- Unspoiled nature -
Drangsnes is a hamlet at the head of the Steingrimsfjordur Bay. It started developing after 1920.
A tall rocky outcrop on the shore is called the Old Woman, or the Hag, which is said to be one of the ogresses who turned to stone when the sun came up while they were trying to separate the Westfiords from the mainland by a large ditch.
Fishing and fish processing is the main source of employment and many visitors call on Drangsnes during summer to enjoy the tranquillity and beauty of unspoiled nature.
