This is one of the most historic sites in Iceland and you understand how such a significant literary work (the Eddas) gives Iceland great significance. By taking the time to tour the museum, walk the grounds, view the immense landscape and appreciate its location, you...More

This is a moderately interesting stop, but if you are not familiar with Snorri and the Icelandic medieval poets, then this place won't mean much to you.

We visited on our day trip from Reykjavik. We were hoping to get to hang out in the pool a bit but read it wasn't allowed. The church, pool and view of the lawn is very beautiful. We didn't see much in Iceland that wasn't...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this small hamlet. Our guide had told us about Snorri and the sagas. We saw Snorri's pool and tunnel and the lovely church. Did not visit the museum. Picturesque setting. Not crowded. Beautiful countryside. Take time to stop here...More

Out of my personal interest in the Norse mythology I convinced my travelbuddy to make the detour to Reykholt to visit Snorrastofa. For me (and also for my travelbuddy) the visit was disappointing. The pool is just a pool and the location is not very...More

Reykholt is a small village which could be easily overlooked. However, it was once an important town, not least because Snorri, one of Iceland's most prominent and important figures of the Middle Ages, lived here. The museum is located in the basement of the village's...More

We loved our visit here. Sigrun, the woman who runs the museum really made Snorri and the Eddas come alive for us. She gave us a lot of in depth information which really helped my son with his home school history project about the Vikings...More

Plan to start early and spend time reviewing the displays. If you are really into the Snorri Sturluson Sagas, try to arrange a lecture from Gunnar Thor Bjarnason, historian. Very knowledgeable! Time your visit before lunch and ask about the doughnuts! There is a good...More
