Guest houses, farmhouse accommodation and small cottages are to be found all over. Then there are also some good camping sites in the South, often in connection with diverse services. 

In the mountains there are several places offering everything from sleeping bag accommodation to luxurious hotel rooms. Also there are in several places traditional mountain huts where sleeping bag accommodation is to be had. There are restaurants of various kinds, many of which offer traditional seasonal treats such as Thorri buffets (mid-January festival); game and Christmas buffets where guests and visitors are really pampered with food and drink.
