Höfn Overview

Located on the south eastern coast of Iceland, Höfn is a little fishing village. The little town is home to the base of the Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Iceland, and commands excellent views of the same. The Vatnajökull National Park is located in this area as well, making it one of the most popular tourist places in Iceland. The town is riddled with a number of stunning waterfalls and hot springs offering some splendid sights. The overabundance of lobsters in the waters of Höfn have led the town to be called the ‘Lobster Capital of Iceland’- in fact, Höfn also hosts an annual lobster festival in summer!
