Hotel | This hotel offers a unique experience with its award-winning architecture. It blends in comfortably with its surroundings close to the Mývatn volcanic lake, and the rooms have an airy, Scandinavian feel that you are sure to enjoy.
Award-winning architecture in natural surrounding
Welcome to Fosshotel Mývatn, situated on the northern side of the beautiful lake of the same name. Here, in the north-eastern part of Iceland, you can see what many people consider to be the most beautiful natural scenery of the whole island. The hotel is situated about fifty kilometres from Akureyri Airport and blends in comfortably with its natural surroundings. The hotel has been designed by award-winning architects, which you will notice right away as soon as you approach the low-rise building clad in larch wood, with its remarkably low environmental impact.
The hotel exudes a modern Scandinavian touch throughout – from the restaurant and the lobby through to the rooms. The hotel lets in the beautiful, wild landscape outside through its large windows, especially in the restaurant. And although the hotel alone is worth a visit, its surroundings are even more spectacular, with volcanic activity, birdlife, northern lights, fish and geothermally heated natural baths – to mention just a few of the attractions.
The hotel is often complimented for its location, views and its tasty breakfast.
