Anna and Thorolfur (Þórólfur) are farmers at Hjaltastadir (Hjaltastaðir) in Skagafjordur (Skagafjörður) and they keep horses, cattle, sheep, chickens, a dog and two cats. They also have a Gallery at their farm with high quality leather products and Anna offers courses in leather sewing for smaller groups. Their main interests revolve around horse riding, singing and social activities. Hjaltastadir is a farm located in the heart of Skagafjörður only 12 km away from the village Varmahlid (Varmahlíð) and 30 km from the town Saudarkrokur (Sauðárkrókur). At Hjaltastadir there is a great view of the surrounding area, mountains, river and farms. The area offers a great stillness, beautiful sunset in the summer and great view of the northern lights in the winter time. The house was Thorolfur's parents house that has now been renovated and use in accommodation. The farm is located in the heart of Skagafjörður with a great view and hiking trails around the entire area, everything from hiking mountains to a walk by the river, very peaceful and beautiful.

Víðimýrarkirkja church

Víðimýrarkirkja church is one of the few preserved turf churches in Iceland. At the beginning of the 20th century its fate was uncertain, but luckily the immense cultural value of the building was recognised in time, and the National Museum of Iceland became responsible for its renovation. The church was built in 1834 and has turf walls, but timber gables both back and front.
