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.

is lovely and warm and we spend a pleasant evening playing cards and cooking.
Now off to bed and Tom is already asking to borrow one of my eye- mask/
sleeping black out thingies which he has been mocking me for bringing. It’s
gone 11 and it’s still light!
... axe before leading us on to the glacier. We spent the hike learning about glacier formations, recent volcanic eruptions and local folk tales as we admired the natural beauty on which we carefully stamped around. As the sun was glaring this day, we peeled off layers and quenched our thirst directly from streams flowing swiftly through the glacial ice.
After our hike we nourished our bodies with Icelandic lamb soup at the visitor center before embarking on a 1.5 km hike ...
