The ancient estate Reykholar, was the domicile of a few of the most renowned people of
the country. The property offered,
and still offers, many benefits, such as the Eider colonies on
the coastline and 300 small
islands off the coast, the rich fishing grounds in the bay and good grain
crops when the climate was warmer in the past.
The natural bathing
pool, Grettislaug, reminds us of the Saga of Grettir, one of many
Sagas touching this part of the country.
Reykholar is the property of the state and the location of a
sea weed factory, which
harvests the shallows of the Breidafjordur bay.
The distance from the capital by the
Whale Bay tunnel is 234 km.
