“Sjávarborg is beautiful restaurant offering good food and drinks. It is placed on the beach with amazing view over the see and there is a balcony to go out and hear and smell the see. ”
“I love this museum; I have seen it many times and always find something new. Fun and interesting and Siglufjörður has some nice restaurants and cafes as well. ”
“First of all, this is the main Tourist Information center where you'll get all the information needed. This is a small 'museum' about different species of seals around Iceland and you can go at any time, that is while it's open. What I think is more interesting is to go Seal-watching. A trip on a bout you'll won't regret. The Seal-watching bout is next to the Seal Center.”
“Surtshellir is Iceland´s most well-known lavacave, once inhabited by outlaws and sheep rustlers. It is an enormous lava tube which is easily explored if the right gear is used. The cave is 1310 m long and 8-10 m high, but at the west end it is only 2-4 m high. Walking in the cave is made more difficult by large rocks that have fallen from the roof. The interior of the cave contains "lavacicles" and ice formations.”
Grocery or Supermarket
“The one and only grocery store in Hvammstangi and nearby. It's non-expensive and for a small town like ours, the grocery selection gets 10/10. As you will see, the store has a small liquor store as well where you can buy beer and/or wine (but as you probably already know it's really expensive in Iceland)”
