Eyrarbakki HI Hostel

Take time off from the busy ring road and take in the breeze of the Atlantic ocean while immersing yourself in Icelandic culture and history. The coastal village of Eyrarbakki offers a quiet retreat while remaining conveniently close to some of the best spots Iceland has to offer- enjoy hiking routes or horseback riding on the black beaches, kayaking in the lagoons or expeditions into a lava tube cave system. Eyrarbakki is perfect for solo travellers or groups, with modern fittings and a large kitchen- perfect for a big meal at the end of a long day.
