Magazine We have opened Icelandair Hotel Myvatn

We have opened Icelandair Hotel Myvatn, a new 59-room hotel, restored on a solid foundation.

Myvatn is undoubtedly one of the best-known tourist destinations in Iceland and indeed a phenomenal place. Unparalleled nature has charmed tourists, naturalists, and scientists alike.

We embrace a long-standing tradition of hospitality and look forward to maintaining that tradition by hosting tourists who make their way to Myvatn and vicinity, offering variety in food and drink and exceptional service. Guests and locals alike can enjoy a meal at Mylla Restaurant, located at the hotel and experience an authentic Icelandic tavern, Gamli bærinn, a stone's throw from our hotel, also run by us.

"It is incredibly exciting to get the opportunity to enhance tourism in the countryside further and to support the development of tourism in Iceland with increased quality of hotel accommodation and food and beverage services. We are in partnership with the people of Myvatn and look forward to further cooperation in developing the area for domestic and foreign travelers, "says Magnea Thorey Hjalmarsdottir, Managing Director of Icelandair Hotels.

The hotel's architect is Bjorgvin Snaebjornsson at the architecture office Apparat. The focus is on simple, fun and curious things and different spaces with a relaxed atmosphere where you will enjoy kicking back and relaxing after a day of exploring.

We are particularly proud of our environmental policy and have taken it a step further in partnership with Skutustadir borough as participants in the restructuring plan for sanitation in the area. This project recently received formal recognition for Innovation in public services and administration. The project aims to protect Myvatn's ecosystem and support soil reclamation at Holasandur in collaboration with The Soil Conservation Service of Iceland, Landgraedslan.

Icelandair Hotel is a leading chain of quality hotels, consisting of a total of nine hotels throughout the year. Other hotel chains include Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Natura, Reykjavik Marina, Hamar, Akureyri, Myvatn, Herad, Vik and Fludir.
