ICELAND: Visiting a Viking Village

This Viking Village was created for a film, which was never made. You can find it near Vestrahorn - or Batman Mountain - in Hofn (East Iceland). You can access this village after paying a small fee at the Viking Cafe, which also grants you access to the nearby black sand beach. 

This village was clearly created with attention to detail, and at our visit (2016) was still in excellent shape! It almost looks lost in time. Its an interesting stop along the way and worth the walk if these types of sites interest you at all. It's small, but you are free to explore it as you wish. As far as we are aware, it still sits there waiting to be utilized for a different film. 

This is part of a series of posts about our trip to Iceland.

  1. What an amazing place! I am hoping to visit Iceland in the near future. The landscape looks so incredible!

    1. It's worth a trip! There is so much so close to Reykjavik. I'd love to go back someday and see the northern lights.
