Photographer's Note

It was a long drive from Mývatn to our next accommodation at Hofsstaðir, Skagafjörður.
Too much for 1 day. Plenty of opportunities to stop and take in sights and activities, but not enough time to do justice to it. Should have taken two days for this section. We did not stop at Akureyri Iceland's second largest urban area. One half hour past Akureyri we stopped in Dalvik for lunch and fuel. We passed this house on the outskirts of Dalvik, heading for next stop in Ólafsfjörður in the northeast of Iceland at the mouth of the fjord Eyjafjörður.

Dalvik is a town on a bay which branches off Eyjafjordur, Iceland’s longest bay. The town is situated at the mouth of the fertile valley Svarfadardalur. Its economy is based on fishing and the fish industry, but tourism has steadily increased. In 1934 a mighty earthquake damaged or destroyed many houses in Dalvik and vicinity.
