Flóahreppur

Peaceful environment, historic areas and beautiful nature. Agriculture is the main trade along with increasing tourism services. The culture has a long history and consists of handymen and traders. The community offers many occasions for social gatherings, i.e. the women council and a youth organization. Here is the great waterfall Urridafoss in the mighty Thjorsa-river and greatest lava flow on Earth since Ice-age: The Thjorsa-lava. Scenery is exceptionally wide; a ring of mountains, glaciers and islands. This is the location to many historic places from the Floamanna-Saga, and the paradise of naturalists and bird-watchers.
