Winter service

Although the campsite is open all year round, the winter service at Hamrar is  based on a very limited presence of wardens between October 15th and May 15th. At this time of the year, however, all general services are available, e.g. access to toilets, showers, kitchen and electricity. You should contact the camp warden before or upon arrival at Hamrar. Information about phone numbers can be found here on the page under contact and on information boards at Hamrar. Due to the weather and snow, it may be difficult to get to the site and snow removal to the area is not a priority, but it is cleared as soon as possible. At this time of year, camping areas are often wet or full of snow, so it is assumed that people park their motorhomes and caravans in the parking lots.

The campsite

The camping area is divided into 16 camping areas with vegetation belts in between. The surfaces all have names, but their numbers are most often used. The area is roughly divided into three smaller areas of similar size. Tent areas 1 to 6 together with the barn, the entrance and the service house at Hamrar 2 form one area. In the center of it is a service building with toilets and showers. That house is called Bóndi.

Another area has pitches 7 to 11 and there is a house in the middle with toilets and showers. There is also a toilet and shower  with access for the disabled. This house is called Kerling. The third area includes pitches 12 to 16 and the service house Krummi serves them. As in the other buildings, there are good sanitary facilities with toilets and showers, and a toilet and shower  with access for the disabled.
