Hrafntinnusker

Hut, campground in The South

This hut holds 52 people (around 22 of whom sleep on mattresses on the floor in a converted attic space). There’s cold running water during the summer months, an outhouse and geothermal heating, but no refuse facilities and no showers – you must carry your rubbish to Hvangil.

It is at an elevation of 1027m – be prepared for particularly inhospitable conditions if you are camping – and it's the barest-bones of the huts. Some campers cook their food on the natural steam vents nearby; ask the warden (July and August only) to point you in the right direction. When there is no warden, water must be sourced from a stream or snow.
