On the southern shore of Patreksfjörður fjord you will find beautiful Örlygshöfn – a wide vista of seashore encompassing a thick finger of yellow sand, which makes the fjord water look tropical blue on sunny days. Here you are also very close to the Egill Ólafsson museum, which is a fascinating and eclectic look at aspects of life in the southern Westfjords – including an American plane and a Viking boat! The museum has been there for over 30 years and also features a café and various temporary exhibitions.
