The Highland Center Hrauneyjar (Hálendismiðstöðin) is situated at the edge of the country’s most impressive and active volcanic area, surprisingly enough only 150 km from Reykjavik. The Center is both easy to find and travel to - there is an excellent paved road providing all year round access for every kind of vehicle.
The Highland Center Hrauneyjar (Hálendismiðstöðin) is situated at the edge of the country’s most impressive and active volcanic area. Surprisingly enough only 150 km from Reykjavik and with an excellent paved road providing all year-access in any kind of vehicle, we are easy to reach and find.
From here it is a short distance to many of the most beautiful and popular tourist attractions in the highlands - including Landmannalaugar, Thjorsadalur, Mount Hekla, Sprengisandur, Veidivötn and Fjallabak. The vastness and lack of human impact on the surrounding area makes it truly one of the last places in Europe where freedom, natural beauty and solitude are combined in a breathtakingly powerful experience. The hotel is well accessible by paved road all year round and is only 150 km from Reykjavik.
The guesthouse has a well-known restaurant with heartwarming food serving up to 180 guests. We also have a gas station, an information center, a fishing center, service facilities, a TV room, and a shop selling an assortment of goods and food articles. We also provide daily weather and road reports for travelers venturing into the Highlands and many times act as a center for excursions heading there.
We offer both made up beds and sleeping bag accommodation at the Highland Center:
