Northern Light Inn

Expedition Image

Type: Hotel

Grade: Standard


This delightful 32-room hotel sits on the volcanic Reykjanes Peninsula just a 20 minute drive from the airport and within walking distance of the Blue Lagoon.

All 32 light and airy rooms are well appointed with supremely comfortable beds and cosy Icelandic down comforters. The dining room has enormous windows, looking out onto the lavascape that so defines the Reykjanes region.

A stay here is all about incredible views, especially of the northern lights. A 360° observation lounge on the second floor provides a very comfortable place to relax after dinner and watch for the aurora while the hotel offers a wake-up call service, in case they make an appearance while you are asleep. However, please note that there will be some light pollution from the nearby geothermal heat exchange, which provides clean, green energy and the water that feeds the lagoon.

There is a complimentary pick up and drop off from Keflavik International Airport as well as complimentary shuttle transfer to the Blue Lagoon or you can walk to the latter, approximately 20-30 minutes walk. A shuttle to and from the nearby village of Grindavik is also available at a small fee to be paid locally.
