Located on the Snæfelsness peninsula in West Iceland about a two-hour drive from Reykjavik, this remote luxury hotel in a beautiful landscape offers an atmosphere of relaxed elegance and is definitely Iceland’s most iconic country hotel. The hotel restaurant is one of Iceland’s best, with ingredients sourced from local farms and fishermen. This is also the perfect place from which to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights, as its remote location means there is less light pollution. Each room has a view of the varied surrounding landscape of ocean, Snaefellsjokull glacier, the mountains, the lava field, or the iconic black church in the field nearby. The hotel lounge has a beautiful visual display of the hotel’s history and artist’s renderings of Icelandic fairytales.
