Iceland: the original land of ice and fire. Just a short drive from the capital city, Reykjavík, is Hotel Glymur which overlooks the azure waters of the Whale Fjord. The hotel was named after the Glymur waterfall – which is one of the highest in Europe. You can visit it during your stay. Run by a husband and wife team, the décor is quirky and comfortable and features many rare artifacts from the owner’s private collection. There is a modern conferencing suite and many warm reading rooms to suit your purpose. Take a drink at the honesty bar and then head to bed in your beautiful mezzanine suite. In the day, walk along the coastline where cliffs bunch by the sea like a rocky duvet. Then return to the hotel and gaze at the marvelous view while sitting in the bubbly hot tub. Book in summer and enjoy round-the-clock daylight or choose to go in winter and catch a glimpse of the elusive Northern Lights.
