IGS 2015 Höfn in Hornafjörður

Because of limited resources in the area we have reserved accommodation at several locations in the Hornafjörður area for symposium delegates. 

A block of 40 rooms has been reserved from 21 to 27 June at the symposium venue at Hotel Vatnajökull at Lindarbakki, several more rooms at Hotel Jökull, midway between Lindarbakki and Höfn, as well as 11 four-person cabins at the camp site in Höfn (see location map). Camping places are also available at the camp site for those who want to stay there in tents (no reservations needed).

A minibus service between the symposium venue and the various accommodation sites will be organized. 

Accommodation in the block-reserved rooms is reserved and paid for through the IGS symposium website at the same time as registering for the symposium (see the registration page). Those who wish can choose to stay in double rooms with a roommate assigned at the registration on 21 June. Roommates for those who stay in the four-person cabins at the camp site at Höfn will also be assigned at the time of the registration.

Participants in the pre-symposium snow scooter excursion on Sunday afternoon arriving in Hornafjörður on Saturday 20 June can reserve a room for Saturday night through the IGS website or arrange their own accommodation at their choice. Please not that this room on Saturday to Sunday is a separate booking item on the IGS-web.

The reserved accommodation and the main conference room will take up to maximum of 130 participants, so please book early in order that the organizers can best manage the event. Registration will be closed when the number of registered participants reaches the maximum even if this happens before the registration deadline. Participants that have preregistered their interest in the symposium on the IGS web have precedence over others.

There is some information about accommodation in Reykjavík  and Keflavík on the travel information web page.
