- The abandoned village -
Beautiful scenery and rich History at Hesteyri. The landscape in Jökulfirðir (Glacier fjords) is beautiful with its impressive, steep snow-flecked mountains and it´s quiet and secluded coves. The only means of transportation is by boat. In the late 1940’s, the people of the village Hesteyri, without electricity and roads, made a common decision to move away, and in 1952 the village stood totally abandoned.
