Miðfjörður is a small fjord in the northwest of Iceland. Miðfjörður is fed by the river Austurá, is roughly 2 km (1 mi) wide and 10 km (6 mi) long, and empties onto Húnaflói bay. The town of Hvammstangi is on the eastern slope of the fjord. The main highway through rural Iceland, Route 1, passes by the southern tip of Miðfjörður.
