TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Skaftafell
I was the only guest in the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food at dinner and breakfast was excellent.
The bedroom was comfortable. I thought the bathroom was a bit too small.
During the night my toes felt cold. Was the room heating turned down at night? All I know is that at other accommodation in Iceland I would often feel too hot at night.
I did not like having to pay for internet access. I was used to free wifi at even small guesthouses.

We made it to …
Now seeing more of the Iceland I wanted to see, We left Vik early to drive the two hours to Jokulsarloin for sunrise. Jokulsarlon is a glacier lagoon where chunks of ice calve off the glacier and drift into the lagoon on there way out to see, The glacier is the Vatnojokull Glacier which is the largest in all Europe. If you look at a map of Iceland …
... sun shone all day which meant there was a lot of movement on the ice quite spooky to hear water underneath you and ice falling from from the top of the mountain.
Final stop before rest was Jokulsarlon at the base of Europes biggest Glazier - Vatnajuokull where the icebergs are breaking away and drifting out to sea. Two large water worlds meeting - simply mesmerizing..
