Experience in Klaustur
After a good night sleep in a modern and comfortable Hotel, a cozy guesthouse or our beautiful campsite our guest would enjoy a rich and tasty breakfast made of products from the local farmers. Then our guest would take a walk in the unspoiled nature, breathing clean and fresh air, exploring the nature and the unique landscape. Majestic waterfalls of various sizes can be found in the area and glaciers crown the view. The famous Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon is close by, and Vatnajökull Glacier, the biggest glacier in Europe dominates the horizon to the east and we have several natural wonders like canyon Fjarðárgljúfur. Our guest can go to the black beaches and listen to the ocean bashing against the shore and watch various kind of seabirds. Our guest can hire a bike to explore the area, or go mountain biking with local guides in the extraordinary nature of the Laki craters area, crossing some unbridged rivers an d through gravel roads. For those who would rather enjoy motorized adventures, it’s possible to go on guided trips on the glaciers exploring ice caves, or jeep safaris across the highlands, Iceland’s biggest untouched interior, or go on Quad biking tours on those endless black beaches. Hiking has long been a popular activity in Kirkjubæjarklaustur and many beautiful trails can be found, from shorter day hikes to multi-day treks. If our guest wants to see an original Icelandic farm, a show with sheepdogs working with Icelandic sheep would do the trick.
In the Valley season by season:
After an adventurous day, our guest could go to the swimming pool for relaxation in the hot tub, and if in need of exercise we have a gym. After swimming our guest would be hungry and would dine in one of the Hotels or go to a restaurant in the town or in the countryside. Who offer local products like our local char which is raised in crystal clear spring water that has been filtered through layers of natural la va rock, having originated from the Vatnajokull Glacier, meat from lamb that roam free in the mountains the whole summer and beef from local farmers. In the wintertime, our guest would end the day by watching the northern lights in the sky and in the summertime read an Icelandic criminal novel the whole night without turning the lights on. For a souvenir, our guest would buy an Icelandic wool sweater in the local handcraft shop made by an Icelander with love.
