Þakgil is located in a beautiful valley, surrounded by mountains, 20 km from Vík by road 214. These conditions make the weather in Þakgil very mild and calm, and a lovely little freshwater stream trickles though the camping site and in front of the houses. The common dining room is in a cave that can be lit up by candles and heated by a fireplace in cold evenings. Hiking routes to interesting places of variable difficulty are all around, including to the glacier.
