At almost 300 miles from Reykjavik, Höfn is in a bleakly beautiful part of Iceland with a tiny population. If you're driving along Route 1 therefore, the town itself comes as a bit of a surprise. At around 2,000 people, it's small but also quite lively, particularly in summer.

Höfn's proximity to natural attractions such as Jökulsárlón and Vatnajökull National Park makes it a convenient stop-off and it also has its own (tiny) airport. The fishing industry means you can expect lots of fresh seafood in the town's restaurants and there are also a few decent hotels and guesthouses.

View of the glacier from ring road 1 (the main highway). It is picturesque from every angle.

Hofn is a peacefll town in the south-east of Iceland.
Its location is unique...close to the world biggest glacier (not considering the pooles).
I've spent one night in a pretty hotel named Hofn (http://www.rikivatnajokuls.is/hotelhofn/english).
The Hotel has a breathtaking view on the Vatnajökull glacier.
