Arctic Coast Way gets further funding

We are very happy to announce that the Arctic Coast Way got further support from the regional associations Eything and SSNV. Both of our applications in Uppbyggingarsjóður Vestra and Uppbyggingarsjóður Eystra were accepted and this supports the further development of the Arctic Coast Way. The grants will be used to improve all main working fields of the Arctic Coast Way which are the experience development, the infrastructure planning and the national and international marketing.
We are very thankful for the financial support as it gives us a strong fundament to continue further the successful development which the project has enjoyed so far.

As the launching day is on 8th June 2019, the main focus in 2018 is on experience development in cooperation with Blue Sail and all local companies who like to step into this new and important marketing trend.

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
