    Hraunfossar (Lava falls) is a collection of creeks and cascades streaming directly out of the lava. The Langjökull glacier is visable from here but the lava field we see occurs from one of the volcanos beneath the glacier. You will most definitely enjoy this sight.

    Stop At: Snorrastofa, Hálsasveitavegur, 320 Reykholt, Iceland

    Snorrastofa is a museum that was founded in the memory of Snorri Sturluson. The exhibitions is situated in one of the most historical side of Iceland named Reykholt. Snorri was an author, politician, chieftain and a poet. His most famous work is Heimskringla (Orb of the World) and Snorra Edda (Prose Edda) which is said to have inspired modern work such as Tolkine's The Lord of the Rings. It is a lot to see and read in this musem from the 13th century and it gives a good insight how life used to be back then.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Snorralaug, Reykholt, Borgarbyggd Iceland

    Snorralaug (Snorri's pool) is mentioned in Landnáma (The book of settlement)m during the 12th century. This is probably one of the oldest pool in Iceland. It is one of the first archaeological remains to be listed in Iceland in 1817. An underground passaged is visible from the pool to the farmhouse that Snorri is said to have built in his time. Not many people knew how to utilise the underground heat during the 13th century so it tells us how clever he was. The area and the pool should be treated with respect and there is no bathing in this one.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Borgarnes, Borgarnes, Borgarbyggd, West Region

    Borgarnes is 75 km from Reykjavík and lies in the middle of West Iceland. This village has a lot of activities but we recommend to stop at the Settlement Centre and learn about our first poet Egill Skallagrímsson.
