  • Small church with an original cemetery next door. Graves shaped in the form of grass-covered hooves. Freshly-cut grass and a scent of hay add charm and peace of mind. The place is located 4 minutes from the main road and it is worth to go here.

  • It's worth taking the small detour from Ring Road to visit Hof with its peat-roofed church and cemetery with graves covered in green grass.

  • Only down point of this place is that you can't go inside the church, otherwise it's totally worse coming to have a look!  more »

  • Beautiful little turf church not far away from the Ring Road 1, it is 1 of the 6 old turf churches remaining. Those mounds behind the church that look like big tussocks, are actually the graves in the cemetery. So, try to be respectful and only walk on the designated walking path. The parking next to the church can accommodate about 6 cars.
  • Lovely little church with traditional turf roof, easily accessible from the ring road. Certainly worth the small detour. One of only 6 icelandic turf churches still standing.
  • Nice church, but thats all it really is. It's a cool place to stop if you are just passing, but don't make the trip all the way to Hof solely for the church.
  • Very nice and you can find just 6 of these church in Iceland
  • Nice place with nice guides. Not touristic that much and absolutely pretty
