The perfect base for travellers looking to explore the sights and sounds of Lake Myvatn, Hotel Reykjahlid is easily accessible from the lively capital city Reykjavik. Commanding an enviable location on the banks of Lake Myvatn in north east Iceland, the hotel is located in a treasure trove of unique nature and birdlife.
Furnished country-house style with peach walls, white linens and wooden floors, the nine rooms at Hotel Reykjahlid exude a sense of traditional charm. Rooms are a mix between single and double, accommodation between two and four people, and feature newly-fitted and comfortable beds with views across the crystal-clear Lake Myvatn.
The Gamli Bistro prides itself upon serving traditional, Icelandic local food. Fresh fish is caught and sourced daily and meat from local farmers produce dishes such as Icelandic lamb meat soup and hot spring bread with smoked arctic char. The menu ensures a range of tastes are catered for ranging from grilled sandwiches and a selection of soups to hamburgers, roast chicken Icelandic desserts, cakes and waffles served with ice cream.
The hotel offers a golf course with beautiful views across the lake and surrounding scenery, alongside the opportunity to climb on an Icelandic horse for a trip around the lake. However, be sure not to miss the Myvatn Nature Baths, an impressive man-made hot spring and geothermal lagoon that characterises a trip to Iceland, with steam baths and rejuvenating waters.
