Eiriksstadir is a turf ruin in west Iceland.

Eiriksstadir are ancient ruins in Haukadalur in Dalir county in West Iceland. The sagas mention Eiriksstadir as the abode of Eric the Red and it is estimated that this is the very same place as described there.

Eric's son Leif was brought up in Eiriksstadir. Leif landed in North America (Vinland) nearly 500 years before Columbus. Eiriksstadir also features a replica of the old farm and there you can see reconstructions of the swords, helmets and tools used by the Vikings.
