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.

The park lies on the west side of Vatnajökull - Europe's largest glacier. Skaftafell is the name of the hill that runs along one of the glacier fingers and between the mountains. There is ...
... along--mostly underwater, with only ten percent of their bulk showing above the water level.
The black color you see on the ice is not dirt as you might guess, but volcanic ash and rock.
After a lovely morning at the lagoon, we went on to Skaftafell National Park, where we looked at an old sod church, then hiked along ...
