Skálholtsskóli – the center for education, culture and dialogue of church and society – welcomes individuals and families as well as larger groups of different kinds for a longer or shorter stay all year round, offering housing accomodation and restaurant service. In the summer Skálholt is a much visited place for tourists of many nationalities, some only looking around for a while or staying for a good meal or a cup of coffee in the restaurant. But Skálholtsskóli is also an ideal place for meetings, conferences and similar events during the winter.
True to its tradition traced back to the Middle ages the school welcomes especially groups and individuals from abroad to engage in dialogue and expand horizons.
Skálholt is 93 km from Reykjavík, very close to Geysir, Gullfoss, Thingvellir and other key tourist attractions.
In the cathedral Sunday worship services and daily morning (laudes) and evening prayers (vesper) are offered as well as weekly concerts in the summer.
We offer excellent facilities for conferences, workshops, retreats and educational and cultural tourism.
Full accommodation is provided for up to 44 people in single and double rooms with and without private bath. An adjacent camp within short walking distance (4-5 min.) can accommodate 33 people in simpler housing at lower rates.
The dining hall can serve 120 people and offers, among other things, traditional Icelandic food made by recipes from the 12th century.
The conference room seats 60-70 people and can be divided into three smaller rooms.
