  • We stumbled quite by chance on this site via tripadvisor and reviews made we want to stop. Actually I confirm, it's one of our best campsites of the stay: the sea view, large common room and heated bathroom/WC, kitchen all equipped and sale of local products. In addition, the couple that keeps this place is very friendly. I highly recommend you stop!

  • It was a lovely and friendly place to finish our trip in Iceland. You can camp or stay in an hostel. You have a shared living room when you can cook eat rest and speak. A piano Is there as sheep dog and rabbits. The owner are really nice too. On top you have free wifi & Hot shower and you can by local food. We recommand it
  • Lovely camping place with beautiful friendly owners/staff. We stayed in a camper. Fair price, all facilities included (kitchen, toilets and shower). Also check their hot tub with a scenic view, it costs additional price but definitely worth it!
  • One of the best campsites we have been in Iceland. Very friendly owners, good facilities, nice location, farm visit included in the price. Don't miss the hot pot.
  • One of the best campsites so far. Friendly owners and good facilities. Trees around provides good shelter from wind. Definitely try beef soup from local sources!
  • Bjarteyjarsandur is an absolutely wonderful and magical place. The place itself is hidden in a valley with an amazing view on Hvalfjörður and the mountains surrounding it. The campsite is somewhat small, yet seems really cosy. The staff is very friendly and strive to make you feel part of the countryside family. The facilities at the camp are astonishingly nice and reach the levels of home bathrooms, another family-friendly aspect of this location and really puts city-owned campsites to shame. If this hasn't persuaded you yet, then listen to the best part: the sheep. Bjarteyjarsandur is not only a great campsite, but also a farm. In the mornings you may be woken by the sound sheep being herded, during the day you may enjoy the views of the dogs interacting with the sheep herds and in the evenings you can observe the peaceful grass-grazing beasts in the light of the setting Icelandic sun.

Where to stay in Reykjavik

In this highly walkable capital, many of Reykjavik's hotels and guesthouses offer close proximity to the city's popular attractions, bars, and restaurants. The waterfront offers an exciting dose of activity. Although Reykjavik provides plenty of accommodations to its flocks of visitors, there is a dearth of budget options in the city. Price-conscious visitors should consider staying in a hostel, with both private and dorm rooms available, or a nearby campsite. Although the campground is not as centrally located as some hotels, guests are better positioned to take advantage of the natural surroundings.
