Recommended place to stay:

Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon

Last updated: 15 December, 2022

You can’t miss this imposing hotel as you drive along the south coast: clad in black timber and glass, its blocky, architectural profile stands out against the hills like a contemporary sculpture.

It’s part of the Islandshotel group, which is known for its contemporary decor and luxurious, modern style. The Glacier Lagoon is up there with the best of the group: chic rooms, picture windows and an ultra-refined restaurant make this one of the best places to stay on the south coast.

Skaftafell National Park is only 30km northwest, and (despite the name) Jokulsarlon is roughly the same distance to the northeast. These are two of Iceland’s top outdoor nature attractions – making this a great base for wilderness fans.
