The community is moulded by Europe’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull, and it’s creeping icefalls. The spectacular natural scenery is absolutely unique and surely it’s enough to point out locations such as Skaftafell, Jökulsárlón, Skálafellsjökull, Geitafell and Lónsöræfi, which are located within short driving distances from Hotel Jökull.
The nearest town is Höfn in Hornafjörður. It is the hometown of the Icelandic langoustine and has a great variety of locally produced food that can be ordered of menus at restaurants in the region. In addition to the variety in local food, the clean and unspoiled nature is a hallmark of the Vatnajökull Region.
