Not sure why this has such bad reviews, it was worth a visit. Yes it's 800 isk to go in, but that's perfectly validated due to road upkeep, and we have probably paid much larger amounts for one of icelands many 'museums'..if you don't go...More

I don't know why the Viking Film Set gets bad reviews? For $8 per person you walk to the film set. It's in a beautiful cove with horses running free. The set itself has wear & tear but still fun to investigate all it's nook...More

800 isk to drive into nothing. Don't do if foggy, can't see the mountains whatsoever. Seems like an unethical rip off.

850 ISK for most coffees or a hot chocolate. 800 ISK to walk or drive around the property - much better value than the hot drink. The Viking village is in a poor state and could do with some major renovations. The best part is...More

There were spectacular views behind the Viking set and by the beach but it's not worth the price. The waffle was pretty good but the coffee was at best, mediocre. Service wasn't great either. It was a cute place but not sure it was worth...More
