Stöng í Þjórsárdal

Stöng is a farm that was likely buried by the volcanic ash from the Hekla volcano in 1104. After a long 835 years, the farm was discovered in 1939 during an archaeological excavation. If you would like a more accurate idea of what such farms used to look like, you can visit the nearby Þjóðveldisbærinn Stöng, a replica of historical buildings constructed using the traditional methods as closely as possible.

Stöng in Þjórsárdalur is located in the Gjáin valley area in southwest Iceland along Route 327. If you are traveling from the southwest, the road can be navigated with a small 2WD car.
