Stöðvarfjördur is a neat small town on the northern side of the fjord by the same name.The locals sustain themselves by fisheries, aluminium industry, tourism and art. Like most of the eastern fjords, it is surrounded by spectacular mountains. On the north side there is the towering mountain Stedji and the nearby mountain Hellufjall. To the south of the fjord is the majestic mountain Súlur. The area is renowned for its natural beauty. Lovers of nature will enjoy contemplating the beautiful waterfalls of the river, Stödvará, which joints the ocean at the bottom of the fjord. Many rare and peculiar types of stones and minerals can be found in the surrounding mountains, some of which have contributed to the lifelong collection of Petra Sveinsdottir. Petra´s stone collection in Stöðvarfjörður is a feast for the eye.
