Directions to Museum of Icelandic Sorcery and Witchcraft

This is an interesting, fun and fascinating museum, situated in the small and quiet village of Hólmavík in the Westfjords of Iceland. The museum compiles historical facts about witchcraft in Iceland during the 17th century, where a period of 50 years connected Icelandic folklore to magic and sorcery, which now plays a big role in the history of Iceland. This museum gives a real insight into how important witchcraft and wizardry is into the sagas and myths that Iceland still treasures today.

Guides are available in the museum in several languages, including English, French, German, Spanish, Dutch and Italian. Admission to the museum includes a 30-minute audio tour through installations relating to sorcerer's craft. You can also find a small restaurant attached to the museum, which specialises in mussels which are farmed in the clean fjord.

The Sorcerer's Cottage makes up the second part of the museum and is found 28 kilometres north of Hólmavík, which is 20 minutes away. The museum is educational whilst not compromising on fun.

There is no shortage of accommodation and things to do in the Westjords, such as hiking, horseback riding or discovering Ísafjörður, but since the terrain is rough in places, make sure you prepare for how to get around.

Opening Times:

Monday - Sunday: 9am - 6pm (all year)

Address: Höfðagata 8-10 , Holmavik , West Fjords View Larger Map
