BREIDDALSVIK
TRAVEL GUIDE
.How 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 endemic tree 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.

The distance from the capital is about 617 km.
