Snæhvammur, the outermost farm on the northern side of the Breiðdalur valley. Late in the 18th century a polar bear was killed right at the front door after having chased a man who was walking there on his way from Stöðvarfjörður. Burial mounds have been found near Snæhvammur, with relics at least 1,000 years old, now kept in the National Museum. In 1940 a mine exploded on the beach nearby, causing damage. The farm was moved many years ago because of the danger of avalanches, but is now in danger from sand erosion.
