Accommodation and Activities

HQ will be at Camping Site of Arnes ( http://tjalda.is/en/arnes/ )
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,
there is a Hostel at campsite.

For camping the price is ISK1500 per person, about USD10.
For cars, it might be simplest to get a campervan (small van modified for sleeping in).
With that you have a place to sleep and a car in one.
Camper hires are for example (I dont know them)
https://happycampers.is/
https://www.gocampers.is/
https://www.kukucampers.is/
I am sure there are more options.

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:
http://www.farmholidays.is/

I know some visitors will actually just buy some cheap tents and stuff and treat it as single use (for the trip).
www.rumfatalagerinn.is or similar shops have cheap camping stuff.
