Fishing

A day out fishing is a good family activity, and the north of Iceland has countless lakes and rivers, e.g. Svínavatn, Ljósavatn and Ysta-Vík near Grenivík, where the children can sit on the banks with their fishing rods. Then, at the end of the day, they can look on with pride, as their catch is grilled for the family meal. But one need not go far from the town or village to do some fishing; sitting at the end of the pier can also be fun.

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.
