Accommodations on the Esoteric Quest 2016

 

We have rooms reserved at the hotels featured below. We will all spend the first night of the main conference in the city of Selfoss, about 45 minutes outside of Reykjavik. Our remaining four nights will be spent on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula in the town of Hellnar.

In Hellnar, hotel rooms will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, and you will be asked to provide first, second and third choices. Our registration director, Andrea Lomanto, will confirm your reservation. Please note that accommodations for the Post-Conference Journeys into the Westfjords, or In and Around Reykjavik, are listed within each itinerary.

Most of our group will be staying at the Hotel Hellnar during the main conference, where standard, ocean view, and upgraded rooms are provided (some with limited availability).  We also will have a limited number of budget accommodations in shared houses in town, and in the nearby village of Arnarstapi.

However, the Snjofell is cozy and inviting, with an on-site bar, rooftop terrace, and lovely common area.
