Yes, I think they were first used for American soldiers. My guide Börkur had given me the full history of Nissen huts in Iceland, but I have forgotten most of it.
I am not able to load these pictures which is a shame. However, I think these were huts that my grandfather participated in building during World War II. I would love to see them on my visit to Iceland. Can you tell me whereabouts these are in Hvalfjörður? Thank you.
Ann, they are located near Þyrill (the farm, not the mountain), on the north side of the fjord. They are close to the road, on the right hand side if you're coming from Reykjavík, and are hard to miss. The drive around the fjord is well worth the detour from the Ring Road - the nature in the area is quite lovely.
Thank you so much! I will be sure to make my way to them.
