Fast Food in Hrútafjörður

Staðarskáli N1

Petrol, bathrooms, wi-fi, a store and a grill bar – stop in, as there's not much else along this stretch of Ring Road for a while (until Blönduós, if you're heading east).
Museum in Hrútafjörður

Byggðasafn Húnvetninga og Strandamanna

Located, 13km north of Staðarskáli, this regional museum includes the well-constructed interior of a 19th-century homestead and the shark-fishing boat Ófeigur, built from driftwood in 1875.
