Step back in time with this profoundly Icelandic experience starting with a scenic drive from Húsavik to the beautifully restored Turf Farm of Grenjadarstadur. In the past, Grenjadarstadur was the manor of the county, with the total area of its residential houses covering about 8,000 square feet. The houses were actually abandoned more than 50 years ago, but after a thorough restoration, were opened to the public as a charming folk museum. A visit inside the museum offers a wonderful glimpse into the past of Iceland’s traditional farming methods and living conditions. For a bit of additional local flavor, you will sample some traditional Icelandic foods. Hear tales of folk remedies and potions as your local guide, dressed in traditional costume, takes you back to a time when local herbs and plants were used to cure all manner of ills and ailments.
