Núpstaður Farm

No longer open to the public, Núpstaður is the easternmost farm in Katla Geopark and is known for its remarkable old turfed roof buildings which are representative of historical architecture in Iceland. Most notably, Núpstaður is home to the old turf chapel, which is one of the few remaining in the country today. If you look up into the mountain backdrop, you will see two waterfalls that cascade down into a river that provides water to the farm.
