Excellent trip and well worth the effort. Went at Xmas time, snow, ice, wind, but not too difficult to drive. Well worth the effort.

We nerded out while preparing for this trip, including immersion into the Icelandic sagas. We knew that Snorre was the author of many, and thought this would be a fun side trip. It was. We learned much more about Snorre, including his role in recording the Norse myths.

We had fun stopping here and learning more about Snorri - a great Icelandic history story. We enjoyed walking the grounds and reading the placards with great information. Be sure to see Snorri’s pool and the door to the old passage! Wish the church had been open to see inside

Iceland's greatest poet, as well as a prominent politician, Snorri's story is told at this cultural and medieval center. Includes findings from archaeological digs, original sites, reconstructions and a 19th century Lutheran church. Maybe TA will let me add pics at some point.

This was just another place to vist - but we are glad we did stop and explore the whole area. The main building is the 'Snorrastofa': the Cultural & medieval centre named for Icelandic historian Snorri Sturluson which hosts exhibits & events. We were able to wander around
