Bolungarvík

For travelers looking for a quaint fishing village drenched in natural isolated beauty, Bolungarvik truly provides breathtaking scenery with a picturesque harbor surrounded by steep coastal mountains in this northernmost village of the Westfjords.  During the summer months travelers enjoy the rich local birdlife, fertile fishing grounds and climbing to the top of the Bolafjall Mountain for staggering views.

Year round visitors can experience how life was for Icelandic fishermen until the beginning of the 20th century at the Osvor museum which is a fascinating replica of an old fishing outpost with traditional grass turf buildings. The friendly village has a number of attractions including some great restaurants serving locally caught seafood, a craft shop, an indoor swimming complex, a natural history museum and an 18-hole golf course.
