Fosshotel Myvatn, Northeast Iceland

Off the well-trodden path of South Iceland, Fosshotel Myvatn is putting the northeast on the map. Here, 92 rooms sit perched above the shores of Lake Myvatn with views that extend far across the volcanic landscapes that surround it. Check into the architecturally stunning hotel and discover modern interiors, innovative cuisine and adventures that will have you never wanting to leave.


100km and an hour from Iceland’s northern capital, Akureyri, Fosshotel Myvatn unveils a whole new corner of this awe-inspiring land. Overlooking the expanse of Lake Myvatn, the possibilities are seemingly endless with the relaxation of the Myvatn Nature Baths in one direction and the adrenaline of a super jeep tour in the other. The perfect spot to head for if you’re looking to escape the crowds, Myvatn will keep you coming back to Iceland.

Your Room

Tying in with their surroundings, each of the 92 rooms is thoroughly modern by design but adopt a colour scheme more in keeping with the landscapes that lie outside the windows. Dusky greys, moss greens and touches of larch wood all allow the nature to be brought from the outside in, whilst the use of low environmental impact materials guarantee the protection of those landscapes for years to come.

Why we like it

What we love most about Iceland is the staggering ecosystem that it presents us with. The landscapes here are unlike anywhere else on earth – and so, so too are the experiences. So, when a hotel is doing all that they can to preserve that ecosystem for another generation, it’s safe to say we’re a fan. Fosshotel Myvatn is both architecturally stunning whilst environmentally low impact and that’s a winning combination in our books.
