Icelandic emigrants leaving Iceland
for USA & Canada after Askja 1875 eruption

Hofsos is a small, friendly village on the eastern shores of  the Skagafjordur Bay and one of the oldest trading posts in Iceland. Trading commenced here over four centuries ago and remainders from this long period of trading can be seen in "Pakkhusid" (the Warehouse), which was built in 1772, close to the end of the Danish trade  monopoly (1785) and has since been restored. The regional folk museum at Hofsos focuses on the mass emigration from Iceland to North America in the late 19th and the early 20th centuries. It is save to say, that the entire village has been renovated, old buildings restored, some of which house old style restaurants. A place worth a visit for those who seek tranquillity in beautiful surroundings.  The distance from Reykjavik: 345 km by the Whale Bay tunnel.
