Tyre tracks left in a dusting of snow in the Icelandic town of Eyrarbakki
Eyrarbakki is a fishing village on the south coast of Iceland with a population of about 570 people. The village is founded on the Great Pjorsa Lava.
For centuries, the harbour at Eyrarbakki was the main port in the south of the country, and Eyrarbakki was the trading centre for the whole of the southern region extending from Selvogur in the west to Lomagnupur in the east. By about 1925, however, Eyrarbakki lost its importance as a trading centre. The latter part of the 19th century saw a great increase in the number of oared fishing boats. In fact, although trade and fishing were the main occupations in Eyrarbakki, the natural harbour conditions were not good, and after the bridging of the river Olfusa near Eyrarbakki, the harbour fell into disuse.
