Alafoss added to the list of protected areas

The Minister for the Environment and Natural Resources in Iceland, Svandís Svavarsdóttir has announced that Álafoss, the waterfall behind our store in Mosfellsbær, has been added to the list of protected areas in Iceland.

When Álafoss was established at the end of the 19th century, it was marked as the true beginning of Iceland’s wool industry. Álafoss is located in the old factory house by the waterfall Álafoss that was used to drive the mills of the old factory. Therefore we are excited that this historical area around the waterfall has been added to the list of protected areas.
