Pirates in Patreksfjörður
Pirates welcome at the Pirate House: Travellers at Hótel Ráðagerði
Down by the shore, an old workshop has been taken over by pirates, teaching children the pirates’ life. Making knots, navigating by the stars, choosing a sailing route and what to eat, it’s a pirate school for all the family
where children learn useful nautical training, all dressed up to take their place in the crew. What would a pirate hall be without food and drink?—Only in this case, it is good food and drink—not the typical pirate’s fare, eaten at long wooden tables. It’s just getting started—but ye landlubbers watch out; thar’ll be pirates about!
A Travellers’ Haven
Safe from those pirates, on the hillside with a beautiful view of the bay, Hotel Ráðagerði has just re-opened after extensive renovation. The 8 rooms, including 2 family rooms that can take 4 guests each, are all beautiful, with wi-fi throughout. The linen has been specially made by Icelandic designer, Linda Björg Árnadóttir, and can be purchased at the hotel.
Whale watching without the boat
The large windows look out onto the fjord where, in recent years whales have often been seen jumping clear out of the water and swimming close to shore. Open all year, this is a beautiful hotel to base from when exploring Látrabjarg or the beaches at Rauðisandur.Sjóræningjahúsið
