Sharing the Beauty of the Landscape
Hotel Laki is set in one of Iceland’s most scenic spots
Hotel Laki is run by a family who have been living in Efri-Vík since 1968. At first, they were traditional farmers but since 1973, the family has also been involved with the travel services and started building Hotel Laki in 2005 beside their old home. Today there are 64 rooms available in different categories and 15 summer cottages.
It has been transformed into a clean and modern Scandinavian-style hotel but its design is aimed to make the most of the abundant Icelandic summer light. It has very large vertical and panoramic windows which flood the spacious dining and recreation areas with natural light. On the horizon, the gargantuan Vatnajökull Glacier dominates the landscape.
The Magical Northern Lights
You will find a warm welcome at Hotel Laki to experience the magic of the nature in the countryside, the bright summer nights or the darkness of the winter with the Northern Lights. They strive to fulfill all your needs and exceed your expectations by offering you simply the best possible service in the most amazing surroundings. There is 24-hour room service and free WiFi in all the rooms. The hotel now boasts a glass pavilion on the roof of the second wing, which provides a perfect opportunity to observe the marvellous Northern Lights whilst enjoying a hot cup of cocoa, sheltered from wind and light pollution. Photographers can step out onto a large balcony to capture the phenomena.
They’re located close to many of Iceland’s best known natural gems and are more than happy to assist you in planning your stay.
