We stayed at Skalakot Manor last week and we were very lucky to book the spacious and very comfortable Master suite on the third floor. The staff is very nice and we were greeted and immediately made to feel at home.

About Skalakot Lodge
Located between two of Icelands main attractions along the southern coast, Seljalandsfoss and Skogarfoss waterfalls, lies the brand new Skalakot Lodge. Built as an extension upon the Skalkot family farm, who have lived in the farm for over 7 generations, Skalakot offers a truly unique sense of cosy living with the locals. There are 14 simple yet elegant rooms decorated in an Art Deco style with plenty of creature comfort, but the activities and scenary are the real draw.
Get to know the farms pure breed Icelandic horses on a choice of guided day rides, or head off into the landscape along plenty of hiking trails. Or head to the nearby Eyjafjallajokull glacier and volcano for an exhilarating snowmobile adventure, where you can take in the views from the top of the caldera.
Back at the hotels Manor Hotel Restaurant, seasonal specialities such as fresh salmon and arctic char are accompanied by home grown vegetables, and round off the day soaking in an outdoor hot tub whilst the stars twinkle above.
Skalakot Lodge is located in Southern Iceland approximately two hours from Reykjavik and perfectly placed to explore the wide expanses of the highlands, glaciers and volcanoes.
How to get there
Skalakot Lodge is a two hour road transfer from Reykjavik Airport.
