If you’re looking for a family-friendly destination that offers a perfect blend of historical and cultural attractions, wildlife, and nature, then Dalir is the place to be.

It’s an excellent retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life, where you can unwind, enjoy the outdoors, explore and learn. With records dating back to the 9th and 10th centuries, Dalir is a historically rich part of Iceland and is rightly considered a stepping-stone to the New World. Eiríksstaðir, where Eirík the Red, who pioneered the settlement of Greenland, lived, is located in Haukadalur Valley. Leif the Lucky, his son, was born here, and a replica of his birthplace has been built based on the ruins of Eirík’s farmhouse. The breathtaking nature is perfect for hiking and horse riding excursions, making it an ideal destination for nature lovers.
