Dalvík is a town on the west coast of Eyjafjordur bay, a 20min drive up north from Akureyri. Dalvík has a large harbor area which is interesting to explore. During winter season (jan-april) the ski-area is active and visiting Dalvík in those months is both a different and exciting experience. Dalvik has a great swimming pool with an excellent view inside the beautiful valley and up the mountains. There are good bistros / coffee houses in Dalvík where you can get an excellent fish soup and other local dishes.
In Dalvík you’ll also find an interesting museum of local history and arctic exhibition. Not to be missed.
From Dalvík you can catch the ferry to Grímsey Island
