Hvolsvöllur is a small town of 950 people in south Iceland, conveniently located by the ring road. The local airport has flights to the Westman Islands.

Economy and transport

Hvolsvöllur’s main economy is services to the surrounding agricultural area, which has an additional 600 people, meat processing and tourism. 

Museum

The area features prominently in one of the most famous Icelandic sagas, Njál’s saga. There is indeed an excellent Icelandic Saga Centre in the town that we recommend checking out. It has two exhibitions, ‘The exhibition of Njála, introducing guests to the characters of the sagas along with the Viking cosmology and the literary art and one on the history of trade, commerce and the cooperative movement in the 20th century. You can also view a model of Alþingi, Iceland’s parliament, founded at Þingvellir in 930. There is also a nice gallery there and a good restaurant in the Saga Hall, a replica of a medieval longhouse.

Nearby attractions

Hvolsvöllur has a number of interesting hiking routes in its vicinity. Among interesting sights is the large and peculiar rock Drangurinn by the farm Drangshlíð, under the Eyjafjöll mountains. Hvolsvöllur is also a short drive from many other interesting attractions, among them some of Iceland’s top ones. One of Iceland’s oldest swimming pools, Seljavallalaug, is about 44 km from the town. At a 14 km distance is the rural area of Fljótshlíð and the farm Hlíðarendi. According to Njal's Saga, its hero, Gunnar, lived there.

There is good trout and salmon fishing in the nearby rivers. Several interesting caves, both natural and man-made are in driving distance from Hvolsvöllur, 18-40 km. There is also a number of beautiful waterfalls not far off, the most well known being Seljalandsfoss, which you can walk behind, and Skógafoss, one of Iceland’s highest and most beautiful falls. Forests and groves can be found no further than  9-18 km from Hvolsvöllur.
