Þakgil

Top choice campground in Mælifell

The simple, idyllic campsite at Þakgil, a green bowl among stark mountains and dramatic rock formations, makes a convenient base for exploring the Mælifell ridge area. The simple cottages have bathrooms and kitchenettes. Showers and barbecue on-site.

You can drive with 4WD to Þakgil, 15km along an extremely rough dirt road (Rte 214) that branches off Rte 1 about 5km east of Vík; there is also a hiking trail from Vík.
