The extraordinary summer light gives a unique ambience to this area. Grundarfjörður is known for its “strange light” especially at night as the midnight sun sets on the horizon, hiding behind the west fjords and veiling all in soft shades of reds, oranges and yellows. The sea can change from a bright ocean blue to the more refined subtle turquoise going to a pinky-blue as the sinking sun shades across the fjord. You have to experience it to know it. So come on over.
