Kayak

Hlynur Oddsson, an experienced sailor, knows the fjord like the back of his hand. 

 

Tvisongur

Tvisongur is a sound sculpture by German artist Lukas Kühne and is located on a mountainside above the town.The work is built of concrete and consists of five interconnected domes of different sizes. The heights of the domes are between 2 and 4 meters and they cover an area of about 30 square meters. Each dome has its own resonance that corresponds to a tone in the Icelandic musical tradition of five-tone harmony, and works as a natural amplifier to that tone
