Lifsmotun camping

On the farm Hjalli in the valley of Reykjadalur only 2 km from the village of Laugar halfway between Akureyri and Myvatn you can find the small Lifsmotun campsite. There is a service house with toilets and showers in heated rooms but the kitchen/dishwasing room is unheated. The campground is divided into small private sections so it's possible to book per eMail or on the phone, in advance or on arrival day. The staff is local and experts on the region and Iceland in general, ready to help you in any way.

To get to Lifsmotun campsite you turn from highway 1 on road 846 in the village of Laugar. When you have crossed the bridge you turn right. In the middle of the slope you turn right (south) again into a unmarked gravel road and drive to the end, about 2 km. There are camping signs on light-posts at the bridge and in the slope to guide you the right way. By the Sport center/swimming pool in Laugar there is also a sign/map.
