Bustarfell is a farm, situated at the foot of a
synonymous mountain in the Hofsa Valley in the Vopnafjord County in
Eastern Iceland. Road # 85 passes Burstafell on the way to or fro the
fishing village Vopnafjord.
On top of the mountain is
Thuridarvatn. The farmland is rather large, somewhat wooded, and
inviolate. The same family has lived there since 1532. One of the
best-preserved sod houses of the country are still standing at
Bustarfell. The oldest part of the farmhouses was built in 1770. These
houses were occupied until 1966.
