CAMPSITES IN ICELAND - INTERACTIVE MAP:

The interactive map (right) gives the outline location of all 58 campsites used by us in Iceland during our summer 2017 expedition

Each site links to the chart below which gives details of:

  • campsite name
  • address, telephone number and GPS co-ordinates
  • date of our stay in 2017
  • cost per night for camper pitch, 2 adults, electricity and showers
  • campsite features together with our comments
  • assessment-rating

Campsites have been rated on a scale  +5 (excellent) through to -5 (dreadful); we have tried to be as objective and consistent as possible, basing our assessment on standards specifically applicable to Iceland, over an amalgamation of the following criteria:

  • attitudes shown, the welcome we received, and standards of hospitality and helpfulness
  • location and setting
  • standard of facilities
  • price and value for money

Comments given relate purely to the dates of our stay during the period May~Sept 2017. Prices per night cover campervan pitch, 2 adults, showers, and electricity, and are quoted in Icelandic Krona (current exchange rate, January 2020, around 162 ISK to pound sterling)

ICELANDIC CAMPING CARD:

The Icelandic Camping Card is like a pre-paid credit card holding 28 campsite stay-units, at about 40 participating campsites around Iceland, allegedly offering a cost saving on normal prices. Each card is valid for 28 nights' stay between May and September, for 2 adults with a tent, caravan or campervan; it does however only cover campsite charges and not payment for electricity and government-imposed tourist tax.

It can be purchased in advance from Icelandic Camping Card and costs around Ç159; you can also buy it directly from participating Icelandic campsites and Post Offices.

But there are significant reservations about its true value. As can be seen from chart below, less than 50% of sites we used accepted the Camping Card; and with reduced costs from seniors' discounts, available or negotiated at most sites, the supposed cost savings from buying a Camping Card are very uncertain. Our experience also was that in a stay of almost 5 months, we only just managed to use all its 28 slots; with the likelihood of unused slots, the Camping Card's real worth is doubtful.

A lovely, straightforward site in delightful fishing village of Borgarfj÷r­ur Eystri on remote NE coast; a long 70kms drive over unsurfaced road and difficult mountain pass to reach the village, but worth it when you get there
Welcome: early in season, reception unmanned
Setting:
large site in village outskirts, set beneath hillock of ┴lfaborg, looking out across village, church and fjord, and surrounded by snow-covered circle of enclosing distant rhyolite peaks; a superb setting; gravelled, powered pitches, and plenty of grassy space for tents; few tourists making for a good community of like-minded, serious travellers
Facilities: straightforward WC/showers (400 ISK coins) but limited in number; kitchen/wash-up and common room; washing machine (500 ISK) but no wifi; shop and fuel in village; ┴lfaborg cafÚ sells excellent fish soup but very expensive
Price: expensive at
3,400 ISK plus 2x400 ISK coins for showers

Lovely to wander around village with Eiders and Ring-plovers along fjord shoreline But some cruise ships anchor out in fjord ferrying hordes of tourists who mill intrusively everywhere

For all the tourist hype about this being Iceland's highest farmstead at 570m, inhabited since Settlement times, it is in fact an over-expensive and pretentious tourist trap, targeted in mercenary manner at busloads of American tourists who stop off here for outrageously prices lunches. The attached campsite, although stunningly located on the Ëdß­ahraun highland volcanic plateau, is also stunningly over-priced, with stunningly minimal facilities. Don't believe the misleading hype about being a fully equipped campsite with full facilities. It isn't!!
Welcome: the young staff at reception try their best, but are too busy extracting money from flocks of American tourists to have time to give other than a perfunctory welcome to campers
Setting:
there's no doubt that this is a memorable location, and quite a thrilling experience to camp at 570m on a magnificent and totally exposed plateau in the face of the chilling Icelandic gales
blasting across the open highlands, with horizons lined by volcanic peaks and the distant snow-covered peak of Her­ubrei­ and crater of Askja. A totally open camping area with very limited number of power supplies and zero shelter from the gales. But no doubts, an amazing location
Facilities: shamefully minimal and basic facilities given all the hype and outrageous prices: 1 WC for the entire site (the other is empty and unfitted and serves only as a rain shelter for the inevitable queues for the 1 WC!); common room in turf-roofed hut with basic cold water wash-up sink; no kitchen and cooker rings but no gas - serves no purpose! 2 showers but 600m distant in guest accommodation; wifi at reception but limited range; no washing machine
Price: outrageous given lack of facilities: 4,200 ISK plus 800 ISK for power plus 2x400 ISK for showers
Thankfully
Camping Card accepted
If you are prepared to pay these silly prices and put up with such disgracefully minimal facilities, the location is a worthwhile experience; but that's the only positive thing to be said about
Fjalladřr­ and saved the place from negative rating.
Don't even consider the over-promoted jeep tours into the interior to Askja crater, unless you've just won the lottery!!

3,000 ISK
all inclusive
A welcoming and bijou little campsite run by community association, tucked away into a sheltered, rocky terrace overlooking the unassuming but hospitable and enterprising township community of Vopnafjordur
Welcome: friendly and helpful welcome from lady at the Kaupavangur
former customs-house that now serves as a cafÚ-cum-community-centre-cum-Tourist Information and campsite reception, down in the town, and by her husband/children who call around evenings for payment
Setting: delightful setting
tucked away into a flat, grassy terrace above town's upper street by the school, sheltered by hedges and rocky outcrops; lovely views down over town and harbour, backed by snow-covered mountains of Smj÷rfj÷ll on far side of fjord
Facilities: straightforward but clean, modern and cosily heated WC/showers; wash-up sinks with hot water, but no kitchen, wi-fi or washing/drying machine; well-stocked supermarket, filling station and Vinbu­in in town; free wifi in Kaupavangur
community-centre
Price: excellent value at
all inclusive 3,000 ISK

Vopnafjordur is an unpretentious but welcoming, friendly and self-sufficient, enterprising community, that has impressively worked hard to attract employment to the town and retained its senior school, stopping youngsters from leaving; the sense of community spirit is really noticeable.

A must is the museum at Kaupavangur
former customs-house which documents the dreadful hardships caused by 1875 eruption of Viti and consequent poisoning of farmland by volcanic ash, forcing over quarter of region's population to emigrate to Canada or USA

A basic campsite, totally open and exposed with no protection against chill easterly wind
Welcome: pleasant welcome from chatty attendant at village sports hall/swimming pool/TIC, who gave us interesting information about ١rsh÷fn's fishing industry; campsite unmanned but warden calls round evenings for payment
Setting: site located on open and bleakly exposed hill-top moorland on village outskirts, looking out over ١rsh÷fn and its harbour; no shelter whatsoever from chill and blustery wind that blows constantly even when sun shines; 2 soft and tussocky grassy areas with risk of bogging in; higher gravelled area but even more exposed to wind
Facilities:  facilities basic and limited: WC/showers in heated hut; wash-up sink with cold water only, no kitchen; no wifi or washing machine; well-stocked Samkaup Strax supermarket and filling station in village
Price:

(adults)

plus
700 ISK power

Raufarh÷fn is mainland Iceland's northernmost settlement on NE coast of MelrakkaslÚtta peninsula, with Arctic Circle passing by island of Grimsey just off nearby northern coast. Once a prosperous herring fishing port, but now rather sad and passÚ community with decline of fishing, leaving just 250 residents. A small, straightforward village campsite
Welcome:
unmanned site; warden expected to call round evenings, but no one came for payment
Setting: small, flat grassy camping area
wonderfully sheltered from winds within a unique circular embankment; although this restricts view across lake and village, it does give welcome protection from winds
Facilities: straightforward but functional facilities: heated WC/shower, wash-up sink with cold water only; water filling hose; no wifi or kitchen; shop, ATM, and automat filling station in village
Price: 2,000 ISK (seniors), 2,400 ISK (full charge) plus 700 ISK power; Camping Card accepted

Raufarh÷fn's fishing fleet has dwindled since decline of herring fishing industry and now only a small fish freezing plant remains to provide employment; the village is now a shadow of its once prosperous heyday times, and is desperately trying to 're-invent' (sic!) itself by attracting tourism with hair-brained schemes like the partially completed Arctic Henge monstrosity above the village

A straightforward but homely little site with good facilities, at northern edge-of-nowhere fishing village of Kˇpasker
Welcome: site unmanned, but cheery and welcoming lady calls round evenings for payment
Setting: site at edge of village set in an area of subsidence caused by 1976 earthquake, sheltered from winds beneath embankments; grassy but uneven and sloping camping area with only a little flat space and 1 power supply; views out across SE valley
Facilities:  although straightforward, facilities were some of the best of NE Iceland group of village campsites: well-equipped, heated and spotlessly clean WC/shower, and cleverly designed open-air wash-up (piping hot water) enclosed by folding doors from wind and rain; shop, Vinbu­in, post office, ATM, and filling station in village; no wifi at campsite, but open-access free wifi at Earthquake Centre 300m
Price: 2,000 ISK (seniors), 2,400 ISK (full charge) plus 700 ISK power; Camping Card accepted

Earthquake Centre (600 ISK seniors) in village school documents geological background and personal recollections of Dec 1975~Jan 1976 6.3 Richter scale earthquake which flattened village; Kˇpasker set in active seismic zone where Mid-Atlantic Ridge passes nearby to enter Arctic Ocean west of village at Oxarfj÷r­ur Bay; brochure available with local walking paths around earthquake fissures.

J÷kulsßrglj˙fur National Park exploits its state-sponsored camping monopoly in ┴sbyrgi area to charge extraordinarily outrageous prices for a mediocre campsite close to ┴sbyrgi horseshoe canyon
Welcome: nearby National Park so-called Information Centre acts as campsite reception, but provides nothing worthwhile; while the staff are helpful, no detailed, usable maps available to help interpret complex topography of ┴sbyrgi; it is simply a glorified tourist gift shop!  Girl calls round each morning for payment
Setting:  large site divided into separate rough grassy areas, just off Route 85 and Route 861 leading down length of ┴sbyrgi Canyon, and set alongside the 50m high rock walls of the Eyjan rocky peninsula in centre of canyon
Facilities:  WC/showers facilities mediocre and limited; most were locked and showers need 5x100 ISK coins; wash-up sinks with hot water; washing/drying machines (extra cost); no kitchen or cooking facilities (the labelled kitchen was an empty bench!!); free wifi at National Park Information Centre 1km. At such extortionate prices, you should be able to expect better!
Price: 1.600 ISK (adults), 1,000 ISK (power), 500 ISK (shower):  TOTAL = 5,200 ISK (ú32.50)

Large site with incredibly offensive owners, set next to Hei­arbŠr guest house/restaurant 20kms SW of H˙savÝk on Route 87; H˙savÝk Camping closed for renovation in 2017; site busy with both tourists and local caravans, creating a crowded, noisy environment, not at all a pleasant place to stay
Welcome:  offensively rude non-welcome from the surly owners, too busy dealing with restaurant guests to be bothered with campers
Setting:  in fertile valley 20kms SW of H˙savÝk on Route 87; large, rough grassed camping area, but with only a few power outlets along nearer hedge, meaning that everyone crowds into this small area competing for limited power sockets; this creates crowded, anarchic and noisy environment, in an otherwise peaceful farming valley
Facilities:  all facilities in restaurant building 300m from camping area: WCs in restaurant reception; small geothermally heated swimming pool (extra charge), showers by swimming pool changing rooms; kitchen/wash-up hut at rear of restaurant with scalding hot water; wifi in restaurant (250 ISK extra); nearest shops in H˙savÝk
Price:  1,250 ISK (adults - no seniors' discount), 800 ISK (power); Camping Card accepted

3,500 ISK (adults)

 
An over-pretentious, over-expensive, but uninviting, superannuated guest-house, with an attached disgracefully appointed campsite; this place is well past its prime and living off past glories, but still exploiting its position next to Go­afoss waterfalls
Welcome:  unwelcoming, take-it-or-leave-it attitude from guest-house surly owner
Setting:  located on east bank of Skjßlfandafljˇt river by Go­afoss; lawned camping area but ubiquitously sloping ground, very wet with danger of bogging in; minimal power supply limited to 1 antiquated socket on old barn at corner of camping area
Facilities:  to say minimal facilities would be overgenerous: a converted cargo container with no door, leaving hand-basins, WCs and shower open to elements, with rain and cold wind blowing directly in; 1 shower with leaking drain, leaving flooded floor and sordid mess; no kitchen or wash-up, and alleged wifi did not work;  and that was it!! 
Price:  normal price was 3,500 ISK, but we negotiated a discount to 2,500 ISK by threatening to walk away!

Avoid this place like the plague, and return east 12kms over the hills and instead stay at Dalakofinn Camping at Laugar (see below)

Setting:  wonderful position 5 kms from Ring Road along Fnjˇskadalur; site has 3 camping areas terraced up valley side: top one, unseen and screened by trees for statics (well used by locals from Akureyri), lower one for tents, and middle one with power for campervans; lovely setting looking along valley and across to natural birch forest of Vaglaskˇgur lining lower slopes of 730m Vaglofjall which encloses Fnjˇskadalur; uncharacteristically non-Icelandic with its green and pleasant lushness

Small guest house/camping 2 kms north of Akureyri, busy but far preferable to the huge and over-occupied City and Hamrar Campsites in centre and south of city.
Welcome:  perfunctory greeting from young staff at guest house reception, who otherwise took little interest or concern for campsite, and had to be asked to re-fill WC rolls and empty bins; up side of this was that no one bothered to collect shower fees!
Setting:  open, rough and unevenly tussocky grassy camping area, with limited power supplies at one end only where caravans and camping-cars therefore tended to cluster; much traffic noise from nearby Ring Road, but superb distant views up Glerßrdalur towards snow-covered Mount Kerling (see photo)
Facilities:  facilities very basic and limited given size of campsite, resulting in queues: 1 shower, 2 WCs; partially covered sitting area with 1 double electric ring and kettle passing as kitchen, much in demand given number of tent campers; open air wash-up sinks, water filling hose; wifi at guest house but not reaching camping area; Bonus and Netto supermarkets 2kms in city
Price:  expensive for limited site: 2,500 ISK (no seniors discount) plus 2x400 ISK for showers (but no one checks!); Camping Card accepted

Akureyri, Iceland's second city, is a lovely place and well worth spending time there, simply wandering around old city centre and fishing port:  modernistic Cathedral with stained glass from old Coventry Cathedral, Botanic Gardens thoroughly recommended; Aviation Museum at airport, Akureyri's famous Brynja ice cream at A­alstrŠti, Glerßrdalur and Hli­arfjall in hills above city, Krossanesborgir Nature Reserve just opposite Lˇnsß for superb bird-life and wild flora

A straightforwardly basic and poor value municipal site with minimal facilities, set by sports centre/swimming pool in centre of port-town of Ëlafsfj÷r­ur
Welcome:   site unmanned but chatty warden calls round evenings for payment
Setting:  Ëlafsfj÷r­ur totally isolated by mountains, with access to town only by narrow, single-lane M˙lag÷ng Tunnel from Dalvik and double-lane HÚ­insfjar­arg÷ng Tunnels northwards to Siglufj÷r­ur; Ëlafsfj÷r­ur set in small area at head of its fjord, within enclosing ring of mountains; campsite located alongside main Route 82 through town by sports centre and ornamental lake with mountain massif towering overhead; large, flat grassy camping area with some hedges for protection from wind, with magnificent views up into surrounding mountains
Facilities
:  minimal facilities: 2 WCs plus wash basins; wash-up sinks with hot water; no showers, no kitchen, no wifi; showers available at neighbouring swimming pool at full price entry of 800 ISK each; wifi in town library 500m; supermarket in town
Price:  given limited facilities and no showers, very poor value at expensive price of 2,800 ISK (seniors); Camping Card accepted

Ëlafsfj÷r­ur combined with Siglufj÷r­ur make up municipality of Fjallabygg­, but with decline of fishing industry, town now has a sad air of dereliction; but interesting to wander around the now largely empty harbour and closed fish-processing factories

Welcome:  site unmanned but warden calls round evenings for payment
Setting:  located alongside fishing harbour and town square by main Route 76 through centre of Siglufj÷r­ur; limited power supplies and very busy with both tourists and local caravans, also very open to public access with much urban noise

Pleasant to wander round fishing harbour, although with decline of herring fishing, now only small boats; much-promoted Herring Museum a tourist rip-off, not worth the expensive admission fee;

With absolutely minimal facilities  but ridiculously over-priced charges and noisy environment, HˇlmavÝk Camping was without doubt ICELAND'S WORST CAMPSITE If you do stay there, don't expect to get any sleep, and certainly don't expect to get a shower. You would do better to drive on 20kms round the fjord to Drangnes Camping (see below)
Welcome:  site unmanned; pay at swimming pool, or girl comes round mornings for payment
Setting:  located at entrance to village by sports centre/swimming pool; several separate camping areas, but all totally overcrowded in summer with rowdy Icelandic holiday-makers; even worse however, nearby parking area by service station used overnight by heavy refrigerated trucks who keep their engines running all night
Facilities
:  absolute minimum of facilities: each camping area has grubby, uncleaned and draughty WC hut (one out of order) and wash-up sink; 9-00am~10-oopm WC/wash basins are accessible in nearby Community Centre (but not if Centre booked for events or private functions); showers only in swimming pool at full admission charge; supermarket and filling station just opposite
Price:  for such a basic site, charges are disgraceful: 1,240 ISK (adults - no seniors' discount), 1,240 ISK (power), TOTAL = 3,720 ISK

A perfect little gem of a peaceful village campsite, with lovely welcome, spotless facilities, best value price in whole of Iceland, and total peacefulness even in peak summer; all in all a lovely stay (see photo). S˙­ßvÝk rightly can be proud of its campsite which sets a standard other Icelandic villages could do well to follow
Welcome:  site unmanned, but charming lady calls round evenings for payment

Setting:  beautiful mountain setting in fjord-side fishing village of S˙­ßvÝk, 12kms from West Fjords main town of ═safj÷r­ur; S˙­ßvÝk was destroyed by avalanche in Jan 1995 with tragic death of 14 villagers, and as result village now protected by avalanche bunds; village was re-built further south out of avalanche risk zone, and old village now only occupied in summer; campsite now set here on lower slopes of S˙­ßrvÝkurhlÝ­'s towering mountain wall from which avalanche fell! Wonderful setting overlooking ┴ltafj÷r­ur and fishing harbour
Facilities:  3 WCs and 2 showers, with covered wash-up sinks (piping hot water), all brand new and kept spotlessly clean and well-stocked with washing up liquid and shower soaps; no kitchen or wifi, but large covered cooking/sitting area with BBQ-grills, ideal for tent campers in wet weather; clean water-filling hose; small shop and filling station in village; Bonus and Netto supermarkets in ═safj÷r­ur
Price:  excellent value price (best in Iceland): 550 ISK (seniors), (50% of adult charge 1,100 ISK), 900 ISK (power). Total all-inclusive 2,000 ISK

Arctic Fox Rescue Centre in S˙­ßvÝk well worth a visit; ═safj÷r­ur is a fascinating port-town

plus 400 ISK (swimming pool showers)


BolungarvÝk fishing village at far west, accessible only through BolungarvÝkurg÷ng Tunnel from ═safj÷r­ur. But its camping was more of a building site than a campsite: major extension work on neighbouring swimming pool, with noise and dust from sanding down concrete work taking place late into evening, filthy mud covering roadways, and builders' trucks blocking campsite
Welcome:  site unmanned, and no one came round for payment; in any case we should not have paid given the conditions!
Setting:
 rough grassy patch behind town swimming pool, now overwhelmed by noise, dust, filth and builders' trucks from swimming pool building site; thoroughly disgusting; in comparison, the noise of passing fish lorries was insignificant! Only good thing to be said about BolungarvÝk Camping was its setting alongside Hˇlsß River where it tumbled down to sea, and looking directly up at magnificent mountain walls enclosing village, with sculpted corrie on face of Hßdegisfjall
Facilities
:  limited and rudimentary facilities: antiquated WCs and 2 tiny wash basins too small to wash in; outdoor wash-up sinks with hot water; no showers, no kitchen, no wifi; showers available in swimming pool but at full entrance cost to use them
Price:  1,100 ISK (adults), 1,100 (power), plus 400 ISK (swimming pool showers); Camping Card accepted.
Utterly unacceptable for such a disgusting site.  Of course, we did not pay

Welcome:  site unmanned, but friendly family calls round evenings for payment
Setting:

Price:  1,100 ISK (adults), 900 ISK (seniors); you need to ask for seniors' discount

Flateyri engulfed by avalanches in Oct 1995 killing 20 residents out of village population of less than 200; this prompted government funded programme to build avalanche protection bunds at vulnerable villages.
With decline of fishing industry,
Flateyri now has an even smaller population and a sorry and passÚ air. Highlight is second-hand bookshop (Bˇkab˙­in), a quaint and seemingly incongruous curiosity, founded in the early 20th century

Welcome:

1,200 ISK (adults),

A grimly unwelcoming, inhospitable and over-expensive site with mediocre facilities, and an appalling telephone response
Welcome:  utterly indifferent and unresponsive non-welcome from the why-should-I-bother-to-serve-you girl at hotel reception; and if you think that's bad, try telephoning!!  If that represents the service you would get from the hotel, it speaks volumes about the place's standards!
Setting:  rough grass camping area alongside the unsightly concrete bunker that passes for Eldborg Hotel; just 1 power supply in the whole field alongside the hedge that gives some shelter from the gales that blow across the Southern SnŠfellsnes coastline; but wonderful views of nearby basalt mountains
Facilities
:  mediocre and unkempt facilities: 2 WCs and wash basins; electric ring and wash-up sink with hot water; all in dingy underground bunker under hotel; had to demand that hotel staff refill WC-rolls, renew towels, clean WCs and empty bins, all left in filthy, unkempt state
Price:  1,200 ISK (adults), 1,000 ISK (power), 700 ISK (showers in nearby swimming pool ); Camping Card accepted

The sheer outrageous greed of the owners has to be admired!!! A negative rating of greater than -5 has never been awarded before, and a rating of -10 to Snjofell Camping Arnarstapi shows how utterly bad the place was
Welcome:  the lad who called evenings to collect payment clearly took a lot of stick from campers complaining at the outrageous charges and minimal facilities, "but we do have toilets" was his response!! ; he readily agreed to a reduced seniors' charge of 2,000 ISK
Setting:
 a large open, grassy camping field at edge of holiday village of Arnarstapi with minimal power supplies
Facilities
:  minimal facilities: 2 WCs and a cold water wash-up trough; no showers, no hot water, no wifi, no kitchen
Price:  outrageously expensive 3,000 ISK per campervan, 1,000 ISK (power); lad collecting payment empathised with our protest and agreed a reduced seniors' charge of 2,000 ISK

Arnarstapi~Hellnar cliff-top coastal path passing the Gatklettur natural rock-arch is a MUST

An over-noisy, over-crowded, and over-expensive site, with a mercenary, unwelcoming owner

Welcome:  indifferent and perfunctory welcome from young staff at reception
Setting:  land had once formed Hamragar­ar Farm, now abandoned and owned by Rangßr■ing Eystra municipality; as well as being overrun with tourists, campsite also used as base for adventure tours up into ١rsm÷rk highlands; grassed camping area spread over several levels with limited power supplies, magnificent views along the cliff-line to waterfalls, but utterly overwhelmed by tourists

Welcome:  very friendly, helpful and welcoming greeting from lady warden
Setting:  campsite located in crater bowl of an ancient volcanic caldera, surrounded by over-towering cliffs of Nor­urklettur, on outskirts of Heimaey just beyond football stadium and golf course; cliffs provide shelter from predominant SE winds that blow across Heimaey; a truly unique setting (see photo)

A meagre, totally over-priced site with basic, minimal facilities, but in wonderful location immediately alongside Skˇgafoss waterfalls at foot of Eyjafjallaj÷kull glacier and volcano
Welcome:  indifferent and brusquely unwelcoming greeting at hostel; told to check in campsite reception which we never found open; campsite unmanned but no one came round for payment on a pouring wet night; how therefore could you pay - not that we had any intention of paying such exploitative prices!!
Setting:  camping area was a gravelled corner with 1 power supply of large public car park next to Skˇgafoss waterfalls, plus grassy area for tents, very muddy and boggy after wet weather; if you don't mind all the noise and intrusion of a crowded car park at a tourist-infested major attraction, it's a splendid location by Skˇgß river looking across to Skˇgafoss, if you can see the falls in the misty rain!
Facilities
:  basic and minimal facilities: WC also open to public access so always queues, but somehow kept clean; showers charged at 300 ISK extra and not worth bothering with; wash-up sink with hot water; covered veranda for tent campers
Price:  with unending tourist demand, the most expensive campsite in whole of Iceland, simply silly prices: 1,500 ISK (adults-no seniors reduction), 1,000 ISK (power), 2x300 ISK (showers)

Be sure to visit the

A large but straightforward municipal site in lovely setting in south coast service centre village of VÝk, but spoilt by offensively rude warden, inadequate facilities, overwhelmed with tourists, excessive noise levels and unduly high prices - otherwise it's OK!
Welcome:  thoroughly inhospitable and monosyllabic non-welcome from surly and ill-mannered warden; clearly a man who gained much pleasure in offending guests whose presence pays his wages; a person totally ill-suited in temperament to his job
Setting:  pleasant setting on flat, grassy land below escarpment of rocky cliffs in VÝk village, looking out to coast with cliffs of Reynisfjall and off-shore sea-stacks, and distant sound of pounding Atlantic surf along south coast; but wet climate late in season and careless campers churned up turf leaving muddy mess
Facilities:  facilities limited and inadequate for size of campsite: WCs, 1 shower (charged at 200 ISK extra) but even if you paid, hot water was so limited that you were not assured of a hot shower; wash-up sinks, large common room, with just an electric kettle and microwave passing as a kitchen; water-filling hose; wifi included but limited to common room; washing/drying machines (500 ISK each extra)

Large and scandalously expensive National Park monopoly, with disgraceful facilities, same as J÷kulsßrglj˙fur National Park in north
Welcome:  totally perfunctory non-welcome from young Jobsworth at reception, whose only response to our comment about monopolistic prices was to laugh with I just work here, I don't make the rules. If we had our way both he and the fat cat bureaucrats in ReykjavÝk who run the National Park would soon be out of their lucrative jobs!
Setting:  huge and formally laid out camping areas alongside Skaftafell National Park Visitor Centre; only 2 of areas have power supplies, therefore in much demand; impressive views from camping area of 2 Vatnaj÷kull outlet-glaciers, Skaftafellsj÷kull and Svinafellsj÷kull, with backdrop of Hvannadalsn˙kur, Iceland's highest mountain at 2110m
Facilities:  if only the National Park provided facilities of a standard commensurate with grossly inflated prices, but of course it doesn't - facilities are basic, hopelessly limited and inadequate given the size of campsite: 3 WCs with bedraggled campers queuing outside in rain waiting to use them! 3 showers, little used since prices so high! wash-up sink with lukewarm water; no cooking facilities, no covered shelter for tent campers, no wifi

A large, overcrowded and over-priced site with sub-basic and inadequate facilities; like all the South Iceland campsites, insatiably unending tourist demand leads to greed-driven extortionate prices and complacently low standards
Welcome:  indifferent  perfunctory welcome from staff at reception
Setting:  only the magnificent setting saves the place from a -5 rating: large site tiered up hillside on outskirts of H÷fn village, with grassed lower levels for tents and gravelled higher tiers with power for campervans; spectacular 180║ panorama of mountainous skyline and intervening glaciers, all topped by Vatnaj÷kull snow-fields; but downside was the overcrowding, with late arrivals, and persistent traffic driving around in search of a space; constant shouting and car door slamming until all hours and from first light, making sleep impossible
Facilities
:  despite high prices, facilities sub-basic and inadequate given size of site: limited number of WCs meaning continuous queues, just 2 showers (disgusting drainage), wash basins with lukewarm water, limited cooking facilities (1 double electric ring); 1 word comes to mind - DISGRACEFUL
Price:  1,650 ISK (adults), 1,250 ISK (seniors), 750 ISK (power), 2x50 ISK (2 minute showers)

15 and 21 May




250 DKK (inc 2x10 DKK coins for showers) A wonderfully hospitable and well-appointed site operated by Tˇrshavn Commune
Welcome: welcome could not be bettered: reception open to greet new arrivals at 6-00am from early morning Smyril Line ferry
M/S Norr÷na docking at Tˇrshavn from Denmark; when weary and disorientated from early disembarkation, new arrivals are greeted with hospitality by the charming lady-warden who serves home-made chocolate cake as part of her welcome; later when you are settled in, she gives helpful practical advice eg on parking in town together with a parking time-disk, and location of supermarkets
Setting: located on east coast of
Streymoy 1 km from Tˇrshavn port, with magnificent views looking out across sound Nˇls°y island, but the price is that it's right in face of SE gale blowing in driving rain; gravel surface for campervans, and lovely grass pitches for tents
Facilities: facilities second to none, brand new and spotlessly clean: WCs/showers, with well-equipped kitchen/wash-up (but no microwave) and comfortably furnished common room; fee site-wide wifi; washing/drying machines (extra cost); water-filling hose; supermarkets in town
Price: slightly expensive at 250 DKK (inc 2x10 DKK coins for showers)

A wonderful welcome to the Faroes, and convenient for final night before ferry departure

The only hostel/campsite on western island of Vßgar (approached by 5kms long Vßgar-tunnel under Vestmannasund which separates Streymoy from Vßgar), located in Mi­vßgur village
Welcome:  warm welcome from young owner, Kristjan Johansen, who is excellent source of advice on walking routes and features on
Vßgar
Setting: tarmaced camping area with power alongside hostal car park, and grassed tent area, overlooking magnificent sweep of
Vßgafjor­ur bay and its fish farms and off-shore islands; irritating noise of regularly passing quarry trucks along main road from little harbour down below until late evening
Facilities: limited WC/showers and good kitchen/wash-up in hostel; free site-wide wifi; washing/frying machine (extra charge); Bonus supermarket and Landsin alcohol shop in
Mi­vßgur village
Price: good value at 200 DKK (all inclusive)

plus 2x 20 DKK coins for showers
Large and dreary caravan site, crammed full with 100s of static caravans, parked in regimented rows; set by harbour in port-village of Vestmanna on NW Streymoy; why so many Faroese would chose to park their caravans in such a sordidly unattractive place remained a mystery
Welcome: pleasantly helpful response to telephone enquiry from lady-owner, who called round later for payment
Setting: so-called campsite is nothing more than an
utterly soulless black gravel parking area for static caravans; a grimly soulless environment, thankfully deserted in early May, but in summer .... horrors!!
Facilities: service building functional with modern, clean WC/showers, and kitchen/wash-up; included wifi (password from owner); supermarket in
Vestmanna now closed so come well-provisioned
Price: poor value at 240 DKK plus 2x 20 DKK coins for showers

Vestmanna is a grubby industrial fishing port, and site of Faroes' main hydro-generating station with water pipe-lines snaking down hillside from dammed lakes in surrounding hills. Only reason to come all the way over to Vestmanna are the very expensive boat trips for sea bird-watching along Vestmanna Sound cliffs, and the Saga Museum at TIC. Do however be sure to visit the charmingly delightful fjord-side village of KvÝvik with its magnificent setting and excavated 10~11th century Viking farmstead

This must be the most surrealistically located campsite ever used, set on the former astro-turf football pitch at Ei­i (pronounced something like Eye-yuh) village, complete with goal-posts and line markings, in unique position facing out northwards over wild Atlantic coastline and cliff-tops of Eysturoy
Welcome: superbly hospitable and helpful welcome from owners, the ebullient Martin K˙rberg and his wife Hertha; he is a former player with the
Ei­i football team and relates entertaining tales about matches played here on the old pitch: if the match was going badly, the ball was hoofed out into the Atlantic!
Setting: what else can you say about camping on an astro-turf football pitch which is set in a rocky cove facing out onto the North Atlantic surf and cliffs of a wild coastline, and you don't have to change ends at half-time! a wonderfully surrealistic experience to bore your grandkids with!!
Facilities: basic WC/showers, with kitchen/wash-up, all in former football club changing rooms; included pitch-wide wifi; washing/drying machines (20 DKK)
Price: excellent value at 200 DKK

Be sure to walk northwards from campsite around rocky cliff-tops for magnificent views seawards to Kellingin and Risin sea stacks off precipitous high cliffs of Eysturoy's northern tip at Ei­iskollur; advice from Martin on route

Another uniquely located campsite at remote and isolated hamlet of Gjˇgv (pronounced Dyek-ve) at NE tip of Eysturoy
Welcome:  book in at Flatnagar­ur guest-house across in village; rather officiously over-formal but welcoming greeting, a total contrast with the easy-going casual manner at
Ei­i Camping
Setting: it's a long and demanding drive over to Gjˇgv, whichever of the 2 possible routes you choose: both involve a narrow, single-track mountain road with much height gain via severely steep hairpins; the longer but preferable route is from
Ei­i over the shoulder of SlŠtaratndur mountain, rather than the shorter but more challenging and steeper hairpins up from Funningur on shore of Funningsfjor­ur; gravelled camping area set on a sloping and very airy, wind-swept elevated terrace, with spectacular outlook across Dj˙pini Sound to distant cliff-line of Kalsoy island, with ewes and lambs grazing in surrounding pastures; pleasantly deserted and peaceful in May, but confined area would soon feel crowded in mid summer
Facilities: clean and modern WC/showers and wash-up (no kitchen) in facilities hut; included site-wide wifi
Price: good value at 200 DKK; returnable deposit of 250 DKK for facilities hut key and chain-padlock for each pitch

Gjˇgv hamlet clustered along Dalß river which flows along long valley down to sea, dauntingly enclosed on landward side by ring of dark enclosing mountains; little harbour set in spectacular 200m long natural cleft-gorge in rocks below cliffs; viewed from above, the little hamlet seems to cling precariously to the cliff-gorge; Gjˇgv in Faroese means cleft

FACTORS TO BE AWARE OF ABOUT DRIVING AND CAMPING IN ICELAND:

If you are considering driving on a camping trip to Iceland, you should be aware of several important factors, both in your planning and when you are there:

  • Government Tourist Tax:  in addition to campsite charges listed in the above charts, the Icelandic government requires campsite owners to levy a tourist residence tax of 333 ISK per tent or campervan

  • Icelandic weather:  Iceland's weather can be very fickle, depending on wind direction: one day the sun can be shining, and you'll be barbecuing in shirt-sleeves; the next day, with change of wind direction to the north, you'll need layers of Arctic standard clothing and waterproofs, even in mid-summer. Iceland is also prey to constant North Atlantic winds. You may be an experienced camper, but you will never have experienced winds like this, so fiercesome that you'll have difficulty opening a car door safely. We constantly witnessed naively ill-prepared, ill-equipped and totally inexperienced tourists struggling to erect their tents in the teeth of Icelandic gales! It is vital regularly to check weather forecasts (wind speed and direction, temperatures, and precipitation) for the area where you plan to camp. Two essential weather forecast web sites are the Icelandic Meteorological Office, and the Norwegian Meteorological Office for Iceland (search on locations in Iceland).

  • The overwhelming and malign impact of mass tourism:  Iceland is now utterly overwhelmed by mass tourism; tourists are effortlessly flown in from all over the world, pick up hire-cars or hire-campervans, and set out to 'do the Ring Road in a week'. This means that campsites close to the Ring Road (Route 1) all around the country are totally swamped with tourists all through the year. With time limits on what they can achieve in their limited holiday, combined with Iceland's long daylight hours during the summer period, this means that tourists will arrive at campsites very late in the evening. In today's world, when ill-manners and lack of any consideration for others has become the behavioural norm, this fact means that you will be subject to constant late night slamming of car doors and loud shouting from late arriving tourists, making sleep impossible. This was a constant irritation at all the campsites close to the Ring Road all around the country, but particularly along the South Iceland coast. Here also, the seemingly insatiably unending tourist demand tended to lead to greed-driven extortionate prices and complacently low standards.

  • Driving in Iceland:  Iceland is a very mountainous country and, outside of urban areas, the standard of roads inevitably differs considerably from what the majority of visitors are used to in their home countries. Instead however of adjusting their driving habits to Icelandic conditions, regrettably many tourists continue to drive in ways and at the levels of speed they are accustomed to at home. In addition therefore to the natural hazards of mountainous terrain, the greatest hazards for driving in Iceland, particularly on the Ring Road, are created by tourists, driving carelessly at excessive speeds with aggressive tail-gating and hazardous overtaking. We were told that the worst offenders were Americans and Chinese.

  • Unsurfaced roads:  leaving aside the F-roads of the interior passable only in 4WD, high clearance vehicles, many roads, particularly in the West Fjords and Northern Iceland are still unsurfaced. The Icelandic Roads Authority web site provides an invaluable map showing the road network with asphalt roads in blue and unsurfaced roads in brown: Roads Surfaces Map. Most unsurfaced are passable with normal vehicles (we drove many miles on Iceland's gravelled roads in our VW camper) but they do require particular care. Accidents regularly happen when drivers fail to slow at the transition from paved to unsurfaced road with resultant loss of control. The end of asphalt and beginning of sections of unsurfaced roads is indicated by Malbik endar road signs (see above right). The other constant concern was approaching tourist cars constantly failing to slow as they passed, resulting in windscreen threatening showers of stones.

  • Road Safety in Iceland:  the Icelandic Roads Authority and Icelandic Search and Rescue Team both publish worthwhile advice on safe driving in Iceland. Headlights should be turned on at all times of day or night. Livestock on the road (horses, cattle, and particularly sheep and lambs) are a constant hazard to be aware of. While it is tempting to glance around at spectacular scenery, Icelandic roads require constant attention to driving conditions. Again a frequent cause of accidents are tourists blithely distracted by rubber-necking attractive features, or stopping on a busy road to take photographs. Single-lane bridges occur regularly on Icelandic roads indicated by the Einbrei­ bru road sign (see right), even on the main Ring Road, and are a frequent cause of accidents as tourists hurtle across regardless of approaching traffic; single-lane bridges courtesy gives priority to the closer car, but in any case slow down. The nature of Iceland's terrain frequently results in blind summits on roads indicated by the BlindhŠd road sign (see right); the resultant absence of visibility requires reduction of speed and exercise of care on approaching a blind summit, particularly with the high likelihood of a speeding tourist in the middle of the road in the opposite direction! All of this advice could of course be summed up by use of common sense, but our experience of almost 5 months driving in Iceland shows that tourists leave their common sense at home; the result is that driving in Iceland requires ultra caution!

  • The Aurora Borealis:  during September in all parts of Iceland, you will regularly be able to witness the wonderful atmospheric phenomenon of the Aurora Borealis. For this you will need a combination of clear sky without any cloud cover, a clear line of sight to the horizon unimpeded by trees or high ground, and the absence of light pollution. The Icelandic Meteorological Office web site includes an worthwhile Aurora Forecast
