Hrafnseyri

Birthplace of Iceland’s beloved hero.

Hrafnseyri is best known as the birthplace of Jón Sigurðsson, the pioneer of Iceland‘s independence movement. This ancient parsonage and farm on Arnarfjörður has an even earlier history. It is named after Hrafn Sveinbjarnarson who lived around the 13th C, and is said to be the first trained doctor in Iceland.
