Type: Hotel

Grade: Standard


A small hotel located deep in rural Iceland, the comfortable and airy Hotel Leirubakki provides 36 rooms housed with the Hekla Centre itself. With its focus placed on the neighbouring Mount Hekla volcanic area, many of the hotelís rooms look over this remarkable natural sight itself.

Other activities on offer include horseback riding, fishing in Lake Ytri-Rangá, and daily bus tours to the highlands of Landmannalaugar (summer only). Offering free access to a sauna and geothermal hut tubs, the hotel is styled in modern wood that highlights the remarkable views available of the volcano. Trout and lamb make up some of the traditional Iceland cuisine that is served in the in-house restaurant and, when the weather is good, guests can enjoy their meals on the hotel's terrace. A first-class restaurant that is run by chefs who have earned excellent reputations in Iceland, many of the ingredients that appear on your plate will be locally sourced, providing a genuine Icelandic flavour.

The hotel has both en suite and shared rooms, as well as family rooms for those travelling with their little ones.
