Tálknafjörður is a tiny village on the southern part of the Westfjords. It is sheltered by high mountains, creating a fabulous natural harbour protected from the strong waves of the Atlantic Ocean.
For centuries, locals have made their living from fishing and nowadays the economy is boosted by groups of tourists enjoying sea angling in the summer time.
A local “must-see” is „Pollurinn“ or the „pool“, a geothermal pool located in the hill-side, close to the village itself. The hot water flows unfiltered from the ground, resulting in greenish algae floating in the water and sticking to the edges of the pool. The stunning views of the fjord, mountains and the ocean will without doubt take your breath away. With rustic changing facilities, it does not come any more natural then this!
