There is so little of old Iceland to see: when modern homes and materials came along, the old homes were quickly abandoned and demolished. However, the splendid turf houses at Laufas remain as fascinating example of how people lived here up until 70 years ago. We were impressed and grateful that, although the houses were officially closed for the season, the custodian opened them up especially for us, and then shared her extensive knowledge about the history of the place and the people who lived there. Well worth the short detour north of the ring road.
