Tucked away in Iceland's eastern region lies Mjoifjordur, an 11-mile-long inlet also known as the ‘Narrow Fjord’. As you wind your way along the road towards this remote destination, the spectacular landscapes and towering mountains offer a glimpse of Iceland's true natural beauty. Home to only one tiny village called Brekkuþorp (where just 14 people live year-round), Mjóifjörður may just take the title of the ‘most remote’ and unspoiled place in Iceland. Upon arrival, you'll be greeted by crystal-clear waters, rugged cliffs, an abundance of wildlife and old turf-roofed farmhouses dotting the landscape,
which add charm and character to the region. Mjoifjordur is an adventurer's dream, offering plenty of opportunities for hiking, kayaking and fishing. Take a leisurely stroll along the fjord and spot seals basking on the rocks, or venture out on a kayak to explore the fjord's hidden coves and caves. For those who like to earn their keep, try your hand at fishing for cod, haddock and other fish that thrive in these icy waters. During the winter months, the nearby Vattarnes Peninsula adds to the allure of Mjoifjordur by offering a chance to witness the awe-inspiring Northern Lights in all their dazzling glory.
