We went to this place two days after each other & it was never open. Very disappointed as there isn’t that much to do in Iceland. Many other people were parking & walking to it only to be let down.

This is a fun little area to stop and take some good pictures and see some interesting sculptures. The area is small but lots to see. So glad we stopped.

Stunning, cosy, warm, quaint and friendly place with reasonable prices, good breakfast. Best place to stay when you'll stay in Iceland just for the 'golden circle' and south-west- tour.

The building are built in Viking-style, as part of a hotel and restaurant. It's nice, but rather expensive (a small room will cost most than $200). It's located right on the bay, great view. Nice staff, good service. Clean!

A few recreations of viking type builings housing a hotel and cafe. OK to stop for 5 minutes to take photos then move on.

A nice setting but rather expensive meal. The aquaria above the counter are a little bit odd in a viking setting.
