About Us

Stracta Apartments consists of 28 self-catering apartment units in the beautiful Orustustaðir area of South-East Iceland.

The apartments are the first phase of what will be a modern and eco-friendly hotel, the third Stracta Hotel in Iceland.

The hotels are owned and operated by entrepreneur and master builder Hreiðar Hermannsson.

At the heart of our ethos lies a commitment to sustainability. Each apartment is crafted from repurposed house units sourced from Hungary’s ATCO company, previously utilized in Icelandic construction projects. Throughout construction, we prioritized recycling while upholding stringent quality and service standards.

Our dedication to environmental stewardship extends to every facet of design. Locally sourced materials, including concrete extracted onsite, now adorn the landscape, transforming former mining areas into scenic ponds and recreational spaces. Innovative energy-efficient solutions, such as our air circulation system and heat exchange technology, ensure optimal resource utilization.

At Stracta, we’re forging a path towards a greener, more sustainable future. Join us in our journey towards responsible hospitality and conservation.

The Area

Orustustaðir is known for being one of the youngest areas of Iceland, with a short history of residence 1823 – 1953.

Stracta Apartments are located on a 3,000 hectares (7,400 acres) plot of land, 10% of which is currently under forestation.

The land stretches from the famous Orustuhóll (Battlehill) by Route 1 (The Ring Road) and leads down through the areas of Brunahraun (Burn lava) and Brunasand (Burn sand) all the way down to the sea.

Orustuhóll is the main landmark in the area.

Not everyone agrees on the story behind the naming of Orustuhóll. Some say that the settlers Þorkell Alviðrukappi and Hróar Tungugoði fought at Orrustuhóll, which explains the name. But others tell and believe a story about a great battle between the hidden people (elves in Icelandic folklore), who fought at the hill before the Laki volcanic eruption of 1783.

Discover the rich tapestry of Orustustaðir’s history and natural beauty during your stay at Stracta Apartments.
