Jörvi in Haukadalur Valley

At Jörvi we produce ceramics and offer an accommodation in a tiny house. The accommodation is open the whole year, but the ceramic workshop is open upon request. You can see works of art being made and buy quality carfts.

Jörvi is a known farm in Icelandic history due to the great fiests that were held there by common farm workers through the ages, until in the late 17th century, when it was banned because of the guests' alleged indecent behaviour.
