Dýrafjörður is a fjord in the Ísafjarðarbær municipality. At 32 kilometres long, it is among the harder fjords to miss, and even more so because of what's along its shores. This is where you'll find the village of Þingeyri. Like in most other seaside villages in Iceland, the culture and industry have been shaped by the sea throughout the centuries. Þingeyri has a Viking festival ground, friendly swimming pool, a campsite, and a renowned golf course close by.

Between the fjords of Dýrafjörður and Arnarfjörður are the Westfjords Alps, so-named because they are some of the region's only mountains which are not flat topped. Driving towards Þingeyri over Gemlufjallsheiði pass, you will almost certainly need more than one photo stop.
