This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Hvolsvöllur.

Hvolsvöllur, Iceland, is approximately a hundred kilometers from Reykjavik on the southern coast of Iceland. It is a halfway town between the attractions of the Golden Circle and the next major town of Vik. There is not a great deal to do here, but if you are needing to stop off for the night after a busy day on the Circle, they do have all of the major amenities here that you will need to stock up on things for your travels. The town also has a heated swimming pool at a fairly decent cost if you are keen on hitting up the geothermal pools like the locals and not paying massive prices like in the Blue Lagoon.

The only major attraction in the town of Hvolsvöllur is the Saga Centre, which gives a broad history on the Vikings and Icelandic culture. It covers a lot of the quests across oceans and one of the most famous sagas, Njall's Saga, which is quite a popular book in many of the souvenir shops for tourists to read. Oddly, there is also a small exhibit on commerce and a few other non-saga-related histories of Iceland.

Your options for a hostel in Hvolsvöllur, Iceland, will locate you quite a way out of the town center off the Highway One along the north side of the river. If staying in a Hvolsvöllur, Iceland hostel, you will need a car to get here. While out this way, you should also consider a trip to Vestmannaeyjar, or the Westman Islands. This place is amazing and has a rich history of recent volcanic eruptions and activity. The ferry is cheap and you can take a day trip and leave your car in the parking lot if you don't want to take it with you. In the westerly direction, you will be hitting the glory of the Golden Circle and all of its attractions, and heading east you will find Vik and a lot of the stunning glaciers and national parks that Iceland has to offer.
