Just before entering the west part of Reyðarfjörður village, you will be greeted by an attractive pond which is also within the campsite area. Showers, toilets, a washing machine and electricity are all available, and it is only a short distance to Olís petrol station, where those with camping vehicles can dispose of sewage. During the summer season, tourist information is available at the Icelandic Wartime Museum, on Heiðarvegur street. Above the residential area, you will find the Wartime Museum in buildings on the left, which were left behind by the foreign occupation troops from World War II.
This museum explains a great deal about the atmosphere and events of the war and how it influenced the Icelandic people. To get a better idea of the atmosphere during the Second World War, you might want to visit on the last weekend of June and participate in the Military Occupation Day, which is celebrated at the Icelandic Wartime Museum. Fjarðabyggð Golf Club operates a 9-hole golf course on the westernmost part of town.
