Kópasker in Norðurþing

Kópasker is on the eastern shore of Öxarfjörður. Its economy is built around services for the surrounding farms, as well as the fisheries despite poor harbour facilities. An earthquake centre was recently opened at Kópasker – a fascinating exhibition, open daily during the summer.

The local folk museum is at Snartarstaðir just outside the village.
