HOW TO GET THERE
The Route from Reykjavík to basecamp
Follow Route 1 out of Reykjavik to the north, ca. 73 km in the direction of Borgarnes. Exit Route 1 and turn right to Route 50, just before entering the bridge over Borgarfjörður. Follow Route 50 for ca. 33 km, drive through the village of Kleppjárnsreykir, cross the river Reykjadalsá where the route number changes to 518, and continue for another 29 km. And you have arrived in Húsafell. ( N64 41.950 W20 52.118)
To reach basecamp follow Route 518 to the river Hvitá, then turn right and follow Route 550 until you make a left turn to Route 551 over the river Geitá and to the glacier base camp (N64 39.014 W20 34.962).
Remember that the road from Husafell is a summer road. Do not try to drive up there after September 30th.
This road is accessible for most cars during summer time but we recommend using the shuttle service unless you have a 4x4 car.
It takes approx 25-30 minutes to drive from Husafell to base camp. Please be there at least 15 minutes before the tour starts. You will see signs pointing to Into the Glacier and you will also notice our cabin when you get close to the glacier
