About Hvolsvollur

The small town Hvolsvollur, one of the few inland located towns, started developing in the thirties, when most of the streams and rivers in the Southwestern Lowlands had been bridged. The inhabitants base their livelihood mainly on services rendered to the agricultural surroundings, the meat processing for the domestic market and tourism.

The town is situated in one of the most important Saga regions of the country, with some of the main stages of the renowned Njal’s Saga. Those who are interested in the Icelandic Sagas should not miss visiting the Njala Centre in town. Salmon and trout fishing in the nearby, prolific rivers is very rewarding.

Bus company´s offers daily tours to Thorsmork in summer, Saga tours in the area and scheduled services to the capital.
