Hotel Ork

Type: Hotel

Grade: Standard

Introduction

Found 45km east of Reykjavik in the 'greenhouse village' of Hveragerdi, this hotel offers 85 spacious, en suite rooms. Renowned for its geothermal springs and the greenhouses which are heated by the volcanic waters, the area is peppered with geysers, numerous hot springs and steaming fumaroles.

For those interested in exploring further afield, the village is well-placed near the small port from which you can head out to the Westman Islands, while sitting near enough the country's capital and the myriad of highlights in the south-west to explore those as well. Sitting in a hotbed for Icelandic horticulture, the hotel's restaurant thrives with the availability of local produce, creating traditional Icelandic dishes in comfortable and relaxed surroundings.

Holidays at Hotel Ork

A large swimming pool with waterslide is available to enjoy in the summer months, and the staff is happy to help arrange hiking and horseback riding excursions into the nearby Hengill volcanic area. Each room has a private bathroom with both a shower and bathtub, as well as a mini-bar and TV.
