Reykholt holidays

Reykholt is most famous as the home of the Icelandic poet and Saga’s author Snorri Sturluson whose homestead was in the village. The remains of his home have been excavated with certain parts open to visitors. The geothermally heated bath Snorri used to use is still working today, while a library in the village showcases some of Snorri’s works. The waterfalls of Hraunfossar and Barnafoss are also only a short drive from the village, as are the hot springs at Deildartunguhver, known for being the most powerful in Europe. All opening times are subject to seasonal variations.
