Dalvik is a town on a synonimous cove, which branches off Bay Eyjafjordur, Iceland’s longest. The town is situated at the mouth of the fertile valley Svarfadardalur. Its economy is based on fishing and the fish industry, but the travel trade has shown steady increase. Like in most places in north and northwest Iceland skiing is a popular sport and the facilities rate among the best. There is a variety of interesting places to explore and daily whale watching cruises are on offer during summer.
