Set high above the scenic Hvalfjorfur Fjord, Hotel Glymur is a cosy and welcoming wilderness retreat just 45 minutes from Reykjavik. Filled with artistic decorations, this property oozes homely comfort. Brightly woven rugs, painted ceramics, wooden carvings, photos and paintings from both across the world and the local area dress the interiors, while the staff are wonderfully friendly.

The stylish accommodation ranges from executive rooms to suites with massage bath tubs to impressive villas. All boast unspoilt views which can be luxuriously enjoyed from the villas’ outdoor geothermal jacuzzis. Whether you’re stay is during the summer or the winter, the panoramas here will impress with fjord and mountain views, or Northern Lights gazing in the darker months.

Head out to explore the staggering surrounding scenery on hikes, horse rides and tours before feasting on generous portions of Icelandic cuisine at the restaurant.
