Discover the comforts of home in a breathtaking natural setting. The modern rustic charm of Hotel Katla offers a warm and convenient welcome to the black beaches and glacial wonders of south Iceland.
The perfect base
The South Coast truly is an array of natural wonders, all just a few hours’ drive from Reykjavik. Waterfalls, black sand beaches, mountains, glaciers and glacial lagoons are among the incredible experiences to be had. The only problem is knowing where to start. Hotel Katla is the perfect base from which to explore all this and more, offering a warm hub in the heart of nature.
The South Coast
The image of white waves crashing on black sand is one of the most distinctive features of Iceland’s incredible landscape. Reynisfjara beach, just a few kilometers from Hotel Katla, is the most famous of all – a stunning visual highpoint in this breathtaking area. The black sand’s bleak beauty is the result of unique volcanic activity, while just off the coast columns of basalt rock, once said to be trolls who have turned to stone, stand watch over the shore.
Nature all around
Icelandic nature is famous for its dramatic, and at times dangerous, beauty. Volcanic forces express themselves in breathtaking ways in this part of the country. From Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon, and the power of Skógafoss waterfall, to the magnificence of the Mýrdalsjökull glacier, it all lies within easy reach of Hotel Katla’s cosy hospitality. And the hotel’s outdoor geothermal hot tub is the perfect place to truly relax into this incredible landscape.
