Welcome to Hunkubakkar Guesthouse

Tourist facilities have been available at Hunkubakkar in South of Iceland since 1974. Pálmi Hreinn Harðarson is the present owner and alongside the guesthouse, he runs a thriving sheep farm.

Hunkubakkar is a family run guesthouse, situated by road 206, about 6 km west from Kirkjubæjarklaustur in South Iceland. It is the ideal accommodation for those who wants to explore the South of Iceland as many of the major attractions such as Fjarðárgljúfur, Lakagígar Craters, Skaftafell National Park and Jökulsárlón (the Glacier lagoon) are within a relatively short driving distance. 

We offer accommodation in small, bright and comfortable, two-roomed chalets. There are also three bedrooms with shared bathroom facilities in the main farmhouse.

You will find a gourmet restaurant on site, with seating for up to 50 people, where breakfast and evening meals are served. We offer variety of mouth watering dishes and take pride in using only top quality ingredients from our local surrounding. Enjoy great cuisine and service before you take on the many adventures that awaits you on your road trip around Iceland.

Pálmi invites you to visit Hunkubakkar, where you are assured of a very warm welcome.

AMAZING! I would recommend anyone who needs to stay in the area to book a room at this great place. You will want to stay forever!"
