Árskógssandur An unique experience

Árskógssandur in Dalvikurbyggd is a village placed by the coast and is the crossing point to Hrísey island, by the ferry Sævar.

At Árskógssandur you will find the local brewery Bruggsmiðjan. There you can have a tour where you'll see how the beer product Kaldi is made and the story behind the company. At Árskógssandur you will also find the Beerbaths, that are unique in Iceland. At the Beerbaths you can either bathe in beer or in the outside hot tubs that have an amazing view over the Tröllaskagi peninsula and over the Eyjafordur fjord. There you will also find a very good and popular restaurant with a great selection of different dishes. We especially recommend the popular burger, Kaldaborgari.

The proximity with nature is high and there are a lot of different hiking routes suitable for everyone and everybody can find something to their liking.

Take a trip to Árskógssandur. There you will get to experience the stillness, safety, and a spectacular view.

Árskógssandur is spectacular every season.

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.
