Dyrafjordur kayaking & Viking history



We start from Oddan, which is next to the campsite.
We drive a car to Haukadalur and there we are greeted by Elfar Logi Hannesson and Marsibil G Kristjánsdóttir and they tell us about the history of the place. After the visit to the couple, we go to the kayaks and row along land into the fjord to Þingeyri. On our way, we even come across seals and see a variety of birdlife. When we landed in Þingeyri, light refreshments awaited us in the Viking hut
Dýrafjörður is a unique natural pearl and is often associated with Vikings, especially Gisli Sursson. He lived on the land Saebol in Haukadalur.
