Part of the Icelandic Museum of Witchcraft and Sorcery (the rest of which can be found in the nearby town of Holmavik), this is a fascinating historic turf house with authentic staves carved into the woodwork and stone, revealing how a 17th Century Icelander with a passion for magic lived.

It is halfway between Reykjavik and the capital of the region, Isafjordur.
