Hunting for the truth. And seals
The history of the house is much more trivial. It is located on the island of Elliðaey, a bit south of Iceland. In 18th century the island was inhabited by 5 fishermen families. As time passed, one after another moved out and in 1930’s the island was completely abandoned.
A hunting lodge
In 1953 the Elliðaey Hunters built a hunting lodge on the island so that its members could use it while hunting for seals and Atlantic puffins. And this is the hunting lodge that went viral.
