  • It is very nice place to study about Seal and Icelandic history.The display helps you to understand easily.  more »
  • I do not doubt that the food is of good quality and all, but you can't put some crazy prices for the fact that you are one of the few restaurants in the area. Saw the place, we decided not to spend 50 and passes euro for 3 ounces of Lamb (manco from Chaudhary) and 21 euros for a vegan dish made from sweet potatoes and grilled vegetables (potatoes?). Why we folded about burgers ... and even here ... 16 euros for a Vegan Burger?? 17 for one with meat? Absurd. The Burger wasn't bad, but really money down the drain

  • We asked on the spot whether there are ways despite rough seas to see seals. You explained to us the route and possible sighting points around the peninsula and we were lucky to see that despite bad weather. Although the road 711 was very rough, it was a pleasure to drive there.

  • Basically a store with articles for tourists visiting Iceland. Don't make a detour for it, unless you're bored and have nothing better to do. If you're looking for a store for little "souvenirs" to bring back from your trip in Iceland, you'll find a few items of interest. Restrooms (toilets, WC) available on site but quite busy.
  • Lots of neat items in the gift shop. We did not.visit the museum or take the tour due to high seas and rough conditions, however the staff were very friendly and helpful.
  • A great souviner shop and they sell beer at the front (for an affordable price) to drink during your visit. Very much enjoyed!
  • Quick stop. Museum entrance fee goes to seal research and you learn some stuff. Go for the seals!
  • Friendly people, amazing experience, hot chocolate milk and cookies on the boat.
