Culture in Eyjafjarðarsveit

Culture in Eyjafjarðarsveit

There is a lot of cultural activity for tourists to experience in Eyjafjarðarsveit. You should give yourself at least one day to visit all the interesting places. Get to know the icelandic horse and even watch a horseshow, learn about The Great White Plague (Tuberculosis) in a historic exhibition, experience the unbelievable collection of small things in a Museum, feel the genuine Christmas spirit all year around in Christmas wonderland  and visit one of our six beautiful Churches. If you are travelling the second weekend in August you have to stop by at the Artic handicraft and design market at Hrafnagil. Creativity and happiness is in the air for four days and plenty to see and touch and buy.

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.
