The Englsih page has been inactive during the Covid-19 situation due to few tourist from other countries. We opened new Icelandic page that has been more active this summer. However we have been open the whole summer and will be open for few more weeks or months more, it all depend on the traffic in this strange time.

We just want to remind our guest to stay safe, sanitize and keep social distance. The store has, in it´s 106 years survived two world wars, the Spanish flu, volcanic eruptions and avalanches and we will go through this Covid-19 period.
