Hotel Laki, South Iceland

Immerse yourself in mysterious Icelandic countryside and stay among rolling hillside in between glaciers and volcanoes. Hotel Laki, Scandinavian in style, places guests within close proximity to some of the country’s most iconic landmarks and provides them with spectacular views of Iceland’s landscapes from vertical, panoramic windows.


Located only a short distance away from Skaftafell National Park, Hotel Laki sits in the middle of vast countryside just outside the small town of Kirkjubæjarklaustur. Guests should experience the glacier lagoons, the breathtaking Fjarðárgljúfur canyon and fishing in Lake Vikuflod where you can catch Arctic Charr.

Your Room

Sweeping vistas can be admired from the modern rooms or cosy cottages. With 24-hour room service and free WIFI, the hotel is unique to this rural area of South East Iceland. Don’t miss the local produce served at the hotel’s buffet restaurant, with succulent meat from local farmers and freshly caught fish from neighbouring rivers.

Why we like it

Gaze up at the night sky to see the aurora borealis from Hotel Laki’s rooftop terrace. Treat yourself to a delightful hot chocolate in the winter months to keep you warm as you wait to see dancing colours of emerald green, cobalt, magenta and violet. The hotel is family-run, and if the sky is particularly clear, they will even call your room to inform you so you don’t miss out.
