The harbor is also very close, from which you can marvel over the magnificent fjords and mountains of Eyjafjordur.
This harbor is also world-renowned for its incredible whale-watching opportunities. Tours from here boast 100 percent success rates in summer, and you are likely to see creatures such humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins, and harbor porpoises. In their nesting season, puffins are also a common sight, and throughout the year, you may get to meet rare visitors such as blue whales and orcas.
