Iceland in 16 Days: Day 9, North Iceland, Hofsós

We spent the night in Sauðárkrókur, the largest town in the Skagafjörður fjord region in northwest Iceland. There was a music festival going on, and the town was overflowing. Every restaurant was packed and wait times were as long as two hours. Campers were everywhere.

We escaped to nearby Hofsós, one of the oldest trading ports in northern Iceland dating back to the 16th century. Hofsós, with a population of about 200 individuals, is located 37 KM east of Sauðárkrókur.
