Laugafell hut is located on the high plateau of North Iceland. The old hut was built in 1948-50 and the sanitary house with sleeping accommodation were built in 1994-98. The accommodation in the huts is a sleeping bag accommodation. Guests must bring their own sleeping bags.
The houses are heated all year round with geothermally hot water. There is a warden at Laugafell in July, August and the beginning of September. The huts are locked in the winter but the toilets and changing facilities are open all year round.
As the Icelandic highland is only open from the beginning of July until the middle of September, it defines the time you can visit Laugafell. If you are driving north on F26 Sprengisandsleið, you need to take a turn west on the mountain road F752 and follow that road. If you are in the northern part of Iceland, you drive from Akureyri south on F821 up to the Highland and the road will take you to Laugafell.
