Adventure

Skálakot is perfectly placed for making the most of an Icelandic adventure. In the southern region of the country, you will be located within an easy distance from the Eyjafjallajökull glacier and the Mýrdalsjökull glacier where you can go snowmobiling in a stunning setting. The hotel is based on the family’s own private farm, where gentle Icelandic-bred horses can take guests out on a scenic ride, along with dedicated guides and horse trainers, regardless of your ability. You can also discover the Fjallabak Nature Reserve with a bumby Jeep tour or hike the Sólheimajökull glacier to see more of the breathtaking landscapes.

Lakes & Mountains

Surrounded by outstanding natural beauty, it is essential you venture out to see the surrounding mountains of Southern Iceland. There are plenty of hiking trails around Skálakot that will take you up above the farm to admire the magnificent views, while fitness fans can even take a jogging route. You may also wish to experience the geothermal swimming pools, set outdoors and surrounded by the ruggedly beautiful hills. To learn how people used to live in this environment, you can visit the Skógar Folk Museum, where you can see the tools, turf houses and artwork that came from inhabitants centuries ago.
