    We had trouble finding the turnoff (214 off the Ring Road) as the address took us into Vik. But we were so glad we stuck with it! The drive alone was an adventure - it was a bit sketchy at times with our camper van...More

    The drive up to Thakgil is other-wordly. It's spectacular and jaw-dropping. After driving the F roads in the Highlands and the Latrabjarg bird cliffs, the road to Thakgil was a breeze. There are some sharp turns and some bumps but really not bad at all...More

    My husband and I camped around Iceland for 2 weeks and this was our favourite site. The road isn't that bad - and its totally worth it anyway. Bring food to bbq - use their bbq's and have dinner in the cave. Great hiking trails.

    We turned off the Ring Road on 214 and expected a bit of a drive to reach the campground. After what seemed like forever over a road that skirted the edge of cliffs with incredible views, there was a sign saying 9km to Thakgil (Pakgil)!...More

    Thakgil- it is a small eco- lodge in Vik, the south of Iceland. It is surrounded by mountains and mountain sheep. There are many cottages too. The cottages there are all the same. Including the check-in place. Many sheep come down to the cottages everyday...More

    Hey, we just sent an e-mail to Helga@thakgil.is and requested to book a cabin there. We stayed there in September 2015, not sure if the contact is the same.

    Thakgil appears to be closed, as I had a difficult time finding someone there----consider the condition of this campground before you try to book, as it is in a very sad state of repair,
