Información acerca de Eyrarbakki

Eyrarbakki is a fishing village in south Iceland with a population of around 570 people, located at the end of the great Þjórsá lava field. For centuries Eyrarbakki was a main port and trading centre for the south.

The oldest house in Eyrarbakki, built in 1765, features a regional folk museum and there is a charming old church in the village, built in 1890. The breaking waves seen from the seaside are breathtaking. The nature around Eyrarbakki holds a particular attraction and there are good opportunities for enjoying the rich birdlife of the area, particularly at the Flói natural reserve, north of the town.
