Hesteyri - Vei­ileysufj÷r­ur

Sailing time from ísafirði to Veiðileysufjörður is about 1 hr. There was 3 farms at Veiðileysufjörður Steig, Steinólfsstaðir and Marðareyri in the past.There was also a whaling station at Meleyri the Norwegians built in 1897 but they dismantled it and moved it 1903 to Þórsvík in the Faeroe Islands. Veiðileysa is a good place to start for walking about Hornstrandi. One way is up from the bottom of the fjord to Hafnarskarð (519 m above sea level ) and down to Höfn in Hornvík. It is a 4-5 hr walk. Then it is possible to go round Hornbjarg and that way to Hrafnfjörður or go the different ways that lead from Hornvík, Hælavík, Hlöðuvík, Kjaranxvík, Fljótavík, Aðalvík, Látrar over to Hesteyri.
