The campsite in the town of Grundarfjörður is located at the edge of town. From there you have a breathtaking view of the mountains and across the fjord. The famous Mt. Kirkjufell is also visible from the campsite. The campsite is divided into 5 different parts.
The oldest part is next to an old quarry where it is sheltered from wind. It is very popular in late summer as there are a lot of blueberries that grow all over the canyon. Another part is located on the ridge above the soccer field. It is well suited to campervans and larger trailers. The largest part of the campsite can be seen when you enter the site and is called Ferningur (the square). There are also two additional smaller areas where you can pitch your tent.
Grundarfjörður is the perfect location for people who wish to camp in one area for a few nights as it is centrally located in the middle of the northern Snæfellsnes peninsula. From here you can go on great excursions in any directions to visit the beautiful sites of the peninsula and the National Park. The swimming pool is next to the campsite and there are also nice walking and hiking trails available. You can also enjoy this beautiful place on an outdoor activity such as horseback riding, kayaking, golfing, sea angling, or bird watching by boat.
