Hotel Skogar opens for the summer

Hotel Skogar South IcelandOne of Iceland‘s most popular hotels has re-opened its doors to guests for the busy summer season.

Hotel Skogar is a small luxury hotel located by the 60m Skogarfoss waterfall near Vik in south Iceland.

The hotel is popular with both foreign and Icelandic guests and is a favourite location for writers and travellers escaping to the countryside. It is also often used a wedding and honeymoon destination and a romantic retreat for couples.

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 en-suite rooms, an outdoor sauna and hot tub area and a gourmet restaurant.

South Iceland is one of the most-visited areas of the country due to its proximity to Reykjavik and the number of activities on offer. Popular attractions 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.

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 spectacular scenery.
