First, early spring, so is the middle of summer festival. Last festival is in mid-August. Thousands of people visit this old 19th century town every year. Every house and everything has a great story to tell the next generation. Foreign tourists who are interested in Icelandic history and nature visit the town in summer as winter. In winter it is the major surf from the Atlantic, which calls for tourists to watch the great waves breaking along the coast.
