Skalakot Lodge

South Iceland, Iceland


Stay at Skalakot Lodge

Located between two of Icelands main attractions along the southern coast, Seljalandsfoss and Skogarfoss waterfalls, lies Skalakot Lodge. Built as an extension upon the Skalakot family farm, a family who have lived here farm for over 7 generations, Skalakot offers a truly unique sense of cosy living with the locals. There are 14 simple yet elegant rooms decorated in an Art Deco style with plenty of creature comfort, but the activities and scenery are the real draw. Get to know the farm’s pure breed Icelandic horses on a choice of guided day rides, or head off into the landscape along a choice of

hiking trails. Alternatively, head to the nearby Eyjafjallajokull glacier and volcano for an exhilarating snowmobile adventure, where you can take in the views from the top of the caldera. Back at the hotel’s restaurant, seasonal specialities such as fresh salmon and arctic char are accompanied by homegrown vegetables, local treats for an all-round immersive Icelandic day. Round off the day soaking in an outdoor hot tub whilst the stars twinkle above.
