Bleiksá river and waterfall

Bleiksá river and waterfalls are what greets you when arriving in Eskifjordur.

Eskifjordur Church and Cultural center on the left, the town camping spot is on the right behind the trees.


The Bleiksá river starts by the mountain Harðskafi and goes down to Eskifjord, passing the church and cultural center as well as the local camping spot.

Hiking is fairly easy up to the main waterfall itself and has numerous smaller and beautiful waterfalls and scenic spots on the way.
