Ocean Ports of Call

Borgarfjordur - Iceland Highlights:
Common Eider breeding colony, Alfaborg nature reserve
Borgarfjordur is a small v-shaped inlet or fjord facing the open sea on the east coast of Iceland. Its shores are dotted with small houses, and on one side rests the serene little village of Bakkageroi. It is a friendly small village, where people work on Jasper, a precious stone only found in this part of the country. Nearby is a farm with a Common Eider breeding colony, where the birds are protected for down collection.

Just above the village is Álfaborg, known in Iceland as "the capital of elves and fairies". This is a nature reserve with easy walking paths throughout. Running inland from the coast is a valley about 10 km in length, from which several other valleys branch off. All offer breathtaking vistas and views. The renowned Icelandic painter Jóhannes S. Kjarval was raised in these lovely surroundings and many of them are reflected in his paintings.
