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.
