Höfn HI Hostel

With the North Atlantic on one side and Europe‘s largest glacier on the other, Höfn is a paradise for photographers and those simply wanting to explore. The laid-back fishing town may be small but has plenty of culture, with a selection of museums and amazing cuisine- you’ll probably notice the lobster symbols everywhere, there is a festival every summer celebrating them. With its modern interior and large facilities, Höfn HI Hostel is a perfect place to cook a good meal, play some board games and get plenty of sleep for the next days travel.

In the area:

  • Vatnajökull National Park offers plenty of opportunities for adventure, including various glacier exploration tours, horse riding tours and spectacular hiking trails.
  • Höfn is a good starting point for a hike in Lónsöræfi, one of Iceland's best kept secrets.
  • Lounge in the Hoffell hot tubs carved in stone, and look out on the view of the glacier.
