Skagafjörður is one of the brightest places in Iceland in the darkest winter months thanks to the location of the fjord.
Skagafjörður is also one of Iceland’s most beautiful areas. It is equally beautiful to look over the plains and mountains on a sunny day in winter and summer. The view from Varmahlid is always beautiful.
Skagafjörður is a great horse breeding region and it is very likely that you will see horses standing along the highway in mid-winter. They usually feel good even though outside it is blowing from the north. These are strong and resourceful creatures.
