Leir 7 creates and produces goods from the Icelandic clay found in the Fagradal valley of Skarðsströnd, Dalir. The workshop and gallery are open all year round.
Groups are welcome and light refreshments are offered, such as scallops, dried fish and kelp, all fresh from the area. Visitors are told how the clay from the valley is made into the ceramic products that are for sale.
Leir 7 is an Economuseum (www.economusee.com), which includes production workshops showing the production of goods from the raw material to the finished product.

Holy Mountain, 73 m with a breathtaking panoramic view across Breiðafjordur Bay. A viewing dial is at the top.
Folklore advises anyone climbing the mountain for the first time to walk straight up without looking back or speaking and three wishes will be granted. The wishes have to be of good intent and the wisher tells no one and faces east when making them.
A small remnant of a wall on the mountain top is dated 1184 and was a part of a nearby monastery built at this time.
Drapuhlidarfjall Mountain is beautifully colourful. It is composed of sulphur, basalt, jasper, rhyolite and lignite. As usual with lignite deposits, fossiled plants and petrified wood can be found. Drapuhlidarfjall is 527 m high.
