Get to know the culture of the North

Within Skagafjörður is the folk museum at Glaumbær, situated in an old traditional turf farmhouse dating back to 1750. The museum explores life in historic rural Iceland and also commemorates the lives of Þorfinnur Karlsefni and his wife Guðríður. In the 11th century, the couple travelled to North America and Guðríður gave birth to what is believed to be the first European child born in North America
