Why We Love This Hotel

  • 5 minutes’ walk from "one of the world’s most beautiful beaches" (Lonely Planet)
  • Hotel opened in June, 2015
  • On-site restaurant serves local fare & there’s a happy hour in the bar from 4-6pm
  • Rooms at the front of the building have views of the coastline


"The little town of Vík has three distinctions. One, it's Iceland's southernmost point. Two, it's the rainiest place on the island. And three, it has one of the most beautiful beaches in the world", says Lonely Planet. Just five minutes' walk from this black-sand beach is the Icelandair Hotel Vik, which opened in June 2015. 

The property has dramatic views of the nearby cliffs through floor-to-ceiling windows. Worth a visit nearby are the Reynisdrangar Pillars (10 minutes by car), the 100-year-old Dyrhólaey lighthouse (20 minutes), and the impressive Mýrdalsjökull glacier.

The hotel is modern and minimal, with nods to the surrounding coastline in the art on the walls. The Berg restaurant serves a varied continental breakfast including cereal, toast, cold meats, cheese, fruit, waffles and smoked salmon. Lunch and dinner is served every day and features local fare -- try the Taste of Iceland platter with local Arctic char mousse, smoked and cured lamb. There's a happy hour in the bar from 4-6pm.

Upstairs, there are 46 rooms, with heated floors and powerful rainfall showers. Wi-Fi is free for room types higher than Standard Rooms, and rooms at the front of the building have views of the coastline. Aurora Borealis (northern lights) sightings are common here from September-April, and the hotel offers well-timed wake up calls if guests are interested in seeing them.
