Trollpark in Fossatún
Location
Smiðjuloftið
Smiðjuloftið is an activity center in Akranes, a wonderfully typical town right across the bay from the capital of Reykjavik. At Smiðjuloftið you will find a climbing gym with walls up to eight meters high. We also have a bright and cozy loft with spectacular views, a small stage, and activities for families and groups.   During the summertime we only accommodate groups at Smiðjuloftið and we can offer a wide variety of activities for your group; live Icelandic music performed by local musicians, fun and games, climbing on top-rope or bouldering, mini-zipline etc. Groups are welcome to bring their own snacks and dine at the loft.  We also offer short, guided climbing tours to our local climbing spot, for minimum two participants. There you can choose between easy routes for the beginner/novice climber, or something a bit more challenging if you dare, or even abseil beside one of the beautiful waterfalls in Mt. Akrafjall.

Erpsstaðir Travel service
Erpsstadir is a dairy farm in Northwest Iceland, run by farmer Thorgrimur Einar Gudbjartsson and his family. Erpsstaðir are best known for their ice cream but they also produce the Icelandic Skyr, caraway cheese, white and wet cheese and various other dairy products which the "Cream Shop" at Erpsstaðir processes. All the milk for the production is from the dairy cows on the farm. For other ingredient we strives to use local, seasonal flavors whenever possible, such as rhubarb, dandelion honey, and blueberries from the Westfjords. The farmers at Erpsstaðir are pleased to offer visitors the chance to take a closer look at the world of milk production by seeing and learning of different shape the milk can take. Here you can experience a real Icelandic farm and buy homemade artisan dairy products firsthand. We are not distributing the products widely so far the best bet is to access the products directly from the farm.
