Set along the eastern banks of Lake Lagarfljot, this forest plantation is the largest of its kind in Iceland with larch, red spruce, and other species added to native birch, rowan, and willow.

There are a series of pleasant walking trails throughout Hallormsstadaskogur with opportunities for berry and mushroom picking during summer months. Although Iceland is not known for its forests, it today plants more trees per head of population than any other nation in the world.
