The camp site in Básar is in one of the more beautiful areas in Iceland. The natural beauty is vast and a lot of interesting areas are close by. To name a few there is the volcanic site at Fimmvörðuháls, the volcano Eyjafjallajökull, the clacier Mýrdalsjökull and of course Thorsmork. The Travel Association Útivist began operation in the area around 1980 and first finished tha camp sites. The two cabins were built in the next few years.
There are many walking paths in the area. The walking path Básahringur is for both small and big feets and there is a great view from Réttarfell. The cape Útigönguhöfði is good for those who want a little harder walk. The canyon Hvannárgil is a small adventure that is not to be missed. The warden in Básar and the Útivist Offices in Reykjavík have a great walking path map that is good to have along.
