SOUTH DOOR’S INFORMATION CENTRES ARE LOCATED IN HELLA & SKÓGAR
The staff of Hotel Skógar is familiar with the hiking trails in South Iceland. Especially those that are nearby. Laugavegur, from Landmannalaugar to Thorsmork is, of course, the most popular one. Also, there are hiking trails in Thorsmork that we have helped hikers with, from Thorsmork to Alftavatn and to Fjallabak. One of the most popular hiking trails in the south is also around Hekla Volcano, and we have the trails marked through GPS.
Hotel Skógar has cooperation with the main bus companies that operate in South Iceland, thereby connecting our accommodation to Landmannalaugar, Thorsmork, and Skogafoss. If you stay at our Base Camp Landmannalaugar, you have connections to all the main sights in South Iceland.
One of the most ancient forms of sightseeing in Iceland is on the back of the Icelandic horse. In South Iceland we have many horse rentals that offer the best guided tours. The seasoned guides can take you on some famous tours around the highlands or, if you prefer, around the local area.
Mountain Biking is becoming increasingly popular in Iceland due to the number of great tracks available and their ease of access, for example, biking around Hekla or Fimmvörðuháls.
