There is a lot of local geological information in the centre itself as well as providing good tourist information about the local area. Well worth stopping at and finding out any thing you need to know as well as learning something about the region.

Our Icelandic Guide Oli Schram, took us here and we really enjoyed the educational aspect of the Center. We learned a great deal and we also were looking for some maps that they gave to us. Extremely friendly and great Water Closets!

This is a very well presented visitor centre providing all the information you need to explore the area as well as an informative exhibition at the centre. Just a short walk from the centre is Skriduklaustur- a cloister from the middle ages and a museum; the former home of the Icelandic writer Gunner Gunnerson.
