HVALFJARDAREYRI

Region: West Iceland
Coordinates: 64.315002° N 21.5810242° W

The spit of land Hvalfjardareyri is on the southern shores of the Whale Bay. Before the road was built around the bay, travellers were ferried from there to farm Katastadakot on the opposite side. Some discussions about a car ferry from this spot led to some preparations, which were eventually abandoned. During the latter part of the 17th century a trading post developed there. Considerable quantities of gravel and sand are pumped from the bottom of the bay off the spit for constructional purposes. Collectors of strange and half precious stones are often seen nosing about in this area.
