Reforestation

Due to long term detrimental land use since the settlement of Iceland the native forests of Iceland where decimated.  The lowlands, hills and valleys at Skalanes were forested and since 2007 a massive effort has gone into planting over 100.000 native birches, rowans and willows back into the landscape with the purpose of accelerating the natual reforestation and create more diverse resilient habitats for plants and animals.

Archaeology

Human interaction with environment has had an major lasting influence on the landscape in Iceland and it has also shaped the resources used and available.  Archaeology … Rannveig… Important for science and also entails a cultural landscape.

Visitors

Guests to Skalanes are welcome to pass through on the path to the cliffs where a good platform and seating area was rebuilt in 2019.  We encourage everyone to stay on paths to minimise possible disturbance to resident flora and fauna.  There are no facilities, food or seating area at the field centre for independent visitors.
