Hofn
This community in the southeast is also called Hornafjardarbaer. It is situated on a spit of land in the only accessible estuary of the country. The mainstay of the local economy is fishing, fish processing, tourism and commerce. People started settling here around an important trading post more than a century ago and the town received its municipal charter in 1988. Visitors are offered varied recreational opportunities, e.g. sightseeing tours, glacier tours, golf, boat tours, whale watching, fishing, cultural events, museums, etc. During summer the Glacier Exhibition is worth a visit. Good accommodation and restaurants take care of the bodily needs and as in every coastal town, fresh fish should be the priority choice on the menu. Part of the municipal landscape has been declared a nature reserve
.

Hornafjordur Airport is in a 10 minutes driving distance to the west from the town.
