Bus to Hvammstangi

Village Hvammstangi on the Midfjordur bay is a commercial and tourism centre for the county, and has been a trading post since 1846.  It is located 7 kilometres off the ring road.  The village develloped around the trading post and the inhabitants relied on the fisheries (shrimps mainly) and fish processing until this operation was shut down.  Nowadays its livelyhood is based on services and tourism, which plays an increasing role.  Travellers spend a few nights there to enjoy and explore the splendid nature of the Vatnsnes peninsula and to watch seals and birds.  A visit to The Icelandic Seal Centre is also an important addition to the educational recreation in Hvammstangi.
As well as a visit to the biggest wook factory in Iceland, Kidka. At the tourist information center at the Seal Center you can get a map of the town with hiking paths and places to see in town.  The swimming pool in Hvammstangi is excellent.  Good hotel accommodations are on offer, and the camping grounds are equipped with the best of facilities.

The distance from Reykjavik is 197 km by the Whale Bay tunnel.
