Quiet isolation and magnificent scenery make the “Strandir” area among the most attractive places in the country. Here you can hear the real sound of nature. Just you, the birds, the roaring ocean blended with the soothing sound of the many waterfalls and rivers.
Strandir is an area with an exciting and tragic history of witchcraft, witch-hunting and sorcery which makes this a tour into the mystical world of the supernatural.
We start early and drive from Reykjavik to the small town of Hólmavík which is the largest settlement in Strandir and serves as a centre of commerce for the county. Here you also find the museum of Icelandic Sorcery and Witchcraft.
From Hólmavík we drive along the coastline of Steingrimsfjörður where we frequently see the majestic Humpback Whales at play in the fjord.
The Sorcerer´s cottage is a place where you can get to know the life of locals during the 17th century. You can easily understand why the people turned to sorcery to make lives easier.
Some 70 kilometres from Hólmavík we arrive to the magical, ghostlike village of Djúpavík. Hundreds of people lived here in the golden “herring” age. The abandoned factory along with the rusted remains of Ms. Suðurland bring you back in time and give you an idea of how remote this place truly is.
Just north of Djúpavík we will dip our toes in what can arguably be named as one of the most remote man-made swimming pools in the world, Krossneslaug. Here you can relax in the comfortably warm pool while watching the roaring waves of the North Atlantic. A truly sensational experience.
