Hamarsfjörður

Hamarsfjörður, a sea reservoir that lies between Berufjörður and Álftafjörður, is a particularly beautiful area with many reasons for outdoor activities. Melrakkanes separates Álftafjörður and Hamarfjörður and out of that is Melrakkanesós which is a narrow channel between Stapaey in Starmýrarfjörður and Þvottáreyjar which are in the mouth of Hamarsfjörður, but the fjords fall into the sea through the estuary. Another narrow channel, Holusund, is on the east side of Þvottáreyjar and lies next to Búlandsnes.

On the north side of Hamarfjörður is Hálsfjall, but up from the fjord to the west is Hamarsdalur and its top draft is at the foot of Þrándarjökull. Grassy places can be found in the valley. Hamarsá falls through the valley, which has its main source up on Hraun and Hamarsdalsdrögur. Glacial water from Þrándarjökull mixes with it and it can often be very watery. The river flows from many cliffs on its way down the valley and forms beautiful waterfalls. When you reach the bottom of the valley, the river flows through your ears, until it flows into the sea at the bottom of Hamarsfjörður.

Off Hamarsfjörður and Búlandsnes on Papagrunn is the largest island in the Eastfjords, Papey, about 2 square kilometers in size. In Búlandsnes, south of Berufjörður, is the town of Djúpivogur.

It is recommended to take a good time travelling through Hamarsfjörður and Álftafjörður to enjoy the natural beauty the area has to offer.
