The farm Hraun í Öxnadal in the North Region in Iceland has a special place in every Icelanders heart. It is the birthplace of Jónas Hallgrímsson one of our most admired poets. When you drive by the farm, it is not difficult to understand how the spectacular landscape inspired Jónas in is youth. The landscape and the surrounding area is probably the reason he became a natural scientist and a poet. The farm is right on the Ring Road just before entering the town of Akureyri driving from Reykjavík and is hard to miss.
