Old Turf Farm at Keldur Reopened

The old turf farm at Keldur in Rangárvellir, south Iceland, has been reopened for tourists by the National Museum of Iceland. The farm is a unique collection of turf houses and the main farmhouse is a sample of the oldest types of turf farms in Iceland.

The old farm at Keldur has been closed for a few years because of repairs but will now be open every day this summer between 10 am and 7 pm. Admission for adults is ISK 300 (USD 3.72, EUR 2.36) and admission for visitors younger than 18 is free.

Keldur belongs to a collection of 40 buildings that are located all around Iceland and preserved by the National Museum of Iceland. Most of the country’s turf farms and turf churches belong to that collection along with several timber and concrete buildings.
