Low quality, poor service and the most expensive cost for a short hike down to the beach. Probably the only beach in Iceland that costs money to walk on...
Don't go there! plenty of more beautiful places to enjoy and spend time at.
Read some visitors complaining about the entrance fees, do bear in mind that this is a private land. It's fair to pay for the upkeep of the place given the busy traffic. The ISK 900 (June 2019) entrance fees paid allow you to drive to...More
This was our turn around location to head back to Reykjavik. Follow the dirt road on the south before the tunnel on the ring road. You'll come to the cafe at the end and go inside and pay the 900 ISK per person to get...More

The viking village set is somewhat interesting to see but it really starting to run down and we were questioning the safety of a lot of it (be careful where you step). If you are in the Hofn area and looking for an activity it...More
I stayed at this campsite on 9/14 because i wanted to take pictures of the northern lights with vestrahorn in the background (success!). the place is a dump. the host is rude. just received my credit card info and noticed that they charged me $36...More
We ended up at the end of the gravel road for some decaf coffee (I have since learned that brewed decaf doesn't exist in Iceland). We settled for tea instead, The family staff was pleasant but the atmosphere was pretty basic and didn't fit my...More
