A new and well equipped campsite opened in summer 2011 in Hellissandur.The campsite is located close to the „Seamen´s garden“ on the left side deriving from Rif. The place is surrounded by beautiful lava fields, called Sandahraun. The campsite has new sanitary facilities with toilets, running water and showers. There are many nice hiking possibilities nearby, aswell as sandy and rocky beaches.
The sun set in the fjord of Breidafjordur is something unique to experience and to remember. The national park around the Snæfellsjökull glacier adjoins the campsite.
Notice that the Campingcard is not valid on the festival weekend of Snæfellsbær town.
