Svalvogar

Svalvogar is a 49-kilometre circular route between the fjords of Dýrafjörður and Arnarfjörður. It usually starts and finishes in Þingeyri and takes the narrow exposed coastal track around the headland (not to be attempted at high tide) and comes back along the Kaldbakur route, past the Westfjords' tallest mountain in the so-called Westfjords Alps. Sometimes called the Dream Road, Svalvogar is among the most beautiful routes in the country. It is not suitable for small cars and is best enjoyed by mountain bike. Be prepared to get out of breath…or take a 4x4.

If passangers are afraid of heights it is advised to start the route from Arnarfjörður and drive it over to Dýrafjörður, then in case of passing another car yours will be on the right side of the road, not quite as intimidating as driving along side the sea.

Sandafell

Sandafell (362m) is a small mountain south of Þingeyri in Dyrafjordur. Perfect for a hike from Þingeyri, it's even possible to drive up the mountain on a 4x4 car. Whichever means of transport you decide upon, the view is going to be well worth the effort.

Today the museum includes all the old machines and blacksmith operation are still in their almost original state. This is a living museum, where visitors can experience the old machine shop as time has stood still. An amazing atmosphere for all ages.

the Graveyard of the french seamen

The connection between France and Iceland plays a big role in the story of Þingeyri and Dýrafjörður. What's left of this connection can easily be seen in, the well taken care of, graveyard of the french seamen in Haukadalur. The French came to Iceland to use the wealthy fishing grounds in the 18th and 19th century. The French also had an idea of colonizing Dýrafjörður as a fishing station and a Army station.

Dyrafjordur

Dýrafjörður is a fjord in the Ísafjarðarbær municipality. At 32 kilometres long, it is among the harder fjords to miss, and even more so because of what's along its shores. This is where you'll find the village of Þingeyri. Like in most other seaside villages in Iceland, the culture and industry have been shaped by the sea throughout the centuries. Þingeyri has a Viking festival ground, friendly swimming pool, a campsite, and a renowned golf course close by.

Between the fjords of Dýrafjörður and Arnarfjörður are the Westfjords Alps, so-named because they are some of the region's only mountains which are not flat topped. Driving towards Þingeyri over Gemlufjallsheiði pass, you will almost certainly need more than one photo stop.
