First to Review

The Touring Club of Akureyri (Ferðafélag Akureyrar, FFA), a branch of the Iceland Touring Association, was founded in 1936. The Club aims to promote and organize travelling and tours within Iceland, especially in the North.

In tours lasting more than one day, accommodation is mostly in mountain huts owned by the Touring Club of Akureyri or other similar clubs. Participants must bring their own provisions, except in the "Askja-trail" tours.

The Club owns seven huts in popular mountain areas in Northern Iceland. There are camping places by three of the huts. One such hut is Þorsteinsskáli (Thorsteinsskáli), which is located in the Herðubreiðarlindir oasis, approx. 4 km E of the beautiful Herðubreið table mountain. The hut was built in 1958-60 and sleeps 30. It has gas for cooking and kerosene stove for heating. There is a sanitary house with WC and a gas-operated shower, open during the summer months, when there are hut wardens in the area. There is a camping ground by the hut. The hut is closed during the winter months. The mountain road F88 from the ring road W of Jökulsá á Fjöllum river to the Askja caldera passes close by. You can't get better than this for modern comforts in the middle of nowhere.
