The valley located in the Árnessýsla county is right at the edge of the Icelandic highlands. Some of its major landmarks are "Þjóðveldisbærinn Stöng", the waterfalls hjálparfoss and háifoss as well as the small valley Gjáin.
Nearby you also the ever threatening volcano Hekla, one of Iceland's most active volcanoes.
Þjóðveldisbærinn Stöng is a place you may recognize without knowing where you saw it. It served as scenery in the popular TV show "game of Thrones" where it served as a village during a "wildling" attack. So if you love the show and are on your way to Landmannalaugar we recommend to add this stop and relive the iconic scene.
