This stunning region is home to around 100 amiable locals, joined by tourists seeking to bask in the picturesque surroundings, hike the top-notch trails, and enjoy the annual summer music festival, which draws Icelanders from far and wide.
Additionally, the area hosts birdlife for a few months each year and even houses a royal elf community. Interestingly, you can explore the central hill called Álfaborg, which translates to the ‘Elves’ Castle,’ rumoured to be the residence of the Icelandic elf queen and her court.
