About Rivedal

The valley of Rivedal is a small farming hamlet situated near Dalsfjorden, between Holmedal and Dale.  Rivedal is surrounded by stunning nature, with ample opportunities for fishing, mountain hikes or lighter walks in the ambling coastal landscape.

 

Rivedal is best known for being the place from which the first Norwegian Vikings left to settle on Iceland and a statue of Ingólfr Arnarson is situated at the foot of the valley.  An identical statue can also be found in Reikjavik, capital of Iceland.
