Hidden away in West Iceland, the Dalabyggð region was the starting point for one of the most exciting chapters in the history of mankind:
The Viking Age expansion continued westward from Iceland and took explorers first to Greenland and later to the shores of North America.

Visitors are welcomed by guides wearing typical Viking Age clothing and gear. Our guides are well versed in the history of the farm, its inhabitants and the Viking Age. Tours are on-going throughout each day, and we welcome your arrival!
