In the northern part of Iceland is Skagafjordur where you should take some time to explore and get inspired by the nature, the power of the rivers, and the silence in the mountain.

The history is everywhere you go in Skagafjördur , Hólar in Hjaltadalur have extensive history as Bishop centre in 7 centuries, the years 1106 to 1798. School was long at the same time Bishop Center. On Hólar were 36 bishops, 23 before and 13 after the Reformation. The most respectable bishops is likely Mr. Guðbrandur Þorláksson (1541-1627), high qualified and intelligent man likely most known for his reputation for printing, writing and translation.

Viking time

In the middle age  did happens in the area many fights on the Viking time Örligstada fight was 21. August 1238, Haugsnes fighting was 19.apríl 1246 where 100 people where kill and there was 1300 people fighting, it is the largest fight in Iceland history. You can go to see the fighting place and it have been build up memory stones on the place.

It have  been a lot of work to lay trails and put up marking on this historical places (Sturlungaöld) and all Saturdays during the summer will be guided tours.
