About the tour

Reykholt – the name closest knit to Icelandic sagas and the most renowned writer of these – Snorri the saga writer. The most fruitful part of his life he spent in Reykholt as a wealthy chieftain – but as such also having enemies. Some structures from 10th century still remain – a rare occasion in Iceland.
