Looking for an Icelandic hotel that offers easy access to popular destinations and a peaceful, cosy getaway from the bustle of life? Look no further than Landhotel, the ideal base for touring the stunning south coast of Iceland.

Landhotel nestles in the peaceful surroundings of a picturesque mountain range in South Iceland. With far-reaching views of nature to one side and the famous volcanoes Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull rising majestically in the distance on the other, this modern hotel is a jewel in a perfect landscape.

An environmentally friendly choice

Opened in 2019, Landhotel is designed with the environment in mind, which is evident in the wood and stone interior, and the aluminium-clad exterior.

“We have eliminated the use of plastic in our rooms and restaurant, and everything is recycled. The heating and hot water is sourced through our geothermal system, and we have stations for charging electric cars.” Says Dýrleif Guðmundsdóttir, sales and marketing manager at Landhotel.

With 69 spacious rooms over three floors, the inside reflects the nature on the outside. The colour scheme on each floor symbolically represents the Icelandic highlands, lowlands and waterlands.

From Farm to Table

When it comes to dining, the hotel’s restaurant serves delicious, locally sourced ingredients in a cosy and intimate setting with a fantastic view of the surrounding mountain range. The menu features a variety of dishes inspired by the flavours of the region.

“We want to create a warm and inviting atmosphere that immediately puts guests at ease,” says Guðmundsdóttir, and they have certainly done that. With attention to acoustics, the restaurant and other public spaces have been adjusted so guests can talk undisturbed by other visitors’ activities.

Landhotel can arrange excursions and activities to help you unwind and connect with nature. Relax in the Spa, go for a super-jeep adventure into the wilderness (with an experienced guide and driver), or see Iceland from above on an exciting helicopter ride.

Without light pollution, the Northern Lights are easily experienced from the hotel or while relaxing in the outdoor jacuzzi. But that isn’t all – Landhotel is working with architects to create a glass extension that will enable guests to bathe in these awe-inspiring moving lights, in warm comfort. Indeed, with everything Landhotel has to offer, a stayover is almost a must on your journey through Iceland.
