Hnjótur Farm West Fjords Iceland

Two boats side by side. Left boat cropped out of image. I was taken by the appearance of the boat crossing a sea of grass with the hills in the background providing the impression of a large swell.

"At the farm Hnjotur, en route to Breidavik, there is an unique, privately operated aeronautical and folk museum."

" The late farmer of the farm Hnjotur, Egill Olafsson († October 25th 1999) spent a large portion of his life collecting various items and articles of local and national historical importance for his museum. His interest and emphasis was for many reasons oriented towards the aviation history of the country. This museum is among the most interesting in the country and well worth visiting. The museum also has very interesting setups from local history. "http://www.hnjoturtravel.is/attraction.html


Unfortunately we were passing this museum at a time where it was not open so could only admire some of the artefacts surrounding the buildings.
