More than 30 km long, Reyðarfjörður is the longest and widest fjord in East Iceland. Nearby Reyðarfjörður is the second largest town in the municipality of Fjarðabyggð. In 1940 Reyðarfjörður became known worldwide when the British military arrived onshore and when, a few months later, the Allies assumed control of the country for the duration of the World War II.

The famous, British TV series, Fortitude, was filmed there.
