Hotel Leirubakki

Posted By : TusoDikens/ 880

Leirubakki is an old manor farm in South Iceland, only 100 kilometres from Iceland’s capital, Reykjavík. Today the farm boasts a new hotel and an outstanding restaurant, in addition to facilities for meetings and conferences.  It is also an information centre for tourists and hosts the Hekla Centre, where one can enjoy an innovative and stylish exhibition on Iceland’s most famous and active volcano, Hekla.

Hekla is a massive, lofty mountain, 1,491 metres high, towering over the district to which Leirubakki belongs.

Leirubakki also has a camping ground and horse rentals, arranging horseback-riding trips lasting from one hour up to many days.  It is possible to purchase fishing permits at Leirubakki: the farm is located on the Ytri Rangá river, one of the main salmon rivers in Iceland, where over 14,000 salmon are caught each summer.

A wide variety of other services are available for purchase at Leirubakki, and the staff of Hotel Leirubakki can readily make additional arrangements depending on the needs and wishes of one and all.
