The oldest existing turf farm in Iceland is located at Keldur.

At Keldur you can experience how Icelanders lived in the past. For centuries, turf houses were the homes of the majority of Icelanders. The turf farm at Keldur is an excellent example of old Icelandic architecture, that blends seamlessly into the natural landscape.

The turf farm despite its age, is one of the largest preserved turf farms in south Iceland. The wooden frame of the hut is characteristic of Roman style. From the hut there is an underground tunnel thought to date from the 12th or 13th century and was probably built during a time of conflict. In addition to these, several outhouses have been preserved.
