Activities in Þingeyri

Þingeyri makes a marvellous place to get out in the great outdoors. Belgian-Danish couple, Wouter and Janne, who run the Simbahöllin café at Fjarðargata 5 (t 899 6659), rent out top-quality mountain bikes (10,000kr per 24hr) as well as running horseriding tours into neighbouring Sandadalur (8500kr for 2hr 30min). If you’re stuck for transport to Þingeyri, they can usually arrange to pick you up from Ísafjörður.
