Location of Hrútafjörður

Hrútafjörður (Icelandic pronunciation: [ˈr̥uːtaˌfjœrðʏr̥] ) is a fjord in the north-west of Iceland. It is around 36 km long and lies to the south of Húnaflói bay.

There are a few farmsteads on the shores of the fjord, and one (tiny) village, Borðeyri, with 16 inhabitants.
The junction and farmstead of Brú is at its southern tip; it serves as a local agricultural service station.

"Hrúta" is plural possessive of "Hrútur" which means the male sheep.
