After taking many Sunday drives upp past Höfðabrekka the idea arose to make the area more sutable for turists. In Þakgil there was enough room for a campsite, good shelter from the wind, a creek which could be used to produce electricity and a cave which could be turned into a messhall.
The campsite is now fully operational, with restrooms and a dining room in the cave. The future includes getting electricity from the creek and opening new accomodation in chalets and caves. Also adding new things like hot tubs, a fishing pond and making more walkroutes.
At the site there are a number of beautiful hiking trails suitable for everyone. Camping site, bathroom and a shower are available. The dining room is a naturally formed cave and in it is a grill and a fireplace.
Several cottagescan be rented out over the summertime in Þakgil:
Sleeping-bag accommodation for 4 in each cottage with a double bunk bed.
Kitchen with a gas stove and refrigerator.
Only cold water on tap, but you will find a shower with warm water at the campsite, next to the cabins.
