitors to the country. Offering sights such as the waterfalls Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss, the famous black beaches at Reynisfjara, the incredible basalt rock pillars at Dyrhólaey, Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon, the vast vistas of Skaftafell National Park and of course Vatnajökull glacier.

A self-drive trip from Reykjavik to the Glacial Lagoon takes around five or six hours if you make stops on the way, which are of course, essential with the amount of sights on offer. To break the journey up we can offer stays in some other superb hotels on the way.

At the beginning of 2016, the Fosshótel chain opened this brand new four-star hotel called Fosshótel Glacial Lagoon. It's located just off the route one ring road some 29 kilometres from the Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon and 27 kilometres from the picturesque Svartifoss in Skaftafell National Park.

This contemporary building reflects the hues of the surrounding nature, in grey stone and clad in wood and is constructed in accordance with ecological policies. The interiors are beautifully chic with dark walls and cool sixties' style lighting lending it a kind of James Bond flair.

The hotel offers 104 rooms with beautiful views. They are all done in a modern, minimalistic style with extra hip touches such as the much coveted tartan woolen blankets from the Geysir stores. The large windows offering views of the sea almost look like a framed painting of the landscape. The bathrooms are spacious and of course, internet is free.
