  • Well-equipped campsite in a gorgeous location! Right by the water with Sn√¶fellsj√∂kull visible in the distance. Cooking space protected from the wind, plenty of sinks, heated WC and free showers. Washer/dryer available for extra. Free wifi. All very clean and new facilities. 1200ISK each when we visited in early June, one of the most reasonably priced campsites we visited. And there's a campsite cat! (We think)
  • Smaller campsite but has all the facilities you may need. Washer/dryer with travel guides in one room, large sinks outside, womens/mens/family restrooms with showers in separate building. Spots for electricity, dumpsters and a walking area off to the side. There is a gas station right across the street and great views of the sea here.
  • Beautiful view lots of facilities, WiFi and a lot of space pitty there's only one shower for boys and one for girls. But at least they have unlimited hot water :)
  • Free WiFi camping site and nice shower room. You also can watch sunset on the beach.
  • Lovely location with ocean view.
