Hallormsstaður

Iceland's largest forest!

The Hallormsstadur forest is the largest forest in the country (2,300 hectares) and a fascinating site of scientific research. Scientists are trying to see what type of trees cope best with the Icelandic climate and more than forty varieties from many countries have been planted in the sheltered area of Hallormsstaður.

The forestry project is hoping to show that Iceland can produce commercial timber and once more grow tall trees like those that were wiped out by the Ice Age. If you like exploring the great outdoors there are lots of leisurely walks in the woods or you can rent horses for short tours around the area. At the Atlavík creek, there’s some great camping too. Families gather during weekends and holidays for a variety of summer festivities.

From Atlavík, there’s a ferry, Lagarfljótsormurinn, that sails every night during the summer season.
