Gljúfrasteinn, the home of Nobel Prize winner Halldór Laxness, is located in the Mosfellsdalur Valley only 20 minutes’ drive from Reykjavík.

This beautiful home and garden are now a museum dedicated to the author and his life works. Gljúfrasteinn provides an opportunity to experience part of Laxness’ world and his source of inspiration. Weekly musical concerts are held here during the summer.
