The Vallakot Farm team

Vallakot is a family-owned farm. Jóhanna and Rúnar have had the farm since they took over from Rúnars parents, 30 years ago. Now their children, Arnþór and Indíana, are emerging into the business at the farm along with their partners, Aldey, and Ingólfur Örn.

At our farm, we grow vegetables and run a small guesthouse on our land. The vegetable season in Iceland is short, we harvest from July until winter comes. We have some animals at the farm, sheep, chickens, and also three lovely dogs.

Talk to us if you are interested in buying some vegetables from our farm or visiting our animals.

Nicknamed by one local as ‘The Beauty’ in comparison to ‘The Beast’ of Dettifoss, the name Goðafoss could be translated roughly as The Waterfall of The Gods. An impressive site any time of year, in late spring, if you can catch it while there’s still icicles bedecking its sides, it’s a particularly otherworldly place to visit.

A gigantic, anomalous, horseshoe-shaped rock formation, Ásbyrgi stands guard next to the northern entrance to the 35km Jokulsa Canyon. With geological wonders such as Hljóðaklettar inside, the Jokulsá Canyon forms one of the most admired walking destinations in the country.
Inside Ásbyrgi there are anything from 30 minute to 7 hour hiking trails.  Walk across the canyon floor and enjoy the honeycombed basalt rocks, or traverse the cliffs and marvel at the sheer scale of the rock formation itself. The most adventurous routes involve both, clambering up cliff passages on a series of ropes.
