Welcome to www.fljotavik.is .

Many are here after searching words like Fljotavik or Straumnes, Icelandic names for a bay and a mountain, close to each other  in the extreme far North-West part of Iceland. Both names appear on a CD by the Icelandic band “Sigur ros” or “Sigurros”.

Except for this page, this site is exclusively written in Icelandic and is really all about how people lived – or survived even –  in Fljótavík from around the year 1000 up until June 16., 1946 when everyone moved away and the land was left deserted.

In 1969 some relatives of –  and people that had moved out  in 1946 – started to build the summerhouse Atlastadir –  and from that year many more summerhouses have been build.
