Business Destinations explores Iceland’s stunning hotels and how they help maintain the country’s tourism boom

April 3, 2018 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

Iceland may not be a particularly large country but it certainly punches above its weight in terms of tourism. Despite boasting a population of just over 300,000, it welcomed more than 2 million foreign visitors last year, which represents a fourfold increase since 2010. And as the tourism industry has flourished, the hospitality sector has followed close behind.

Those travelling to Iceland to catch a glimpse of towering volcanoes, deep geothermal pools or the Aurora Borealis will find that the country has a host of luxurious hotels vying for their attention too. The Grand Hotel Reykjavík, part of the Íslandshótel group, offers 311 rooms, 11 meeting and conference halls and a location that is difficult to beat. Just a few minutes’ walk from the oceanfront and yet easily accessible from Reykjavík’s financial quarter, it’s a hotel that is both peaceful and practical for business travellers.

The hotel’s conference rooms are named after places that appear in Norse mythology and the references to Icelandic culture continue in the Grand Restaurant, where ingredients such as arctic char and fillet of foal show off the best of Nordic cuisine. The Reykjavík Spa, located on the ground floor, includes a sauna, hot tubs and a comprehensive range of treatments to melt away any work-related stress.

Húsavík, just a few hours north-east of Iceland’s capital city, sits on the edge of Skjálfandi Bay and is fast gaining recognition as one of the best locations in the world for whale-watching. Whether you intend to see some awe-inspiring marine life, marvel at the nearby Dettifoss waterfall or explore the Ásbyrgi canyon, the Fosshotel Húsavík has everything you’ll need to recharge the batteries after a long day admiring the area’s natural wonders.
