Lonely Planet (UK) - - Eastern Iceland -

Overlooking a prime sec­tion of Vat­na­jökull Na­tional Park, Hó­tel Skaftafell com­bines plenty of home com­forts with IMAX-sized views of sky­line-hog­ging glaciers. There are few dining op­tions in this part of the coun­try, but the in-house restau­rant is one of the east coast’s best, us­ing lo­cal in­gre­di­ents like lightly-salted Ice­landic cod (from £140; ho­tel­skaftafell.is). Ice­landic Moun­tain Guides of­fers com­bined glacier walks and in­tro­duc­tions to ice climb­ing at its base camp at Vat­na­jökull Na­tional Park (from £145 in­clud­ing equip­ment; moun­tain­guides.is).
