“Handcrafted products from the heart of Vesturland”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

Ljómalind is a farmer's market selling different handcrafted products from Vesturland and from the rest of Iceland. The stunning quality of the products is their main trademark. If you are planning to find something different from the typical souvenirs, this is your place.

The materials used are very traditional, pure Icelandic sheep wool, angora, wood, fish leather... and the best natural ingredients for the different food options you can also find inside. There is also some of the typical knitted designs for Icelandic clothing, sweaters, gloves, hats and many other original complements.

Ljómalind is situated in Borgarnes, very close to some of the best breathtaking landscapes of Iceland. It is definitely a must-see in this small town that will captivate you with its charming atmosphere.
