Surrounded by mountains and metres away from the seashore is Vagnsstaðir hostel, Iceland. Try to spot seals frolicking in the ocean or the tip of a whale’s tail disappearing beneath the waves. Just steps from the accommodation you’ll find hiking trails which lead you into the stunning wilderness. Take a jeep or snowmobile tour to the mighty Vatnajökull – Europe’s biggest glacier which covers around 8% of the surface of Iceland. Go on a glacier walk and set foot on the ice in a group, seeing the cauldrons, crevices, and ridges up close. Venture further into Vatnajökull National Park and hike up to the peak of Kristínartindar for awe-inspiring views over the arresting landscape. Take a trip to Jolulsarlon Lagoon, the deepest Lake in Iceland and a hauntingly beautiful sight. On a dark night, you might see the incredible natural phenomenon, the Northern Lights, streaking across the sky.
