Type: Hotel

Grade: Standard


This friendly and family-run hotels offers 88 rooms on top of a hill near Vik and has magnificent views of the surrounding area. Growing quickly, in 1993 the hotel was just a small guesthouse-bb of six rooms, however the beauty of the Dyrholaey peninsula and the surrounding landscape means that a steady stream of visitors frequent this stunning area.

Beyond the sea, the rolling farmland and the Dyrholaey national nature reserve, which is Iceland's southernmost point, the Mýrdalsjökull icecap can be seen, glittering in the northern sun. Festooned with natural beauty, day-trips from the Hotel Dyrholaey include trips to the puffin nests on the Dyrholaey Cliffs as well as hiking trips up to the nearby glaciers themselves. Meanwhile, the birders in your group may choose to simply explore the area around the hotel as the sounds of golden plovers and oyster catchers frequently start your day.

The dining room offers tasty Icelandic dishes served alongside magnificent bay views and is open all day. We suggest that you sample one of the local beers also on offer. Each room is en suite and includes a TV and electric kettle for your use.
