Dyrafjordur Fjord

Dyrafjordur fjord is a beautiful narrow fjord with a majestic mountain range and rich flora, close to Isafjordur town.  Thingeyri village is located in Dyrafjordur fjord.

Dyrafjordur is narrow and long, accentuating the majesty of the surrounding  mountains. The highland area between the fjords of Dýrafjörður and Arnarfjörður, to the south, is often referred to as the Alps of the Westfjords.

The fjord is the setting of one of the Icelandic sagas, Gisla Saga, which tells about the outlaw Gisli Sursson.
