They were built in 1948 and are 30 meters long. This makes the Arnarnessgöng the oldest and shortest tunnel in Iceland. The Djúpvegur , one of the most important roads in this part of the country, runs through them . The Arnarnessgöng lie a few kilometers northeast of Ísafjörður and pierce deb Arnarneshamar, a basalt rock that extends to the sea. In July 2018, the preliminary investigations for the Álftafjarðargöng (2700 m) began, which will replace this tunnel and should not be so weather-dependent. South of Ísafjörður is Vestfjarðagöng, one of the longest tunnels in the country.
