Information about Þorvaldseyri

Þorvaldseyri is a historic farm located beneath Iceland’s most famous volcano, Eyjafjallajökull.

The eruption in 2010 that affected so many flights seriously endangered the future of the farm, but due to the ingenuity of the owners, it now prospers due to its exhibition on Eyjafjallajökull. This exhibition reveals to visitors the reality of the challenges farmers face when the volcanoes in Iceland erupt, due to the ash and glacial floods.

Located just off the main road on Iceland’s South Coast, Þorvaldseyri is a great place to stop while admiring the many sites along this stretch. Admission for adults is just 750 ISK, and those under 12 can enter for free.
