了解 赫马岛

 

Heimaey is the largest of the Westman Islands, south of the mainland, and the only inhabited one, with a population of around 4000 people.

The volcano Eldfell is situated on Heimaey. This volcano brought the islands to international attention when it erupted in 1973. The highest mountain of the Westman Islands is also located on Heimaey, the 283 high he tuff mountain Heimaklettur. 

In 1984 fisherman Gudlaugur Fritthorsson saved his life as his boat went down by swimming a distance of about six kilometers to Heimaey, with the sea temperature about 6 degrees Celsius. Director Baltasar Kormakur based his film Djupid on this remarkable feat.

In the first weekend of August, the Verslunarmannahelgi people flock to Heimaey from all around to attend the weekend long outdoor festival Thjodhatid i Eyjum. Read more about this festival in our Top Ten Festivals in Iceland article.
