A visit to eiderdown farmers

We invite you to visit our farm-takes for about 3 hrs. Guests learn how the eider ducks live and nest, and how the eiderdown is cleaned. Guests can examine how eiderdown is processed through various stages until it is put into quilts and pillows. Trips twice weekly from 25 May until 3 July. It is necessary to book ahead-see the phone number and email address to the right.

We take an easy walk around the living and nesting areas of the eider ducks with guides who are eider farmers at Ytri-Nýpur. Our guests have the opportunity of seeing how this wild bird is protected and cared for so that it feels comfortable. Also are other birds in the nesting area. It is crucial to walk carefully and listen carefully to the guide throughout the walk.

The visit to the farm‘s down-cleaning building where you will have the opportunity to inspect and feel the eiderdown in various stages of the cleaning process and also to see samples of completed products.

Guests are invited to the „down-farmers‘ guestroom“ next door to enjoy light refreshments. In the guest room are items connected with farming in the last years.
