Lake Mývatn is known for being an area of extremes.
With lush green grass, rough lava formations, steaming earth, colourful mud pots and still blue water, the lake is considered to be one of Iceland's most beautiful destinations.
Hotel Gígur stands at Skútustaðir, on the southern shore of Lake Mývatn, with fantastic view of the lake and the unique pseudo craters. Surrounded by famous destinations, all within an hour drive, the hotel is a great starting point for short walks and longer day tours in this magnificent landscape.

  • Warm, friendly, great service, terrific views
    We were six ladies on Week tour of Iceland. We stayed three nights at Hotel Gigur. For two nights we were the only guests. We felt like family. All our meals were included and they were excellent. The Chef and servers went out of there way to provide wonderful meals. Don't know about the other hotels in this area, they all seemed to be closed
