Eyrarbakki in Árborg

Eyrarbakki is an old trading post on the seashore, just east of the Ölfusá river estuary. At Eyrarbakki, history is there at every step. The town’s heyday was from the mid-19th century to the early 20th century. A number of houses from around 1900 exist, many of which have been preserved and renovated in recent years. ‘The House’ in Eyrarbakki, built by Danish merchants in 1765, is one of the oldest buildings in Iceland. It now houses the Árnes Folk Museum. The Eyrarbakki Maritime Museum is located a short distance from The House as well as a few private museums. The Flói bird conservation area is located north of Eyrarbakki. The seashore is popular for walks and exploration.
