Around Vallanes there is plenty of leisure possibilities. Hengifoss is one of the area‘s most important natural treasures, one of Iceland‘s highest waterfalls but easy to reach by hiking, for Hengifoss and other places in the area see www.hengifoss.is A day tour around the lake Lagarfljót in the middle of Fljótsdalshérað could also include a visit to Snæfellstofa, the visitor centre for the Vatnajökull national park which gives a good insight into the geographics and natural cycles in the highlands www.vatnajokulsthjodgardur.is Next door is Skriðuklaustur a cultural center in the home of the writer Gunnar Gunnarsson where guests can visit the museum and have a personal, guided tour www.skriduklaustur.is . The café in Skriðuklaustur, Klausturkaffi is known for homemade local food specialities. Head further, deep into the valley you find the Wilderness centre www.wilderness.is a place demonstrating how people in Iceland have lived with nature. Plenty of outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing and horseriding are easy to find. You can head for the highlands on a paved road leading up to the Kárahnjúkar dam and further, depending on your thirst for adventure. On the way dip into the natural pools at Laugarfell, and enjoy nature by walking along many of the trails in the area www.laugarfell.is The East Iceland Fjords are many and diverse, one hour away is Borgarfjörður Eystri which is probably the best location to see a large population of puffins www.borgarfjordureystri.is Seyðisfjörður 40 minutes drive from our farm offers culture, good food and nature www.sfk.is For other fjords and interesting places you could take a look at www.fjardabyggd.is , musical events at www.havari.is and more and more............
