Nupar Fosshotel is literally situated in the middle of nowhere. The outside of the hotel doesn’t look like much (the building resembles some containers thrown together), but the rooms on the inside are nice. It is rather special staying in the middle of lava fields with a view on the glacier. From your room you can step outside into the wilderness. We visited Jokusarlon from this hotel, but be warned, it is quite a ride from the hotel to Jokusarlon (90km).
We had dinner in Nupar Fosshotel twice. The buffet was really nice. Especially enjoyed the arctic char. Loved the roasted vegetables also. Dessert wasn’t much, but I didn’t need one anyway, because of all the other really nice food. The first day of our stay the breakfast buffer was very well attended by the staff, second day, staff seemed not to notice that there where people waiting for a clean table and the buffet wasn’t filled up fast enough.
When we stayed in the hotel they had recently made sure you could use the wifi in the rooms. Worked very well, so we were happy about that.
