Found beside the Snæfellsjökull glacier and a vast, windswept beach, within a lava field on the dramatic peninsula, Hotel Budir is surrounded by an array of surreal scenery and indeed, a true wilderness retreat.

Settle into your room here and look out to these incredible views of mountains and inlets from your room’s cushioned window-seat. Then, relax from your day of glacier hiking with a soak in your rolltop bath.

Further cosy, scenic spots can be found throughout the property. The common room is filled with leather sofas sitting by roaring fires and large picture windows, while the bar offers a telescope and floor-to-ceiling views of seals playing in the bay. There is also a sense of both tradition and romance here, from the sepia photos to the framed memorabilia that adorn the walls and the restaurant’s candle-lit tables which create a lovely gourmet setting.
