Information about Reykir

Reykir is a tiny settlement in North Iceland. It is best known for its regional museum and the hot spring Biskupslaug.

The Reykir regional museum is a site of learning regarding the agriculture and fisheries of the area, and how essential they were for survival. There is a special exhibition of shark hunting, a practice which led to the creation of the Icelandic delicacy of hákarl—fermented shark.

Biskupslaug is a very small pool, but a beautiful temperature for bathing, making it an ideal stopping point for small groups travelling north Iceland. It is, however, on private property, so ask the farmer at Reykir before hopping in.

Reykir is close to the northern towns of Blönduós.
