Probably a few most crowded and most vibrant days on the island during the whole year are those of the Thjodhatid camping festival. It lasts for few days and there are events prepared for every night of the festival.

For example, there is one night when people are supposed to hook-up with each other. So, why not join in? The torches are lit up, the music is playing, and people are singing, dancing and drinking. Media sometimes exaggerate when it comes to this festival, giving it a bad reputation, but the festival is secured by police and there is no place for dilemmas about attending it.
