Skogar is a small village of 25 souls yet it's an essential stop in Iceland for all those who come to admire the stunning waterfall of Skogafoss. But it would be a shame to leave without having spent a bit of time in the Folk Museum.
I particularly enjoyed the traditional objects, displayed according to types of trade: fishing, farming, and lots of daily objects which have weathered over the years. Aside from the museum, I was highly impressed by the beauty of the old peat houses. In a nutshell, it's a great place to visit on rainy days, but also whenever.
Finally, Skogar has some quality accommodation which could be an excuse to linger a little longer in the area, if you so wish.
