One of my favorite pastimes when travelling around Iceland is visiting abandoned farms. There are abandoned farms in every inhabited region of Iceland, although the more remote places such as the Vestfirðir in the North West and the North East corner of Iceland are most abundant in abandonment.
This is not the USA so don’t be afraid you might meet an old stubborn farmer with a shotgun enforcing his no trespassing rights. If you are sure it is abandoned you can go have a peak. Just be careful to leave it exactly as it was. Close all gates and doors you open and make sure you do it well. Nobody is taking care of the farm so be careful where you step. If the floor or staircase is rotten don’t step on it you might end up discovering the basement. Even though nobody seems to care for the farm descendants might visit it and consider it somewhat a family memorial so be respectful and never take anything with you no matter how insignificant it seems.
Have fun and be careful. These farms are a photographers dream.
