3* Klaustur Hotel - Kirkjubæjarklaustur
Located in the South-Eastern part of Iceland, a place famous for its scenery of the biggest glacier in Europe, Vatnajökull, and right opposite lava fields, Hotel Klaustur opened its doors in 1993. The emphasis has always been to provide a warm welcome for guests and the hotel was renovated in 2018 and re-opened recently with a unique brand identity – a fusion of modern Icelandic culture and historical heritage of the country.
The hotel acquired the name of its village – Kirkjubæjarklaustur, or “Klaustur” as it is usually referred to by locals, a small village located on the famous Ring Road between the two of Iceland’s most famous glaciers, Vatnajökull and Mýrdalsjökull. Several tourist attractions are situated near the town, including Vatnajökull National Park, the canyon Fjaðrárgljúfur, the Laki craters, the Church floor, the Dwarf Rocks and the Glacier Lagoon. Furthermore, while driving to Klaustur, you can enjoy scenic views of waterfalls such as Seljalandsfoss and Skógarfoss and the black beach Reynisfjara.
- In the restaurant they mostly use produce from local producers, Icelandic Skyr and of course the world famous Arctic char. The Arctic char is raised in the water that comes directly from under Skaftáreldarhraun lava field and is widely considered the best char available. Locally produced lamb is another highlight on KLAUSTUR Restaurant’s menu and is renowned as one of the best in Iceland.
- Enjoy a drink or two at the hotel bar which was recently renovated and has an extremely relaxed and cosy atmosphere. The bar is open every day from 12 pm to midnight. They offer a couple of Icelandic beers on draft at all times as well as several types of bottled beer. Furthermore they have a wide selection of cocktails and wine and have a happy hour offers every day from 5-7 and 10-11!
