Fjordur - Mjoifjordur: If you want to feel as if you own the world

Here you can feel as if you own the whole world as the fjord is very secluded, very peaceful, beautiful weather as it's not windy, fish in the sea and river, clams on the beach (safe for eating), clean sea/beach and the place has the most variety you can find in flora in the whole of Iceland.

The house comes with half a fjord, so no matter whether you grab bed and breakfast or rent the house to yourself you are at the same time renting half a fjord. There is a small fishing boat and you are provided with fishing rod and I promise you will not go out to sea without catching something within a very short time and you do not have to go far, catching fish from a clean un-polluted sea.

Highly recommended.

The house itself has all modern facilites from washing machine to internet, despite being about 30-40 minutes from next town.

Isn't half a fjord to yourself unique enough? Beautiful views, salmon in the river (august and sept), rich flora, fish in the sea and the mountainhills are covered with blueberries in August/Sept. A dreamlocation you can visit from May to November.

Höfn in Hornafjörður campground.: Camping by the sea in South-East Iceland.

The campsite at Höfn in Hornafjörður is a very good campsite. The facilites are excellent, and the nature is beautiful there, I camped right by the sea and there are several different locations where one can camp. You pay at the information center by the campsite and there is a sitting area for the campsite and cooking area. You can get access to electricity for recharging your mobile or batteries at the informaion desk for a small fee. See my tip on the town Höfn under things to do Höfn

If you are staying for a long time in Iceland it is best to buy the Camping card

The beautiful surroundings, right by the sea and only a few kilometers from Vatnajökull, Europe's biggest glacier.
