Vik Camping Tips

Arrive at Any Time, No Need to Book in Advance

You are able to pull up to the campsite at anytime during the night and you don’t need to book in advance, as there is plenty of space. There is a reception area with an attendant usually available from 8am-10pm

Good Facilities & Electricity

Vik Camping offers electricity, toilets, showers, WiFi a dining area to cook food and warm and cold running water to wash dishes.

Park as Close as You Can to the Facilities

Since Iceland is a cold and windy place, the last thing you’re going to want to do if you have to get up in the middle of the night is walk more than a minute to go to the bathroom. Park as close as you can to avoid a long walk. In the morning and evening when getting ready, we went ahead and just parked our car next to the facilities.
