Bíldudalur is a pretty village on the shores of Arnarfjörður with a dark and scary secret: The Sea Monster Museum where the history of sea monster sightings in Icelandic history, folk culture and literature are revealed. A disproportionate number of sea monsters have been spotted in and around Arnarfjörður, so keep an eye on the surface of the fjord as you leave town—are you sure that was just a seal dipping out of view?

Although the population of Bíldudalur is only about 200, music and culture has flourished there for decades.   The village hosts an annual folk music festival with work-shops that guests can attend.
