Borgarhöfn in Suðursveit

Just east of Borgarhöfn is Hálsaós estuary, where Hestgerðislón drains into the sea. Hálsar, the low cliffs at the estuary, were once an important fishing centre; people are said to have walked right across the glacier from north Iceland to work there. Fishing largely stopped in the area in 1575 when almost 100 men from 17 boats drowned in a single day.
