Höfn í Hornafirði, Iceland

While hiking along the remote coastline of Iceland, looking for an old abandoned village, I stumbled upon this turf-roofed buildings that looked like a ancient Viking village. Several signs on the road told me to stay away and that photography was forbidden. My interest was awoken!

As soon I entered the village through the old wooden gate I noticed the buildings were all fake. The place was abandoned except for some sheep, but the location was newly built not long ago. The village was a film set for a Viking film that was never finished.
