Hofsós is a tiny village and one of the oldest trading centers in Iceland. Only about 200 people live in it and yet it has a few nice attractions to make it interesting. Across the river from the harbor is the tar-coated, log-built Warehouse, raised in Hofsós in 1777, at the time of the trading monopoly. Not far from here, Hofsós church can be seen. It's very small and colorful, like many other Icelandic buildings. On the beach you can see basaltic rock formations. For a tiny village it has allot to offer and it's an easy stop from the Ring Road.
