Mosskógar in Mosfellsdalur is an ecological vegetable farm which also produces and sells trees and has some surprises: There is a tent hotel, with among other things, a four-man tent from Khazakhstan which can be rented.
Every Saturday a vegetable market is open at Mosskógar from 12:00 to 16:00. All kinds of outdoor vegetables are for sale, all ecologically grown, carrots, salad, cabbage, onions etc. There are also many different varieties of tree plants. The market has been open since 10th of July this summer and it is open on Saturdays for the rest of the summer. Camping
Besides the vegetable market, Jón, the owner, has organised camping on Mosskógar. The camp site is in a grove of trees, sheltered from the wind so it is calm. There is fresh water and toilets at the camping site. Close by there are a variety of tourist services. You can go horse riding, go to see the Halldór Laxness museum at Gljúfrasteinn and there is a golf course open to the public. Campers can also go to the swimming pool in Mosfellsbær for a swim and to lie in the ever-popular hot tubs by the pool.The Kazakh tent
There is a tent hotel, where you can rent two kinds of tents, a four-person Kazakh tent or ‘yurt’, or a conventional Icelandic one. This is certainly something of a rarity in Iceland. Mosskógar is easily found, 4 km. from Mosfellsbær on the way to Þingvellir. It is clearly marked with a sign on the road to Þingvellir. Mosskogar, Mosfellsdal. Tel: 566 8121
