Where good things come in small packages
Any journey around Iceland’s south coast inevitably brings you to the peaceful village of Skógar and its famous waterfall. The tiny village is really just a collection of houses, a camping site, a folk and transportation museum, and a great small hotel, Hotel Skógar.
On the upper floor, you will find four spacious and beautifully appointed deluxe rooms, while eight double rooms, all with en-suite bathrooms are found on the ground-floor. A welcoming wood-burning fireplace in the dining room sets the tone for romantic dinners and the h
otel’s top-class che
f will not fail to impress with her succulent dishes of Icelandic lamb or fresh fish. Hotel Skógar is ideally situated for visitors wishing to hike over the Fimmvörðuháls route and onwards to Landmannalaugar and Thorsmörk. Outings in the area include the magnificent Dyrhólaey cliffs, teeming with birds in summer and a visit to the Skógar Folk Museum with its original turf houses and turn of the century buildings.10 km to the west of Skógar brings you to Thorvaldseyri Farm’s new visitor centre, which chronicles the eruption of Eyafjallajökull in 2010.
After a day of exploring the area, be sure to make use of Hotel Skógar’s relaxing hot tub and sauna or enjoy a glass of wine out on the deck, creating an altogether wonderful stay at Hotel Skógar - a must while travelling in Iceland this summer.
