About Hofn in Hornafjordur

This community in the Southeast is also called Hornafjardarbaer. It is situated on a spit of land in the only navigable estuary of the country. The main trades are fishing, fish processing, tourism and commerce. People started settling here around an important trading post more than a century ago and the town received its municipal rights in 1988.

Visitors are offered varied recreational opportunities, sightseeing tours, glacier tours, golf, boat tours, fishing, cultural events, museums etc. During summer the Glacier Exhibition in the old supermarket building is worth a visit. Good accommodations and restaurants take care of the bodily needs and as everywhere in the coastal towns, fresh fish should be the priority choice of those on the menu. A part of the municipal landscape has been declared a nature reserve.
