Skógar

Beautiful natural surroundings, summer accommodation facilities and one of the finest folk museums in Iceland, with an outstanding collection of old farm implements and household articles in a new exhibition building and turf-built houses. Skógafoss waterfall, 60 m high, is one of the most impressive in the country and the final in a series of 20 on Skógaá river from its source at Fimmvörðuháls on the mountains overlooking the area. According to legend, the first settler at Skógar, Þrasi, hid a chest of treasure in a cave beneath it.
