On this hiking tour, we walk from Patreksfjörður to Tálknafjörður by an old route between the two fjords. While walking through Litlidalur after passing Lambeyrarháls, the local guide will tell you about the history of Patreksfjörður and Tálknafjörður. Both are rich in history and were used as bases for sailors, merchants, and navy mariners from England, France, Germany, and the Netherlands.

From Lambeyrarháls, we walk to Suðureyri, where Norwegians established and ran a whaling station around 1900. In Suðureyri is a famous ground depression believed to be a fairy settlement. If travelers lie down to rest in the depression, they are destined to dream about their future. There is great birdlife around Tálknafjörður and the scenery is amazing.
