Hotels in Iceland
Like most tourist services in Iceland, hotels are also known for their high standards and efficient staff. Throughout Iceland, you will find clean and comfortable hotels that will provide you exactly what you are looking for after a day of sightseeing. Hotels in Iceland are divided into two main categories: private hotels and hotel networks like Foss Hotels, Icelandair Hotels and Kea Hotels.
All the hotels are in very good standard. Edda summer hotel chain has hotels all over Iceland, some of them are student dorms during the winter and in summer, when the tourist season begins, are back to functioning as the hotel rooms.
Hotels in Reykjavik
In the city of Reykjavik, Iceland's capital and the main city, you will find a number of luxury hotels designed to serve mainly executives, most of them located near major shopping centers. The main part of Reykjavik hotels are located in quiet areas, and offer friendly service in a relaxed atmosphere. Outside Reykjavik, throughout Iceland you will find mostly small, comfortable hotels, usually located on the roadsides.
Farm houses and Farmers Guesthouses
Farm stay is certainly an unusual experience and interesting for many. Icelandic farm stay is an opportunity to get to know the Icelandic authentic lifestyle and interact with locals. Often you will hear interesting stories from the farm owners about their family history and if you wish, you can order the day before Icelandic dinner and get to know Iceland through the traditional cooking as well.
Summer houses (Sumarbústaðir)
When traveling on the roads of Iceland, you will probably notice many small wooden houses scattered along the beautiful and colorful scenery. In most cases those are summer houses that both Icelanders and tourists hire for a weekend or a whole week to get away a bit from the bustle of the city (as it may sound strange when it comes to Icelanders, it is true). Cabins are equipped with a kitchenette, a bathroom and some have luxurious Jacuzzi in the yard.
In Iceland, there are about 70 campsites. You will find them in almost every town and close to most major tourist attractions. Campsites are open from the beginning of June to mid- September. Placing a tent costs a little relatively to the other lodging options. In most campgrounds there are toilets, showers, and even a barbecue equipment.
If there is no toilet, it is always possible to enter the local swimming pool (exists in almost every village) and have a good shower for a price of 600 kronas (Five Euros). Those interested in real Icelandic adventure can also combine camping in tents with hitchhiking.
Price for camping in national parks is $ 8 for adults, 50% discount for pensioners and free for children under 16. The price is a bit lower in the other campsites.
Remember! In Iceland it is forbidden to camp outside the designated areas.
