South Iceland hotel re-opens for the summer

Hotel SkogarHotel Skogar, a luxury hotel in south Iceland, has opened its doors to guests for the busy summer season.
Situated by the world-famous Skogarfoss waterfall in south Iceland, Hotel Skogar is a small luxury hotel with a reputation for combining quality, comfort and first-class service.

The hotel is popular with both foreign and Icelandic guests and is a favourite location for couples, writers and travellers looking to escape to the countryside for a relaxing and revitalising break away.

For most of the year, Hotel Skogar is only available for groups and tours, but from 1st May to 1st October the hotel opens to individual members of the public. The hotel has 12 intimate rooms, all with private facilities, an outdoor sauna and hot tub area as well as a gourmet restaurant.

Only a few hours drive from Reykjavik, south Iceland is a popular travel destination thanks to the wealth of activities on offer. Possibilities include bird watching at the spectacular Dyrholaey ocean cliffs, walking or windsurfing on the black sand beaches at Vik and visiting the Myrdalsjokull glacier with a snowmobile, jeep or ice climbing tour.

Salmon fishing and horseback riding are also popular, as are super jeep tours up into the wild Highlands. Skogar is also one of the starting points of Iceland‘s most famous hike – the Landmannalaugar to Thorsmork walk – a 4 day route that takes hikers through some of Iceland’s most magical and spectacular scenery.

For those more intent on relaxation, Hotel Skogar is the perfect romantic getaway for weddings, honeymooners and anybody else wanting an intimate break away from the rest of the world.
