EAST ICELAND TRAVEL GUIDE
to get there
Valley Breiddalur is the largest lowland area of the Eastfjords and the
mountains framing the valley are the highest in the region (1100-1200
meters above sea level). The salmon river
Breiddalsa is the most renowned and prolific
of the area.
Ever since the
adoption of Christianity, the
parsonage Heydalir has been in existence. The small Jorvik
forest is one of the centres of the Forestry Service. One of the rarest
species, European Aspen (poplars; Populous tremula),
thrives quite well there. The
village Breiddalsvik bases its existence on fishing and fish processing.
Tourism plays an increasing role for the community.

capital is about 617 km.
