Hotel Glymur - One Of The World’s Best Hot Tubs Is In IcelandHotel  

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, one of the highest in Europe. You can visit it during your stay.

The décor is quirky and comfortable and features many rare artifacts from the owner’s private collection run by a husband and wife team.

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.

During 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.

The impressive Hallgrim's Church in Hvalfjord was built in 1957 as a tribute to the famous 17th-century poet, Hallgrimur Petursson.

The beautiful stained glass was created by a renowned female artist, Gerdur Helgadóttir.
