What to do?

To most Icelanders the Strandir region is wrapped in an aura of mystery. According to lore it is not only home to ghosts, elves and trolls but witchcraft was also rampant here. In Hólmavík village (25 km) you can visit the Museum of Icelandic Sorcery and Witchcraft that attracts a number of visitors each year. The Sorcerer´s Cottage located next door to Hótel Laugarhóll, a turf cottage, modeled after the dwellings of the common people in the 17th century, and a part of the Museum in Hólmavík, is also worth visiting.
