I spent 3 days at Skalakot during a solo vacation to Iceland and could not have made a better choice. The warm hospitality, immaculate accommodations, outrageously delicious food, and scope of onsite activities helped turned my vacation into the adventure of a lifetime. During my stay I hiked the breathtaking canyon behind the hotel, rode horseback across the black sand beach with the help of one of Skalaot's sweet, patient, and thoroughly professional guides, and dined nightly on world-class fare prepared from farm-grown ingredients. The breakfast is worth mentioning as well - fresh baked goods, farm eggs made to order, juice, coffee, and fruit. The hotel, a destination in its own right, also served as a perfect base from which to explore all that the South Coast has to offer. The famous waterfalls, black beaches of Vik, and many other sites are a short drive from Skalakot. My single room was tastefully decorated and very, very comfortable. I slept like a baby every night, and every morning walked out onto the balcony to take in a gorgeous view of the mountainside onto which the property is situated. The bathroom was appointed with high end toiletries, fluffy towels and a comfy robe. The shower was amazing - great pressure and plenty of hot water. Just what I needed after long days of hiking, riding, and exploring. It was a fairytale of a vacation. Can't recommend Skalakot enough. I'll never forget my time there and can't wait to go back!
