TripAdvisor score

Trip advisorThis hotel won the Travellers' Choice Award, the highest award bestowed by the world’s leading review website. This annual award reflects "the best of the best" for service, quality, and customer satisfaction from hotels & accommodations.

Your Destination

Iceland's south coast is home to some of the country's most visited tourist attractions. The coastline itself is renowned for its beauty, and the towns along the coast are famous for their fresh seafood.

From wonderful waterfalls, to great glaciers, the South has it all. With the Golden Circle route, connecting Þingvellir, Gullfoss and Geysir, located in the area, it is a very popular destination for visitors. Further east along the shore, you will find Skógafoss Waterfall, Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon, Vatnajökull Glacier, and several other natural wonders.

The South is rich in history and culture. Events from the Sagas are remembered in many ways along the coast, and several museums in the area celebrate Icelandic customs and heritage. With much of the country's agricultural products coming from the area, the South is also a fine testimony to Icelandic restaurant culture.

Your Itinerary

With your unlimited car hire mileage you are perfectly equipped to discover Iceland.

While this is not a guided tour the following itinerary is suggested:

Day 1
Arrive at Keflavik airport, collect your hire car and drive to Hótel Grímsborgir, lying in the shadow of Mount Hengil and your home for the following 4 nights. Dine at the hotel restaurant before retiring to look out for the Northern Lights.

DAY 2 - South Coast
After a hearty breakfast, we suggest driving along the south coast to Dyrholaey and on to the promontory from where you will have beaches. Return via Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss, two of Iceland’s picturesque waterfalls, one of which you can walk under. Continue to Eyrarbakki with its weatherboard houses and perhaps a lobster supper at Vid Fjorubordid before returning to the welcoming arms of the Hotel Grimsborgir.

DAY 3 - Golden Circle
Today we recommend the drive that takes in the Golden Circle.Take a short walk around the 3,000 year old Kerid crater before heading to the Geysir area. Here Strokkur spouts impressively every 5-10 minutes and there are steaming fumaroles and hot springs powers down a staircase of falls eventually plummeting down a 32m drop. Fill your afternoon with some glacier snowmobiling on Langjokull or visit Thingvellir National Park, Iceland’s ultimate historical, cultural and geological site.

DAY 4 - Glacier Lagoon
After breakfast you may wish to drive to the Glacier Lagoon. Set back just slightly from the main road, the Lagoon's luminous blue icebergs, some tinted with black volcanic dust, float in the Lagoon for several years gradually self sculpting themselves in to different shapes before finally working there way out to sea.

DAY 5 - UK
Make the most of your last morning in Iceland and stop off at the Blue Lagoon for a relaxing soak in the milky blue waters, before returning your car at the airport in time for your flight home.

PLEASE NOTE:  Any early flight home at 08:00 is applicable on some departure dates which will mean an early start driving back to Keflavik airport.

Your Hotel

Built in 2009, this hotel is a charming addition to the ever growing tourism in Iceland.  Unlike the hotels found in the country's capital, Reykjavik, this hotel is a collection of houses dotted around the area that provide the feeling of being out on the frontier without sacrificing luxury or comfort.

Due to its ideal location in the heart of the Golden Circle, this marvellous hotel is very close to some of Iceland's most amazing attractions such as Gullfoss, Geysir and Thingvellir National Park.

Chic decor, a relaxed atmosphere and cool tones are how you would describe the superior rooms at Hótel Grímsborgir.  Large patrio doors open out onto a communal terrace complete with outside hot tubes where you can sit and admire the view.  And what a view: Hótel Grímsborgir is located next to the beautiful River Sog, Iceland's largest freshwater river, surrounded by picturesque landscapes and breath taking vistas.

Your Board Basis

This offer is based on a bed and breakfast stay.

Your varied breakfast will concist of a selection of freshly baked breads and pastries, as well as cheeses, cold cuts and vegetables as well as lots of fresh fruit.  If you prefer to start your day with a hot meal you can choose from sausages, bacon and scrambled eggs.  All served with freshly  ground coffee.

At Hótel Grímsborgir you will find a newly renovated and greatly stylish restaurant that will endeavour to introduce you to some Icelandic specialities, based on locally sourced ingredients.  Of course, Icelandic food is not for everyone so you can indulge in some international favourites such as Sveppasúpa, or as we would call it: Mushroom Soup.
