Dalvík is a thriving fishing village and departure harbour for trips to Grímsey. The beautiful mountain backdrop provides excellent ski slopes in the winter so Dalvík is fast becoming a ski-hub in the area. The Hvoll Folk Museum has exhibits of two famous locals and is well worth the visit. Here you see the tallest man in the world, Jóhann the Giant, and the third president of Iceland, Kristján Eldjárn, as well as other interesting displays.
