Accommodation and Activities

The HQ is located about 100 km to the East of Reykjavik.


There is a swimming pool and hot jacuzzi at HQ.
Those who dont want to camp and prefer rooms,
Hostel at campsite will be open, details later.

There are other options found on:
https://Aribnb.com
https://booking.com
and
Steinsholt ( http://ww.steinsholt.is ) which is on the way to takeoff.
Leirubakki ( http://www.leirubakki.is ) on the east side of takeoff.
Cottage rentals:
https://bungalo.is/

And farmstays:

I know some visitors will actually just buy some cheap tents and stuff and treat it as single use (for the trip).

The shops have not started selling summer stuff, but this is feasible option if you agree in staying in a tent :-)
