Hotel Valaskjalf

Located in a quiet spot in the heart of Egilsstadir, this newly refurbished hotel has contemporary-themed rooms with wooden floors, stylish furnishings and wall-mounted flat-screen TVs. A wide range of accommodation is available, from singles and twins to doubles and triples – all with private bathrooms.

The only restaurant in East Iceland to be reviewed in the prestigious Nordic White Guide, Hotel Valaskjalf’s Glod Restaurant is renowned for its ambitious menu featuring exciting seafood dishes, such as cod ceviche with fresh ginger, chilli peppers, red onions and coriander.

Hotel Valaskjalf makes an ideal base for exploring the East Fjords – a 30-minute drive takes you over a spectacular mountain pass to reach Seydisfjordur with its vibrant cultural scene and magnificent scenery. Nearer to Egilsstadir itself, the lakeside birch woodland of Hallormsstadur offers a range of adventure activities, from hiking and cycling to horse riding and 4×4 ATV tours.
