The project shows a holistic vision for sustainable leisure landscapes in Skaftárhreppur, including a regional masterplan with several architectonic designs. The vision is based on preserving the landscape's qualities and balancing them with specific tourist target groups. The project is an inspiring example for sustainable leisure landscape planning in Iceland.

The project is a collaboration between the Dutch design firm NOHNIK architecture and landscapes, and the University of Iceland, Skaftárhreppur municipality, UNESCO Katla Geopark and Vatnajökull National Park. For more information visit the website:
