Laufas Farmhouse (outside Akureyri) - March 2014

Hi,

this place looks interesting for a stop when driving from Myvatn to Akureyri

touristlink.com/iceland/…overview.html

Question:

1) is it open on 28 March when we will be driving through the area?

2) if it's not open, is it possible to view it from outside or walk around the grounds?

3) i presume this is the detour i have to take http://goo.gl/maps/AlbCV . Are the detour roads passable and good to use in winter?

Thank you.

Yes, you can walk the grounds and have a look.

I suggest Skógar museum instead, when on the south coast: http://www.skogasafn.is/en Open all year around.

I see. Thank you and much gratitude for your pointers as usual, Icelandicguide

Yes, we do plan to go to the Skogar museum. I presume this is similar to Laufas then.

In that case we may skip if lack of time.

Loved Skogar, look out for the 'curator,' he is sometimes there. He will be the distinquished 'gentleman' in a suit, hat, and tie. His shoes will be polished. Can't miss him, a man of great joy, a small man, and with a mind and heart as big as a house.
