Where to stay in Iceland
Iceland has a good range of boutique lodges, cosy cabins, and larger chain hotels. However, it is not an economical country to visit – the term ‘budget accommodation’ must be used loosely. Often self-catering accommodation can be fun for families and helps with cost – stock up in Reykjavik before you set off on your road trip and enjoy flexibility and comfort without blowing the budget.
Bed & Breakfast
If cost is a concern, Iceland offers a unique option known as ‘sleeping-bag’ accommodation. This is usually simple but clean accommodation offering bed and breakfast (and sometimes hot tubs or swimming pools) where you provide your own bedding/sleeping bags. En suite private rooms are available for families and this option proves popular for those happy with simple facilities, often in superb locations.
Push the boat out
However if you can accept that a trip to Iceland is going to cost a certain amount (please see pricing guide for more information) then why not make most of the ‘Location, Location, Location’ ethos and stay at the Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon.
This can be part of both summer and winter itineraries as the hotel lies in a dramatic location between Skaftafell and the Jökulsárlón Glacier, right beneath the highest peak of Iceland, Hvannadalshnúkur. Soak in a hot tub and admire the stunning surrounding landscape after a day amongst the black sand beaches, lava fields, waterfalls, ice caps, and glaciers.
