Digranesviti lighthouse

There is a marked trail from Bakkafjörður to Digranesviti. The lighthouse was built in 1943-1947 and is 18,4 m tall. It's good to park your car at Bakkafjörður and walk to the abandoned farm Steintún and then Digranesviti is a bit further or around 1 km. The hike is beautiful and so is the view from the lighthouse. Be careful when you walk across the cliffs to get to the lighthouse.

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.
