    Home away from home in Skaftafell

    The Potato Storage is the perfect launchpad if you are intending to do the Skaftafell Glacier Hike, being only a 10-minute drive from most tours' meeting point at Skaftafell Terminal. Regina welcomed us upon arrival into our clean and comfortable studio, which had literally everything one could ask for in terms of warm showers and a fully-fitted kitchenette to prepare meals. Do note that there are no nearby supermarkets - but even if you were not aware, Regina would have given you a heads-up well in advance. We were extremely grateful for the warm hospitality at The Potato Storage and will strongly recommend it to any travelers along the South Coast.

    Potato storage. -Studio apartment layout. 😐 -No washing machine😐 -Early email with directions and very helpful notes about lack of local stores and petrol station 😀 -Greeted on arrival and shown apartment. 😀 -would definitely stay again. 🙂 The accommodation has a lovely rustic feel to it. It is small but functional with a kitchette and extractor fan for when you cook. There are sufficient utensils to cook basic meals with a lovely selection of tea and coffee. The bathroom is very nice as is the decor of the whole apartment. This is definitely a place for couples or a single traveller. Generally this is a very lovely place to stay which has the necessary comforts done to a very high level of quality. I highly recommend this place.

    This was a very unique place to stay (in a former potato storage facility) we were pleasantly surprised at how well appointed the kitchen was and allowed us to cook dinner on our two nights there. This was very close to Vatnajokull National Park where we went on a glacier hike and ice cave trip. Definitely plan on bringing food and snacks, this location is not close to many places for food. Great hiking at the national park and close to Diamond beach!

    오로라를 본 따뜻한 숙소

    아이슬란드에서 머무리는 동안 최고의 숙박이였어요 오로라를 봤거든요 그리고 무엇보다 따뜻한 느낌의 숙소라 너무 좋았어요
