Árskógssandur is tiny, but has a lot to entertain visitors with.Photo above from Wikimedia, Creative Commons, by Bromr

Árskógssandur is a small community in north Iceland, nestled against the fjord Eyjafjörður.

Located between the larger settlements of Dalvík and Akureyri, Árskógssandur has more to it than its humble population of just around 130 people may suggest. It is the departure point for those taking the ferry over to Hrísey Island, and the location of the Kaldi brewery and beer spa, which are open to visitors.

Whale-watching, day hikes, and even group activities such as laser tag and paintball are all available and popular in the area.

The best way to visit this area is on a relaxed self drive tour. One of the best options for doing so is this 7-day Arctic Coast Way self drive, available in the summer months.
