Other things to note
When in Skrida, it is easy to go to the very nice swimming pool in Dalvik where locals meet regularly. The village also has a supermarket, a wine shop, a pharmacy and a health center and some restaurants as well as the culture house Berg. The museum in Dalvik is worth visiting, not to mention the whale watching facilities. Also, for those interested in horse-riding, there is a very good facility near Dalvik.

We are Gudrun and Helgi, a retired Icelandic couple, medical doctors, living in Reykjavik. Helgi´s mother´s family comes from the valley Svarfaðardalur. We have renovated an old farmhouse, Gröf, in the valley, where we often enjoy our holidays. The house we are renting out on Airbnb, Skrida, is on the land belonging to the farm. We have five children and 12 grandchildren and all of us love the valley, enjoying it all year round. We have enjoyed hiking, skiing, swimming and horse-riding there. We are forest farmers and have already planted many different trees on our land that are growing slowly. We both enjoy reading, the theatre and classical music and have led an active enjoyable life.
