History Museum
“Awesome museum, a wonderland for people who are into all things Viking. They have a buffet breakfast too and it is included in the price of one of the tickets I think.. beautiful location as with everything in Iceland and good food, Good exhibits, they have various things you can buy too and plenty of history. They let you play traditional games with instructions, you can wear the traditional garb and click pics.. well worth the visit. Approx 5 km. from Little White Castle.”

Rental Car Location
“If you are traveling in the countryside, some of our friends have rented from Happy Campers and have had great experiences. This might be more comfortable than tenting as weather can be unpredictable.”

Meal Takeaway
“It's a van parked on the parking lot close to the supermarket Bónus and gasstation orkan in Njarðvík. I always get fish with french fries and it cost 1500kr. A very good meal, you have to try it ! But the only option is take away”
