  • This striking building, we arrived at after we had been to the Henigfoss and at the visitors center of the nature reserve. Good facilities, good roads and parking lots. It is also a museum and for the building are the remains of an ancient monastery. A clear path and view point there. But we mostly came for the food. They have 12:00 and 14:00 in the afternoon between a lunch buffet, it is also possible to order from a map. A cosy room with a large table in the middle with all kinds of dishes. Since everyone and also premises the lunch buffet chose we did this too, and it did not disappoint. A variety of hot dishes, chicken, quiche, reindeer, fish oven dish. Vegetables from the oven, salads, soup ect. Home-cooking style. They also remain pleasant so you also in many people not misgrijpt. Choose from a range of homemade cakes for dessert. Comparable in price about 30 euros p.p. and that is worth it.

  • The Museum is interesting prepared, visit also the exterior! The leadership of Darri was even in German - thank you! After the cultural enjoyment and a hike or a walk in this beautiful idyllic landscape the lunch or cake buffet (Klausturkaffi) lends itself - typical Icelandic food - get happy again :)
