Hótel Skálholt has 18 rooms that are spacious and cozy in a beautiful setting on the Golden Circle route.
The area is quiet and peaceful and a perfect place to relax and enjoy the amazing views. When the night sky is clear it’s often possible to see the Northern Lights when they are in season. Hotel Skálholt is very central when it comes to taking day trips on the Golden Circle, the South Coast and the highlands in Iceland. You can visit places such as Thorsmork, Landmannalaugar, Vestmannaeyjar, Seljalandsfoss and many more.
Hotel Skálholt is open all year round. Hvönn Restaurant in Skálholt is open from 10 AM – 4 PM and is a great place to stop for a meal on your Golden Circle tour. Hvönn means Angelica, which is thought to be the prime herb in the Icelandic flora. In Hvönn Restaurant we focus on old traditional food but we put a modern twist on it. We work a lot with fermentation like lactic acid, cambucha, and kefir. These are storing methods that Icelanders have used from the first settlements in order to survive harsh winters. But now we use them to make unique and fantastic flavors. We have a bar at the restaurant where we serve both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Come visit us and get a taste of Iceland.
