Hofn is a lively fishing town on the southeastern coast of Iceland. Named after the local word for harbor, Hofn is a popular starting point for tours to view the nearby Hornafjörður fjord as well as Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Europe. Other natural attractions that you can access from Hofn are the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, the Diamond Beach and Vestrahorn Mountain. The town itself has much to offer, ranging from natural history museums and art galleries displaying local handicrafts to historic buildings like the Gamlabúð and even an old movie set that has been preserved for its depiction of ancient Icelandic life. After all that sightseeing, you can unwind with a swim in a heated, Scandinavian style poo. Local restaurants offer the hearty flavors of Nordic seafood, particularly lobsters, as the town even boasts of its own Lobster Festival every July.
