  • The town is extremely small, and there's not really anything to do there except visit the museum and learn about the history of the French fishermen who came in the 19th century to take Icelandic fish...  more »
  • A lot of emotion, especially for my wife, rear girl terre-neuvas... Very good re-enactment of the life of the french sailors who came fishing the cod on the coasts of Iceland... The Museum is in the former home of the Director of the Hospital (now part of a hotel). Approach to care ashore sailors ill or injured, conditions of life on the schooners (replica of an Interior), memorial film... We also visit the Chapel and the cemetery of the french sailors... French, if you go there, do not miss this visit (entry pay 1200 ISK)...
