Flight to Iceland

Hallormsstadur

Hallormsstaður is located at the east of the Lake called, Lögurinn.

It is the forest area which covers the site of an old manor house and church.

The government decided to set up an experimental foretry centre earlier this century.
The cradle of such experiments is the sheltered area of Hallormsstaður, including one of the most fascinating tree exhibits in Nordic lands.

Scientists are trying to see what type of trees can cope best with the Icelandic climate and more than forty varieties from many countries have been planted.

Today, the country’s largest forestry project is gradually showing that Iceland can produce commercial timber and once more grow tall trees like those who were wiped out by the isle-wide glaciers of the Ice Age.

In the area of Hallormsstaður there is a creek called Atlavík, which is a very popular camping place.

From Atlavík sails a ferry called Lagarfljótsormurinn every night during summerseason, where one can enjoy the view and have some refreshment on board.
