About

Iceland’s least populous; the municipality of Árneshreppur has only 50 inhabitants. The road connecting the region to the rest of Iceland can be closed for weeks during winter, leaving transport by air the only option. Hikers on their way to Hornstrandir can take the boat from Árneshreppur, and there they find a museum, a café and accommodation. One characteristic of the area are two herring factories, built in early 20th century, one in Ingólfsfjörður and one in Djúpavík. There, huge houses and facilities were built and profitably used to process herring. Then, as quickly as the herring had appeared, it disappeared and the factories were closed down. An exhibition has been put up in Djúpavík, recounting the interesting history.
