North East Iceland
Farm

On a farm called Svalbarð, near Þórshöfn, there is a study centre on the leader sheep of Iceland called Fræðasetur um forystufé. These leaders are a special breed unique to Iceland that can predict weather and lead the flock through storms to safety. An interesting glimpse into the hierarchy of the Icelandic sheep.
