Hotel Húsafell in the National Geographic
Hótel Húsafell in Borgarfjörður, West Iceland, has made a National Geographic list of Unique Lodges of the World.
This is the first hotel in the Nordic countries to make the list which is comprised of 57 hotels the world over. All the lodges have to meet certain standards of environmental friendliness and sustainability.
The National Geographic writes:
"This peaceful retreat is an oasis of Nordic elegance whose glass walls and textured furnishings showcase and complement the rippling hills, glacial rivers, and ice-capped peaks that surround it. Guests can play golf under the midnight sun in the summertime; be dazzled by the northern lights in winter, when the skies light up several times a week; and soak in the thermal pools any time of year. And while that might be enough to keep you on the property, just outside Húsafell, Iceland’s lesser known treasures await exploration: Langjökull glacier, enormous lava caves, waterfalls, and vibrant art and storytelling traditions."
Hotel manager of Hótel Húsafell, Unnar Bergþórsson, says they are very honoured to be selected. "We believe we run a great hotel, we opened in June 2015 and have always put emphasis on guests experiencing professional service and comfort within our hotel. We also support culture and nature in the area and offer leisure activities and events."
