Icelandair Hotel Vik is home to 78 sleek and comfortable rooms, with an attractive modern style and neutral, organic colour schemes to complement the landscapes outside – enjoy the views over the mountains and the ocean through huge, floor-to-ceiling windows. The rooms in the hotel’s main building were designed by the Icelandic architect Gudbjorg Magnusdottir, and were inspired by the nearby beach and ocean.
