Perched on the edge of the rambling River Varma sits the charming Frost & Fire boutique hotel. Located in the small town of Hveragerdi, it’s all about the great outdoors here, with excellent hikes, hot springs and some rather inviting geothermally heated hot tubs on the riverbank.
There are few better spots to kick back and relax in after a busy day exploring the Golden Circle – particularly if the Northern Lights decide to make an appearance.
The hotel’s Varma restaurant is a must-try during your stay, serving delicious Icelandic dishes which are prepared using produce from Hveragerdi’s own geothermal greenhouses. Geothermal energy is even used to power the ovens!
Breakfast is a rather exciting affair; boil your own eggs in the geothermal spring and tuck into an array of delicious dishes. Breakfast is included in most room rates (see detail below).
Each of the 22 rooms has been tastefully decorated in a modern style, with comfortable beds and a collection of prints from local Icelandic artists. While they can come up a little on the small side, their cosy atmosphere is perfect to unwind in after a busy day.
Delve into the outdoor swimming pool or admire the sweeping views from the comfort of two geothermally heated outdoor hot tubs. You can expect baths aplenty here; with mud baths and Kneipp baths providing a relaxing finish to a day on your feet. You can even take a dip in the lake, which is warmed by the nearby hot springs.
How to get there
