East Iceland - NORÐFJÖRÐUR

LoadingAdd

Located in the upper part of town by Víðimýri street, Neskaupstaður campground provides an exceptionally scenic view. It is also right by the large avalanche protection dam below Drangagil ravine, so you can enjoy an even greater panorama of the village, mountains and bay by walking up onto the dam. The campground also offers toilets, showers, electricity and a playground, as well as a beach volleyball court. The tourist information center is at the towns’ local swimming pool, which is not far away and stays open year round.

The Neskaupstaður Museum House is a beautifully restored building down by the old harbor, and right in the middle of town. The three interesting museums this building hosts are the Tryggvi Ólafsson Art Collection, Jósafat Hinriksson’s Seafaring and Smithy Collection, and the Neskaupstaður Museum of Natural History. You can dine in style at Kaupfélagsbarinn restaurant, just across the street, or enjoy the atmosphere at Nesbær, which has built up a solid tradition as a café and bistro. The local swimming pool is outdoors and has a superb view of the mountain ranges, besides being well equipped with hot tubs and two water slides, which ranks amongst the longest ones in Iceland. The pool is also near “Lystigarður” Village Park.

Heading west from the village, you can enjoy short horse rides or longer tours with Skorrahestar horse rental, or you can play golf at the scenic nine-hole course. If you want to follow the coastline from the east end of the village, you will enjoy the glorious landscape of the country park with a number of hiking paths. You might like to visit the little cave called “Páskahellir” which is one of the best-known destinations in the park. Of the three major summer festivals of this fjord is the Sailors’ Day which is a three day festival and starts on or near the first weekend of June. This is the “Eistnaflug” rock and heavy-metal festival which takes place every year on the second weekend of July; and Neistaflug which is a family outdoor festival that is held together with the Barðsneshlaup run during the long holiday weekend which includes the first Monday of August every year. Neskaupstaður is one of the six villages in the municipality of Fjarðabyggð.
