Christmas Eve  at Eyrarbakki
For extended families, workplaces and groups of friends

Christmas devotion with an emphasis on both the spiritual food and that which is subject to the laws of mouth and stomach.


In recent years, Bakkastofa has held Christmas vigils that are shaped according to the needs of guests,

in smaller and larger groups.  Our village and the atmosphere in Eyrarbakki are ideal for evoking the Christmas child in us with song stories and good food.

It's not without reason that cinematographers use this old village as Christmas scenes, because little needs to be changed to create that experience for the white screen.


The Bakkastofa programme's platform extends far and wide. In the home building in Gamla Kaupfélagið and Gamla Frystihússsalur and from there over to the Red House which prepares a glorious Christmas table.


The Christmas vigils can also be linked to the House's Christmas tree exhibition, Byggðasafn Árnesingar, where you can see Christmas trees with roots all the way to the origins of that tradition in the country. There is also the opportunity to stop by Eyrarbakkakirkja, which gives a beautiful occasion for devotion to Valgeir's singing before the Christmas meal is eaten.

The Christmas songbook is not far away and in harmony the age fades away and the child list explodes in the mind  and hearts.
