Located on the eponymous fjord, Eskifjörður is a charming town in the middle of Iceland’s Eastern Fjords and has a long tradition as a fishing port, with culture and history shaped by the sea. 

A stroll around peaceful Eskifjörður reveals the town’s traditions, and the historic buildings, piers and Maritime Museum provide further insight to its culture.[ReadMoreMob] Eskifjörður faces magnificent Mount Holmatindur, and from its summit there are superb views across some of the tallest mountains in Iceland. Travel a short way east along the coast and Iceland’s famous spar mines can be found, which has some of the world's largest spar crystals.

The nearby village of Stodvarfjordur is home to the Petra Stone Museum, which boasts a magnificent rock collection gathered locally by Petra Neskaupstaður. This cosy little village is also home to a local market and a gallery run by local artists.
