It was noon  in Skutulsfjordur.  The sea was perfectly still. The only ripples on the sea are man-made. 

Skutulsfjörður is the fjord that hosts Isafjörður Town. It sounds confusing, but that is the way it is.

The mountain at  the center is called Kubbi. The valley on the left of Kubbi is Engidalur. To the right is Dagverðardalur and Tungudalur. 

We talk a lot about the stillness in Ísafjörður Town and there is a reason for it. It is one of its hallmarks. If you spend a few days in the spring, summer or autumn you will experience the beautiful stillness where everything above sea-level reflects on the calm waters. The peaceful feeling you experience makes the day perfect.
