Reyðarfjörður

Reyðarfjörður was our home for almost three years and we loved it. It’s situated at the end of the largest fjord on the east coast of Iceland (at approximately 3 o’clock when looking at a map!).

 

Once a trading and fishing port, these favorable harbor conditions saw it became the second largest of the Allied bases in Iceland during WWII. There is quite the extensive World War II museum located at the old camp above the town.

It was only a small village but it had everything we needed. The service station was our “go-to” place not only for fuel but also for fast-food and pastries of all things!

Reydarfjodur - our town!

Summer or winter, it was wonderful!

It was truly a photographers paradise!
