Borgafjörður Eystri

Borgafjörður Eystri is a magnificent fjord tucked away in the mountains of the East. A challenging road down to the village Bakkagerði is duly rewarded by the sheer beauty and tranquillity of the place. The rugged landscape has lovely walking trails through its many contours and the bird life is rich and varied, with the puffin being the main attraction in summer. Its claims to fame are the blue flag marina, Lindarkaffi and the well-known annual music festival, Bræðslan.
