Did some "turbo-touristing" right before checking in for departure. An interesting stop that allows outsider to have a gander at what was once a way of life for Icelanders. Almost seems like a world away. Oh... I'm pretty sure I saw puffins take off.

If in the Keflavik area or near Viking World, I would recommend taking a few minutes to walk around Stekkjarkot. Like others mentioned, I came here, and it was pretty empty with nothing going on. But it was fun to walk around and take pictures...More

Went to peek at these houses after Viking World, and like others have mentioned, they were locked up. Took a photo out front, but nothing to see and faaaarr too cold and windy to look around.

I wandered over here after visiting Viking World and learned a bit more about the history of Iceland. The houses were not open, but I was able to peek into the windows. Nice place to relax too.

Stekkjarkot is close to Viking World and there are small fishermen houses more than 100 years old. Sadly the houses were closed when we went.

Stekkjarkot is located next to the Viking World so don't miss it if you're there. There are a few old houses with moss on top and even a small farm to see. Unfortunately, the houses were not opened, but it was good enough to see...More

Small fishermen houses which were used more than 100 years ago, with moss on roofs. Nice to see inside, but were closed at that moment. Good to see, when visiting Viking world museum (very closed). In summer time, there are a small zoo.

Im sure that this jolly little settlement, in original Icelandic style, would have been very interesting, had it been open. Situated very close to Viking World museum, it gave a great insight to life over 150 years ago. As I had visited the main attraction...More
