Dvergasteinn

Dvergasteinn (Dwarfs´rock) is situated on the northern shore of Seyðisfjörður, abour 3 km. outside the town. The stone is easily accessible and it is a prominent figure on the shore. According to legend, the rock originated on the other side of the fjord but moved across the sea on its own accord as the local church was movoed from one side of the fjord to the other. . The legend states that the rock is a site of prayers for the local dwarfs and the idea of staying behind when the Christian church was moved to the other side was simply unacceptable to them.

Norwegian influence is easily detected in the Eskifjörður and Seydisfjörður architecture.
