Camper winter service

Gardskagi - campsite
The campsite at Garðskagi is perfect for visitors seeking freedom and open views of the ocean. It is located at Garðskagi Point and is open all year long. Garðskagi Point, the northernmost part of the Reykjanes Peninsula, offers great experience for visitors with its two lighthouses, beautiful beach, and fantastic sunsets. It is a great place to see the Northern Lights and have a good meal and a drink while waiting for them to appear. The two lighthouses help create a unique atmosphere and the weather adds up to memorable experiences, whether it be the still morning fog or the screaming, crushing winter waves. The lighthouses were built in 1897 and 1944. One is the second oldest and the other the biggest in Iceland. Garðskagi is a premium site for bird-watching where whales can also often be observed from the coast. Garðskagi is truly a hidden gem and one of the great destinations within the recently established Reykjanes Geopark. The big lighthouse, has two exhibitions, Northern Lights Show and Whale Show. Fantastic view from the top balcony. Admission is included in the museum fee. There is also a campsite on Garðskagi. Restaurant Röstin on the second floor of the Heritage and Maritime Museum offers food for a very reasonable price. Its only about 20 m from the coast and has fantastic view of the ocean. Great place to watch beautiful sunsets in the summer or to have a nice meal while waiting for the Northern Lights in the winter. Opening hours: All year For groups call manager, 893-8909 or email johann@gardskagi.com.
