About the hotel
Our hotel acquired the name of its village – Kirkjubæjarklaustur, or “Klaustur” as it is usually referred to by locals, a small village located on the famous Ring Road between the two of Iceland’s most famous glaciers, Vatnajökull and Mýrdalsjökull. Several tourist attractions are situated near the town, including Vatnajökull National Park, the canyon Fjaðrárgljúfur, the Laki craters, the Church floor, the Dwarf Rocks and the Glacier Lagoon. Furthermore, while driving to Klaustur, you can enjoy scenic views of waterfalls such as Seljalandsfoss and Skógarfoss and the black beach Reynisfjara.
To learn more about these attractions, please view section “Attractions” here on our website. At that time the sea level was higher, and so waves are thought to have caused the peculiar look of the rocks. According to Icelandic folklore, the cliffs are home to both dwarves and elves, resulting in the site’s name. Today Dverghamrar are a protected national monument and they are located only about 10 kilometers from our hotel.
