Strandir is one of the most remote parts of Iceland. It is a wild and rugged place that includes low hills and high mountains, and its coastline stretches across the eastern part of the Westfjords. Hólmavík is the largest town in the area, with 375 inhabitants. The town has a long history of witchcraft and witch-hunting, and is home to The Museum of Sorcery & Witchcraft. For a less supernatural but no less magical experience, visitors can feed lambs milk from a bottle at The Sheep Farming Museum. There’s also a golf course on the outskirts of town and a spa complex with a swimming pool. Hólmavík hosts Hamingjudagar (Happy Days), a family friendly festival, in the first week of July and the Turtle film fest in August. The region is a hiker’s paradise, offering both short trails for the beginner as well as more challenging ones. Other outdoor activities include kayaking, camping, and horseback riding.
