Meet Asta, our front desk clerk at Center Hotels Arnarhvoll.

Here are her favorite places to visit in Iceland.

My favorite place to visit in Iceland is the Glacier lagoon. Located in the south east of the country you'll see these spectacular icebergs rise in a lagoon and the sunsets there are amazing.

Another incredible sight is Skógarfoss waterfall located along the south coast of Iceland. The waterfall is very picturesque especially on a sunny day when you can see a single or double rainbow.

We fought for our right to party!
Beer was illegal in Iceland for most of the 20th Century and the prohibition finally ended on March 1, 1989. This is why Icelanders celebrate Beer Day on March 1st. (We had to fought for our right to party!)
Quirky winter traditions
Want to learn about some quirky and delicious Icelandic winter traditions held in February like Bun Day, Blast Day and Ash Wednesday?
Turf houses
Have you ever wonder how an isolated community, living in harsh conditions, without an easy access to metal goods would build their homes?
Aurora Borealis in all it's glory
We're thrilled that the Northern Lights season is back as we can't get enough of these mystic yet beautiful lights dancing in the sky.
Imagine Piece Tower
In 1967 John Lennon asked Yoko Ono to create a piece tower for him in their backyard. She apparently never got to it back then, however 40 years later she did, just not in her backyard, but in Reykjavík Iceland.
