Eyjafjordur is located in north Iceland and Dalvik is in the middle of the fjord, 30 minutes drive from Akureyri on Tröllaskagi (troll peninsula). If not for anything else the sailing in the picturesque landscape of Eyjafjordur is truly worth it. Big mountains all around, the rock of Hrolfssker in the mouth of the fjord and Hrisey Island the pearl of Eyjafjordur in the middle, make the scenery stunning but also can offer protection from wind and big ocean waves which is excellent for inexperienced sailors. So just imagine taking pictures of a giant fluke going down in that beautiful surroundings.
