Perched on the edge of Mt. Hengill overlooking Thingvellir Lake, this stylish Scandi-chic hotel draws inspiration from the nature by which it is surrounded, with its living wall of Icelandic flora, organic fairtrade bed linen and 10 metre geothermally-heated outdoor relaxation pool.
All 44 modern guest rooms feature organic linen and towels, satellite television, private bathroom with environmentally responsible water-saving shower, as well as luxurious cosmetics from Sóley Organic made with handpicked Icelandic herbs.
The hotel’s Silfra Restaurant offers seasonal, contemporary Nordic cuisine with an emphasis on sustainable, farm-fresh produce cooked slowly for added flavour. The chef uses traditional Icelandic ingredients to create modern dishes such as freshly caught Arctic char from Thingvallavatn served with pickles or the unique crème brûlée made with thick and creamy Icelandic Skyr. After dinner, head to the comfy Northern Lights Bar for coffee or perhaps try one of the many microbrewed Icelandic beers on offer while enjoying views over Thingvellir Lake.
