  Hofn in Iceland
by coceng

The name of this town which is pronounced as 'hub', means 'harbour'.
It is a modern fish-processing town hence it lies by the sea.
Enclaved by the lagoon Hornafjordur, this place is chilly & cold, depended on the weather & the sea condition.
It is also likely to be drizzled with rain all through the year...
This is the Hofn harbour. It smelled fish when I was there; Maybe the factories just dumped the fish intestines to the sea & the wind brought the smell to the whole town ! Maybe...

Directions: It was just about 5 to 10 minutes walking from Hofn Youth Hostel...

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
