The unique Eyjafjörður
In the middle of the north is Eyjafjörður, a 60 km long fjord, between high mountains. The Eyjafjörður area from Siglufjörður in the north and west to Grenivík in the northeast is the second most populated area in the country with around 30 thousand inhabitants. The vast majority, or two thirds, live at the bottom of the fjord, in Akureyri. Icelandic Times / Land & Saga took a trip, and photographed the landscape and mood today around the beautiful Eyjafjörður. And the name of the fjord is derived from the island Hrísey, the second largest island off the coast of Iceland, which is in the middle of the fjord.
