Tucked away by the Skagafjordur bay in North Iceland lies the scenic village of Varmahlíð. It is surrounded by the woodlands of Reykjarhóll, where clearly marked trails make for invigorating hikes to the top of the hill. On a clear day, the breathtaking views from the summit can extend all the way across the central region of Skagafjörður. Horse farms, the Icelandic Horse History Center and riding tours are available for those who’d like to truly understand the significance of the endemic animal in this region. The Skagafjörður Transportation Museum offers a more leisurely perspective, as well as the Glaumbær Farm & Museum that showcases traditional turf farm life. The historic Víðimýrarkirkja Church dates back to 1834 and is one of the last few turf churches in Iceland. There are heated public swimming pools in the village where you can unwind after a day outdoors. Make the most of long evenings with a drink at a local pub before you are ready to enjoy simple but hearty Icelandic fare.
