Ytra-Áland

Ytra-Aland is located in Tistilfjord (Þistilfjord), between Torshofn (Þorshöfn) and Raufarhofn (Raufarhöfn).

From this farm there is a beautiful view to Iceland's most arctic area, and the sunset is exceptionally beautiful.
We have various walking paths close by, with wonderful view to the vicinity.
There are also very beautiful paths just few kilometers away, with rare sight at fantastic creatures of "mother nature" (Raudanes).
"Late-evening-walk" along the beach is a favorite among our guests.

The farm is very well situated for making daytrips around Tingeyjarsyslur ((Þingeyjarsyslur) Tingeyjar-county).

Among interesting places to visit are:
Langanes, Melrakkaslétta, Asbyrgi, Jokulsargljufur, Dettifoss and Myvatn.
Nearest town / village is Torshofn, about 15 minutes drive, with all common facilities like for instance swimming pool and other community services.

Raudanes peninsula

Rauðanes peninsula in Þistilfjörður is another example of exceptional natural beauty. There is a marked path which takes you along a circular route of about 7 km of easy walking. Heather moorland is the predominant type of vegetation, although there is also a fair amount of grassland. At the start of the walk, you will pass Háabjarg, a rocky outcrop 60 metres in height, whose layers of rock, built up over the centuries, are easily apparent. The extensive views from the peninsula are not to be missed.

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
