Hofsós Camping Ground

The camp site is sheltered with trees. There is electricity, toilets, shower and hot and cold running water. The camp site is a short distance from a new swimming pool at Hofsós that has received many awards for a great design. A good day is to have a swim in the swimming pool, get an icecream at Fjóluís in Lónkot, visit the Icelandic Emigration Center and have a dinner at Sólvík. It is also fun to go sailing around the islands or go fishing, see more information on www.hafogland.is. For more information on what to do in Skagafjörður visit www.visitskagafjordur.is

The camp sites in the town Sauðárkrókur, Hofsós, Varmahlíð and at Hólar are operated together. It is possible to stay the first night in one of these camp sites and pay less during the next night in some of the other camp sites. It is necessary to provide a receipt from the first camp site.

The Icelandic Emigration Center

During the years 1870-1914 one out of every five Icelanders fled the country to escape the poor conditions in Iceland. The Icelandic Emigration Center at Hofsós is an impressive museum telling the story of those who set off west to make a new life in a different country. There is also a genealogical information and educational centre, a conference room, a library and a shop.

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.
