Saudarkrokur is a town on the  Skagafjordur bay. Fishing and fish processing is the main source of employment, but light industry and services to the neighbouring farm area also contribute thereto.  Two islands on the bay, Drangey and Malmey, are within a close distance and sea cruises are on offer to Drangey with its sheer cliffs, where one can climb to the top under supervision of experienced guides. Mt Tindastoll is just north of town.  A special sightseeing tour along the mountain slopes takes you to a hot spring on the coastline where there is an abundance of driftwood, and multicoloured pebbles. Like other inhabitants of the Skagafiord district the people of Saudarkrokur are ardent equestrians and their devotion to the sturdy Icelandic horse is notorious. Each year an annual equestrian festival is held near Saudarkrokur and Varmahlid. It attracts visitors from all parts of the country and abroad.

An annual event is held in spring at Saudarkrokur "Saeluvika" or "Pleasure Week", which also attracts visitors from all over. Coastal fishing, trout and salmon fishing, boat hire, pony trekking, and golf are but few of the many recreation activities on offer.

The driving distance from Reykjavik is about 321 km by the Whale Bay tunnel.
