We will be delaying the campsite opening due to construction, we hope to be open on the 1st of June 2021. We apologize for the inconvenience.
The staff and guests of Lava Hostel and Hafnarfjörður campsite are excited for the weekend ahead. On Friday the 17th of June there will be a big celebration in our town, as well as the whole country. Since the year 1944, Iceland has celebrated it´s independents day on the 17th of June. We recommend your plan on Friday to be a helium balloon in one hand and a cotton candy in the other and the song “Hæ, hó jibbí jey, jibbí jey, það er kominn sautjándi júní” coming from your lips. In a very basic translation it means. “whoop whoop, it´s the 17th of june!”. We are not only celebrating our national day this weekend. There will be a big Viking Festival in our town, you can see all about the events schedule here . In our opinion the festival is not something to be missed.
