Surrounded by beaches and sprawling seascapes, Hofn is a picturesque fishing town located on a peninsula in the southeast of Iceland. Visitors flock here to experience the spectacular Vatnajokull Glacier, the largest glacier in Europe, and to spot local seals resting on its bergs.
If you’re a lover of local wildlife don't forget to head to the Skaftafell nature reserve, a popular spot for pink-footed geese and reindeer, while Diamond Beach and Vestrahorn Mountain are favourites amongst nature photographers. In the summer months the town hosts the lobster festival where you can indulge in the catch of the day and experience authentic Icelandic culture. This beautiful town also boasts a wealth of culture and museums showcasing a variety of displays on the history of the glacier, as well as local geology and ecology.
