The surroundings

Above the town, the river Fjarðará cascades down the steep mountain side with unnumerable small and beautiful waterfalls and runs into Lón, a small lagoon in the middle of the town at the head of the fjord. There is a rather steep road that leads up from the town along the river and across Fjarðarheiði Pass towards the Hérað district and to the largest town in the east, Egilsstaðir. In the past, this proved to be a rather hazardous route, but today, the pass can be traveled on a much safer and better road, which is considered to be one of Iceland´s most spectacular routes.
