Interesting places and scenery near Fosshotel Reykholt, West Iceland

Reykholt in Borgarfjordur

The village of Reykholt

Reykholt was the home of Snorri Sturlusson, one of Iceland’s greatest Saga writer, poet and historian. Today, Reykholt is still one of Iceland’s main historical and cultural sites. Here you will find two beautiful churches, Snorri’s natural hot pool, Snorralaug, and Snorrastofa, an exhibit of Snorri’s writings and research centre for medieval studies. In the park is a statue of Snorri by the Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland. Archaeological excavations are carried out by the National Museum of Iceland.
Hraunfossar (1)

Hraunfossar and Barnafoss

A series of waterfalls pouring over the side of Hvítá river canyon from beneath Hallmundarhraun lava field. Just upstream is beautiful Barnafoss (Children’s falls). Hraunfossar and Barnafoss are neither particularly high, nor have a great volume of water, yet they are enchanting. The water is often pastel shade of blue, rather than the muddy brown of Iceland’s other glacial rivers. From here you can walk into the surrounding lava fields.
Langjokull Glacier West Iceland

Langjökull – Iceland’s second largest glacier

The most popular glacier for hiking in Iceland is Langjökull – the country’s second largest glacier and the glittering diamond in the Vesturland’s crown. Living up to its name which means ‘the Long Glacier’, Langjökull offers a 367 miles sq (950 km sq) stretch of ice cap, ideal for snowmobiling and admiring the winter wonderland scenery. However, that’s not all Langjökull has to offer: beneath the frosty surface lies a network of vast manmade ice caves where a world of shimmering blue and silver ice is waiting to be explored.
