Loðmundarfjörður

Loðmundarfjörður is a beautiful deserted fjord north of Seyðisfjörður. It was probably inhabited since settlement started in Iceland. It is known that 143 people lived there in 1860, but their number decreased after that. Loðmundarfjörður was deserted in 1973. You can still see quite a few traces of settlements in the area, and there is still a tiny church by Klyppstaður.

Today, Loðmundarfjörður is a popular destination for hikers, as the fjord is part of the hiking trail system Víknaslóðir. It is possible to drive to Loðmundarfjörður in the second half of the summer, but it is necessary to have a four-wheel-drive car.
