Hótel Gígur

Hotel in Southern Mývatn

Gígur's stylish contemporary look doesn't hide the fact that rooms are small, even by Icelandic standards. To compensate, there's friendly service, a prime lakeside location in Skútustaðir and ace views. Easily the hotel's best feature is its superb restaurant, one of the area's best. Regional fare includes perfect pan-fried trout and grilled lamb fillet (mains 2800kr to 5500kr); finish with rhubarb crumble and blueberry ice cream.
