Description of facilities

Vaglaskógur Campsite has five camping grounds that all offer access to restrooms and most offer access to electricity. There are showers, washing machines, and dryers in two locations and a good accessibility for wheelchairs as well as handicap accessible bathrooms on most camping grounds. All reservations are made on parka.is.

Vaglaskógur has many interesting walking paths that trace through the beautiful nature of the forest. We have a wide variety of tree species that grow in colder climates. Many species of birds live in the forest, most notably the rock ptarmigan, common snipe and white wagtail.

In the campsite area there are playgrounds (swings, seesaws, sandboxes, jumping balloon, climbing pyramid) and a football field.

There is plenty of entertainment for the whole family close by, for example Akureyri (17km through Vaðlaheiði tunnel), swimming pool and mini-golf (12km) and golf (3km).

In the absence of supervisors, the minimum age is 18 years.

A few points to keep in mind:
-On the camping site waste is recycled and we kindly ask visitors to do so during the stay.
-Cats and dogs are allowed on the camping site, but only in leash.
-It is possible to buy an adapter for trailers and camping vans from campground guards.
