Located in the remote Strandir area of the Westfjords Region, Kotbýli kuklarans - The Sorcerer's Cottage awaits visitors in the summertime. For hundreds of years, common Icelanders have used harmless magic to bring their lives a little more comfort and ease. Inside this turf house visitors can learn about the methods used by the people of 17th century witch hunts to protect themselves from evil spirits. There are strange signs all around representing old Viking runes and Catholic superstition and tales of powerful sorcerers like Svanur á Svanshóli lurk in nearby lands.
