The valley of Mosfellsdalur is a lush and scenic lowland that, despite sitting very close to the capital, is often forgotten by the locals. The picturesque valley is the perfect countryside getaway, where travellers can enjoy golfing, horse riding, sightseeing or hiking.

Mosfellsdalur Viking Village

Additionally, a Viking Village is currently set to be constructed in Mosfellsdalur. The museum will include twenty reconstructed Viking Age buildings, as well as a farmstead, church and temple. The village will give visitors a glimpse into Iceland’s past. The project is being handled by the company Stórsaga.
