Welcome to our hostel

Kópasker is a small village in the north-east part of Iceland. Its economy is built around services for the surrounding sheep farms. The hostel is located in the centre of the town with all necessary services close by. Approximately 33km from Kópasker is the village Ásbyrgi which is part of the National Park Jökulsárgljúfur.

In the National Park there are many interesting places like Hljóðaklettur and Forvöð. Dettifoss is the most powerful waterfall in Europe, but there are also smaller waterfalls in Jökulsá, like Hafragilsfoss and Vígabergsfoss.

Many species of interesting birds are found in Melrakkaslétta. Rauðinúpur (which is 30km from Kópasker hostel) and it is an ideal place for bird watchers. The best time of the year to see the birds are in May and September/October. At Snartastaðir there is a very good folk museum. The nearest nostels are Akureyri, 191km and Ytra Lón, 84km.

We were the only ones staying here and Benedict was very friendly and we a lovely converstaion with him. Please make sure it is in a prominent place that this hostel does not accept card!. He was very understanding about our lack of cash and I transferred the money the following day when we finally got to a bank. Shop in the little village doesn't open weekends so you need to be organised.

When we check in, the host told us that there was no hot water in town as the problem was bring fixed. Though the problem did not affect us during our stay, the host proactively gave us a room rate discount. We appreciated his service.
