The road to the Valley often closes in the wintertime due to the amount of snow it collects and leaves it’s inhabitants snowed in. On this tour you get to meet the family that lives in Baer, a farm deep inside the valley, located amongst multiple ruins of houses from the past. Stadardalur Valley used to be inhabited by multiple farms and one of the first places in Iceland to be settled so it’s story goes way back.
