The Ghost Centre in Stokkseyri is best described as “kitsch.“ Located by the seafront in the small town of Stokkseyri (roughly a 40-minute drive from Reykjavík), it gives guests a taste of a unique aspect of Icelandic literature: the folklore of ghosts and ghost stories.

Visitors can walk through the exhibition while listening to various ghost stories on a headset. The tour takes about an hour.
We highly recommend you stop for a drink at the Ghost Bar before the tour, and then finish up by having dinner at Fjöruborðið restaurant next door.

The price for adults is 2000 krónur (13 euros).
