Ninety minutes from Reykjavik and a world away from the bustling capital, Hotel Husafell is a display of architectural rigour nestled between a lava field and a glacier. An angular exterior exudes minimalist charm while an interior of unparalleled comfort makes a lasting impression through tonal décor set against crisp white sheets and the multicoloured, ever-shifting Icelandic terrain.
A member of National Geographic’s Unique Lodges of the World, the hotel expands its prestige through guided hikes and a suite of pools that are naturally powered by hot springs. Noted for its mild weather patterns, the Husafell region is home to diverse topography and wildlife—elements that are reflected in thoughtful detail throughout each room; seating is upholstered with sheep wool, stone-panelled bathrooms reimagine the spectral intricacies of basalt, and distinct, sharply rendered furniture focuses on achieving tranquillity of mind and ambience.
An on-site restaurant elevates seasonal ingredients within unique dishes noted for their creative fusion of Icelandic and international cuisine—salmon ceviche, cured sheep, and baked beetroot grace the menu for an experience at once familiar and profound.
