Hlidarfjall is where you should be during the colder months. It's just 14 miles from the centre of Draflastadir.

Saltfiskur (dried and salted fish) and harofiskur (jerky type fish) are recommended dishes you'll want to taste.

Why not indulge in some mondlukaka (almond cake)? This delicious dessert is perfect for sweet tooths.

You'll have a great time at Independence Day, a national celebration which takes place on the 17th of June.

All vacations must eventually end. However, the memories you made in this beautiful region will stay with you forever.
