  • Really a nice church. Best thing is in the cellar. Go inside the church and then to your left. You will see a doorway. Go down the stairs. There is the history of christianity in iceland. The aira outside is also intresting. A tunnel on left side. A turf house on the right side. Dont miss to go inside the church it is beautiful. Skálholt is a good 30 min stop on the Golden Circle.
  • Beautiful church, the biggest Catholic Church in Iceland, also one of the only church that allowing us to enter the church. There is a small turf house beside the church, too bad there's no explanation on the function of this turf house. Interesting part is there is a small tunnel on the side of the church, also no explanation of this tunnel. Beautiful landscape around, worth the detour and spend some time here.
  • The cathedral isn't all that exciting to look at from the outside, but the interior is beautiful. There is also a more traditional structure next door. The views from the cathedral steps are good too.
  • The rooms are a cozy lodge style. Don't expect anything modern. The Wi-Fi is very fast and the view is stunning. There is a lot of moss on the grass and many mountains around. It's a one hour ish drive out from Reykjavik so the surroundings a very quiet and pristine. From my experience, the beds are also very comfy. I give it 3 stars because the building I'm staying km is very far from the main building where meals are served. This is quite inconvenient but if u manage to get a room in the main building, you will be closer to the dining hall. ( the main building doesn't have as good of a view though ) . I hope this has helped you ( ^ω^)
  • There aren 't any intresting places, the church isn 't looks good, the town is really died out.
