Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon, East Iceland

In a country brimming with natural spectacles, it’s not always easy to feel like you’re seeing it all. To the rescue though, beneath sweeping snow-capped hills amidst some of Iceland’s most spectacular sights, comes Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon. Super-secluded and contemporary in style, the dark wood dwelling hosts a bar, restaurant and 104 rooms with tranquil views of the surrounding scenery. In an area primed with hikes, climbing and a plethora of natural wonders, Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon makes the ideal venue to explore offbeat Iceland.


Three miles inland from striking black-sand beaches and a few hours drive south-east from Reykjavik, Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon is a welcome escape into the Icelandic wilderness. Isolated as it may be, the perks are aplenty; find yourself perfectly positioned to explore Vatnajökull National Park, Skaftafell and the mesmerising icebergs of Jökulsárlón, all within 20 miles of the hotel.

Your Room

Spacious and stylish, Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon’s rooms and suites offer modern comfort with all the trimmings. After a long day exploring, kick off your boots and return to clean lines, subtle greys and an irresistible king-sized bed. With unspoiled Icelandic countryside on your doorstep, make the most of the scenery and opt for an ocean-facing room to enjoy peaceful, undisturbed views out to sea.

Why we like it

With minimal light pollution, the sky above Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon is no stranger to the Northern Lights. Gaze out from your room to see the Aurora Borealis at work, and marvel at the greens and blues soaring across the sky. Worried about missing it? Make sure to sign up for a wake-up service and cross your fingers for a front-row ticket to nature’s greatest light show.
