The hamlet of Keldur is very small, quaint and worth a quick stop. The old structures are interesting. There is little in the way of visitor information, so read up.

We were only able to walk around as it was closed for the season. Interesting buildings just like in a fairy tale.

We went just after high season and it was closed. We walked around a bit but it's set up so you really can't see the sodded houses unless it's open. Bummer. GETTING there. Note we were coming from Reykjavik so we took first left onto...More

They were closed for the season so we couldn't go inside, but the gate was open and so we were able to walk around the grounds. Very cute houses, interesting cultural site. While I wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to see it, it's...More

We drove several miles to see Keldur. We got to see the roof tops. it has a gate around it. Needs to be opened later for tourist would be nice. Not sure it would be worth the drive from Hwy 1.

This place is worth the trip off the beaten path. People have been living like this here since 1000 years ago, and you can see why with that cranking spring. I tried to image winter here, living in the sod house. It makes you realize...More

As of June 2017, the opening hours are 10-6, June 1-August 31, and the fee is 1200 ISK. Sadly, we didn't get to see anything as we arrived too late. Not sure if I would have paid $24 for us both to see it. 🙁

We found this place accidentally on our way back from the south coast of Iceland. It requires a 20 min diversion from the ring road and it is not the most comfortable journey by car. However once you arrive you'll find a quaint little village...More
