Beautiful one-hour flight from Reykjavik; have your camera ready if the weather is clear.
Vatnajokull Travel put together a group of eight English-speaking guests for our stay, and provided convenient airport shuttle. "Brando"Johannsson drove us around in a van to the local highlights (glacier, iceberg-filled bay, waterfalls, northern lights, national park, coastal cliffs, horse ranch), providing running commentaries and patiently answering our endless questions. Local photographer "Ronni"Hauksson helped us capture the northern lights, and generously linked us to his amazing pictures.
The town of Hofn is sleepy in the off-season, but the hotel restaurant was excellent and the breakfast buffet was convenient. Our comfortable rooms in the detached building were largely protected from the one noisy party in the banquet room; otherwise quiet with beautiful views of the glacier. Highly recommended.
