The northern part of Iceland is less traveled and this is noticeable on the quiet campsite in Hofsos. Camping Hofsos is beautifully located and has a super affordable thermal infinity hot pool just 3 minutes walk from the campsite!
There will be a camp guard in the evening who will have to pay you about per person if you have a motorhome. The showers and toilets are very clean. WiFi is not available.
