We had dinner reservations so we came early to tour the small village. It was pretty amazing. It's decorated in historic Icelandic Viking era. We walked around and went to the cave bar before our dinner in the restaurant

The hotel room I'm in (6) is like the room you'd find on a cruise ship. Not complaining, just be prepared some of them may be fairly smaller than what you're used to. The hotel has two buildings. The restaurant is totally decked out in Viking. No corner was cut. I initially thought the bed to be hard, BUT I... More

There were several interesting buildings and carved, wooden statues on site, as well as some goats, but it was really nothing special. I would only visit if already in the area. I will say that the scenery on the drive there was fabulous though.

A cosy and a warm place to stay with great staff with warm attitude. The best place to be to have a look into the old icelandic culture. In the restaurant you can eat almost anything from burgers to a real icelandic old food (and it's very special. I really recommend everyone to try it)

We stopped here to see the viliking village. It was small but a nice place to wander around for 10 min. I expected more, the hotel lobby was cute and they had some cabins out back. We did not stay at the hotel. I would be nice if they could expand there Viking experience so it would be worth the... More

I love this place, specially during the Viking Festival early in June, if I am not wrong. During the festival there is a market with Viking and celtic pretty things.

The viking village is in a beautiful location along the harbour. We spent about an hour walking around and exploring the area. Definitely bring your camera.
