The famous “Kirkjugólf” (church floor) is just west of the river. There you can see incredible forms of columnar basalt stone slabs, a wonder of nature´s endless possibilities. According to the late geologist Sigurður Þórarinsson the slabs are from 1065. The church floor was preserved in 1987 as one of Icelandic nature´s wonders. Nearby is Kirkjubæjarklaustur, a nun monastery from 1186-1550. Many historic places and names are a reminder of the monastery, e.g. Systrastapi, Stjórnarfoss, Fjarðárgljúfur and Systrafoss.

It takes only 50 minutes to drive to Skaftafell National Park and one and a half hours to glacier lagoon Jökulsárlón.

What to see close-by:


Lava field from the so-called Skaftá Fires or Laki eruption, which began in 1783 and lasted until 1784. 


A bizarre expanse of columnar basalt, eroded and shaped by wind and waves. Close to road 203 - you will pass it on your way to us.

Dverghamrar (12 km)

Strange formations of columnar basalt, formed by waves when the sea level was higher than today.


A steep-sided rocky hill west of Klaustur. Folklore says that two nuns were buried up on the rock after being burned at the stake for breaking their vows.


Systrafoss is a waterfall of Fossá River that arises from Systravatn. It is possible to hike there. You can start either at the waterfall or close to Kirkjugólf. Upon the mountain, the path is marked. Langisjór3


An old turf farmhouse together with an ancient chapel - one of the very few turf churches remaining in Iceland.

There are several sights in the area perfect for photo opportunities. Here are a few that we can recommend:

Stjórnarfoss is a scenic waterfall and a true hidden gem known only to the locals. Find the cascade on your way to Adventure Hotel Geirland, not far from road 203. 

Skaftáreldahraun is a huge lava field from Laki eruption, which is believed to be one of the greatest lava flows in history. The lava field is just 5 minutes away from the hotel.

Kirkjugólf is an odd expanse of columnar basalt that once was mistaken for an old church floor. The site is located on the way to our hotel, close to road 203. 

Dverghamrar (Dwarf Rocks), located 13 minutes away from the hotel, are a protected natural monument and one of the most remarkable rock formations in Iceland. 

Systrastapi Rock is a photogenic steep rocky hill located just 11 minutes from the hotel.

Systrafoss Waterfall, located 7 minutes away from Hotel Geirland, is a beautiful double cascade. Nearby you’ll find a few short hikes in the gorgeous forested area where Iceland’s tallest trees grow.
