Iceberg in Eyjafjörður

We had a surprise “arctic” guest yesterday in Eyjafjörður fjord, just outside of Hrísey island. A 20-meter high iceberg came in and instantly became the main attraction for all those who were at sea, dethroning the whales for at least one day.

Visit Nort Iceland sent out its photographer, Rögnvaldur Már Helgason, on a whale (and iceberg) watching tour.

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.
