About Skotufjordur

The Sting Ray Bay is about 10 miles (16 km) long and narrow. The road building along the bay was difficult because of the absence of lowland stretches. All the farms on the bay have been abandoned and nature has taken over again.

The otherwise rarely spotted bird of prey, the white tailed eagle, is frequently seen in this area. Other interesting species of birds, such as the gyrfalcon, the Merlin, the eider duck, all kinds of waders, plovers, the whimper etc. are also in abundance. Sometimes people spot various species of whales tumbling close to shore.
