Gjogur is an old, renowned fishing hamlet at the head of the Reykjafjordur bay. It is best know for its shark fisheries in the past. Sometimes 15 open rowboats left at the same time to spend a few days  shark fishing. Gjogur is one of the totally abandoned communities in this part of the country, but a bit further north the farm Finnbogastadir offers accommodation during summer. Driftwood has played an important role in this otherwise woodless country ever since it was settled.
Djupavik is a former fishing station and a fish processing centre at the end of the Reykjafjordur Bay. A Herring pickling factory was established there in 1917, but was declared bankrupt in 1920.  It was restarted in 1934 and continued operating until 1954.
The driving distance from the capital is around 350 km and 74 km from Holmavik.
