Ferries-Car rentals


The Hunafloi Gulf is 30 miles across between the peninsulas Skagi in the east, and Krossanes in the Strandir District.  Its greatest length from its mouth to the end of the Hruta Bay exceeds 60 miles.  Its western side is indented with fiords and coves, and three fiords extend to the south.  It differs in depth and the smallest lowland areas are on its western side.  Still nowadays considerable schools of fish enter the gulf and it is rich in shrimp.  Every now and then icebergs drift in and out during the summer.  In 1244, the only sea battle of the country's history took place on the gulf - Cod Wars excluded.
