If you want to enjoy Iceland, be sure to take it real slow and easy. Fast-forwarding through the island can give you a lot to exclaim about, but if you take the soulful way, it will give you so much to enjoy. There are many hidden treasures lying around. Brjánslækur may not look like much from the outset. It is, of course, the jetty for the ferries to Stykkishólmur on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, via Flatey. Most people immediately leave the dock and hurry off to somewhere else. But, apart from being by the beautiful and pristine Vatnsfjörður, this particular spot in Iceland has Surtarbrandsgil.

In Surtarbrandsgil, you will find the best-preserved plant fossils in Vestfirðir, approximately 12 million years old. Leaf traces from various types of plants are quite clear, i.e. maple, elm, spruce and pine. The fossils are very beautiful but also educational. They tell us that the climate in Iceland 12 million years ago was similar to the Mediterranean climate today.

A short distance away, by the shoreline, you will find the ruins Flókatóftir. They are believed to be the ruins of Hrafna-Flóki's settlement. The ruins of the first houses raised in Iceland.

It might surprise many people that visit Iceland and travel around the country, how many towns and villages have a kind of short history.  Although the settlement in Iceland started around 870, most of the towns and villages began to develop around the middle of the 19th century, and some even at the beginning of the 20th century.
