Magma Hotel is the perfect stop for a tranquil stay on your way around Iceland’s Ring Road

Immerse yourself in the natural landscape of South Iceland with a stay at Magma Hotel. This lakeside accommodation is small and intimate, giving you a personalised experience with all the benefits of a boutique hotel. 

Set amidst the stunning south coast, your surroundings will give you a glimpse into the serene Icelandic countryside. You’ll have views of mossy lava fields, glacial rivers, volcanoes, with the largest ice cap in Iceland as a backdrop. 

Even though it is a stone’s throw from the Ring Road, Magma will give you an off-the-beaten-path feel. This remote location is perfect in winter to witness the all-natural lightshow of the aurora borealis, away from city lights.

  • Good to know: Your personal travel consultant at Nordic Visitor will book you into a room at Magma Hotel that’s perfectly suited to you. Don’t hesitate to speak to them about any preferences you have.

In the turfhouse rooms, you can expect modern amenities and Nordic charm, with everything you need for a comfortable stay.

There are double or twin rooms, deluxe rooms, or family accommodation. Each one offers an en-suite bathroom, Icelandic toiletries, an espresso coffee machine, and a mini-fridge. In addition, you’ll enjoy in-floor heating, a TV with Netflix, and a sliding door to your very own private patio.

The on-site restaurant is called Bistro 1783, named after the year the Lakagígar volcano erupted and created the neighbouring lava field. Savor a hearty breakfast buffet or home-style dinner here while soaking up the views.

Located near Kirkjubæjarklaustur, Magma is within easy reach of the spectacular Fjaðrárgljúfur canyon. Within an hour’s drive, you could be at the black sand beach of Reynisfjara. Or, if you’re driving Route 1 counterclockwise, go admire the icebergs at Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon or at Diamond Beach.
