A drive from Reykjavík takes only about an hour and from the airport it takes only an additional half hour drive.

Hotel Hekla is operated in a new building which formally opened in 2003 north of the town Selfoss. It is situated on a rural and peaceful southern plain with a sensational mountain view. The name is derived from the famous volcano, Hekla, which is the most prominent mountain to every visitor who stays at the hotel. In ancient times it was superstitiously believed, throughout Europe, that Hekla was really "The Gateway to Hell" for all lost souls. Since 1970 it has frequently erupted.

The cuisine at Hotel Hekla is presented in an international manner , but based on all the best Icelandic ingredients and raw-material. The specialty of the house is a fresh game, Icelandic lamb and a variety of delicious fowls and seabirds such as geese, ducks, puffins, gannets and auks. All raw-material of calves and piglets comes from a special breed which is raised on the milk of their mothers instead of typical animal feed. The result is a much softer and more natural taste of the meat. The southern countryside in Iceland is renowned for its fruitfulness, which means all the trimmings are fresh all year around.
