Type: Hotel

Grade: Standard

Introduction

Found only a short distance east of Vik, this hotel provides 62 guestrooms alongside stunning views of the sparkling Mýrdalsjökull Glacier. A classically-decorated hotel, the Hotel Katla is within easy reach of Vik's black sand beach, as well as the Skogar Museum, making this an attractive centre for those travelling on a self drive.

The hotel staff is happy to help arrange activities in the area, including snowmobiling over the glacier itself, guided glacier walks, or horseback excursions on the iconic and powerful Icelandic horse. Run by a friendly local staff, the hotel's in-house restaurant serves a buffet breakfast followed by local specialties, expertly prepared, for dinner. The hotel bar features local beers alongside international favourites, and is a popular place to unwind after dinner. There are also kitchen facilities and an outdoor barbeque for those who would prefer to self-cater. Harnessing the island's incredible geothermal power, the hotel also provides guests with free access to four outdoor, geothermal hot tubs.
