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.

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
