Around the hostel
Join the HI Community
At HI, we want everybody to be able to enjoy the real hostelling experience: more than a place to stay, this is about opening minds, meeting new people, cultural immersion and getting travellers involved in our global activities. We love travelling as much as you do, so we have high hostel standards wherever we expand on the planet, but more than where you rest your head, this is about taking something unforgettable away with you – wherever you come from, or are going next.

Horse Riding - Lava Tour
Riding an Icelandic horse is something you have to experience at least once in your life. From the riding centre in Hafnarfjörður you can enjoy the friendly horses on excellent riding paths. Ride through lava fields and along beautiful green hillsides. Look for different rock formations in the lava while experiencing the special gait, tölt. This tour is ideal for beginners as well as for more experienced riders.
Contribute to protect Iceland´s nature!
Iceland’s unique nature is the country’s main tourist attraction, yet there are major environmental concerns facing many of these iconic landscapes. HI Iceland is offering its guests the chance to support conservation efforts run by Landvernd, Iceland’s leading non-for profit environmental organisation. Please consider donating to help protect this inspiring part of the world. Read more at www.hostel.is and www.hostel.is/Sustainability/
