Nature and Adventure
Nestled in the unspoiled nature of West Iceland, Hotel Husafell is surrounded by magnificent woodlands, atmospheric lava fields, tumbling waterfalls and breathtaking glaciers.
There are ten area hiking trails that wind through Icelandic birch trees, glacial rivers, canyons, and colorful mountains. Visitors to Husafell enjoy easy access to glacier adventures on nearby Langjokull as well exploring Vidgelmir, the world’s largest lava cave.
The glaciers and lava fields surrounding Husafell provide more than just gorgeous views. The power from these natural resources is harnessed to generate an ample supply of 100% clean, renewable energy. Hotel Husafell is the only hotel in Iceland that is fully self-sustainable, running on renewable energy produced onsite in hydro-electric and geothermal power generators.
Nature Inspired Design
Hotel Husafell is an eco-friendly oasis of luxurious comfort that embraces Icelandic artistry and local authenticity at its finest. The property features an unobtrusive design in harmony with nature built from eco-friendly materials using sustainable energy.
The 48 well-appointed guestrooms embrace the surrounding nature with large windows and showcase local culture with sheepskin chairs, bath products made with Icelandic herbs, and paintings by the world-renowned Husafell artist, Pall Gudmundsson. All guest stays at Hotel Husafell include free Wi-Fi, parking, and a daily sumptuous breakfast buffet.
Guests of the resort-style property enjoy complimentary entry to the outdoor thermal pools and hot tubs, free mountain bike rental, and access to the GEO certified golf course offering Midnight Sun tee times in summer. Hotel Husafell also hosts weekend campfires in the summer with live music and free Northern Lights wake-up-calls in winter. With all this excitement, why would you go anyplace else?
The hotel’s gourmet restaurant features floor-to-ceiling windows where diners gaze upon mountains and glaciers glistening under the Midnight Sun of summer or the Northern Lights of winter. The Nordic-inspired menu owes its flavor and richness to the mouth-wateringly fresh ingredients of locally caught seafood, game and high quality produce grown in nearby geothermal greenhouses.
