Stórakerald and Tyrkjaurð

Historical mountain sites.

Steðji is the name of the mountain that stands tall behind Stöðvarfjörður town. On the side of this characteristic mountain is Stórakerald, which is an unusually large ravine. Besides being an old route landmark, there are old tales of the residents in Stöðvarfjörður seeking refuge in Stórakerald and defending themselves by throwing stones at Turkish pirates, who made a foray in Iceland in the early 1700s. This tactic paid off, running the Turks out of Stöðvarfjörður and giving the rocky area in front of the ravine the symbolic name of Tyrkjaurð, or the Turkish scree.
