  • Small church with an original cemetery next door. Graves shaped in the form of grass-covered hooves. Freshly-cut grass and a scent of hay add charm and peace of mind. The place is located 4 minutes from the main road and it is worth to go here.

  • It's worth taking the small detour from Ring Road to visit Hof with its peat-roofed church and cemetery with graves covered in green grass.

  • Beautiful little turf church not far away from the Ring Road 1, it is 1 of the 6 old turf churches remaining. Those mounds behind the church that look like big tussocks, are actually the graves in the cemetery. So, try to be respectful and only walk on the designated walking path. The parking next to the church can accommodate about 6 cars.
  • Lovely little church with traditional turf roof, easily accessible from the ring road. Certainly worth the small detour. One of only 6 icelandic turf churches still standing.
