Only the mind (and sometimes the weather) poses limitations on ways to experience Vopnafjordur:
Pick wild blueberries and crowberries in August and September.
Participate in seasonal sheep-herding in the mountains in the fall.
Mount your bicycle and explore the numerous country and mountain roads that stretch all around the area.
Take a fishing rod to the docks for a chance to catch a big codfish.
Check out the diverse biology of the black beaches: shellfish, seaweed, birds, crabs, starfish and more.
