Hotel 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 m. high, towering over the district to which Leirubakki belongs.
Hotel Leirubakki also has a camping ground and a horse rental, 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.
Camping site is open from May until the end of September.
