Outdoor Maritime Museum at Osvor

Get into the real fishing spirit from days of yore at the tiny outdoor maritime museum at Osvor, where visitors are greeted by a resident fisherman in full sheepskin gear. He'll educate and entertain with tales of how life was for Icelandic fishermen until the beginning of the 20th century.

Located by the shore at the eastern edge of Bolungarvik, the primitive encampment consists of a 19th century replica fishing station with salt shed, fish drying platform and a restored rowboat.
