Tourist Information

The helpful tourist office is inside the Skaftárstofa Visitor Centre, with good local info plus coverage and exhibitions on Katla Geopark and Vatnajökull National Park. This is the base for the lesser-visited western pocket of the national park, best accessed from the Fjallabak Route, and only accessible by 4WD or summer bus. The visitor centre also screens a short film on the Laki eruption.
