Avalance Defence Structures
A part of the great outdoors in Norðfjörður
Over the last several years, impressive structures have been built above the town of Neskaupstaður, in order to protect it from snow on the towering mountain slopes. Footpaths allow you to view these structures and you can even get on top of them to enjoy a stupendous panorama of the fjord.
Currently two identical defence structures have been built, but in all there'll be four structures along the mountain side. The remaing two sets are in early preperation stage.
