Are you a member of FÍ Yes No

The Hvanngil hut is operated by Ferðafélag Íslands (The Iceland Touring Association, FÍ) and accommodates 60 people in four rooms.

The hut is on two floors. On the ground floor there is a big entrance, a small kitchen and two dormitories with double bunk beds and tables and chairs. The loft has two sleeping quarters with sleeping bag accommodation on mattresses. There is a small hut for the wardens close by as well as a toilet house with showers.

Further away there is a stable with kitchen facilities and a loft where 20 people can sleep. By the stable there is a toilet and a camping ground.

There is another and quite special camping ground by the main hut. The camping is more or less inside a lava field where one can find good shelter if the weather is bad.
