Greinasafni: Icelandic Times
Bolungarvík
Coastal mountains stand guard over Bolungarvík (pop. 800). It sits on the edge of Ísafjarðardjúp, making it the most northerly village in the Westfjords.
Bolungarvík is sourrounded by mountains and valleys that include magnificent scenery and rich bird life and flora.
Bolungarvík has been a fishing port since Iceland was settled. The rich fishing grounds at the mouth of Ísafjarðardjúp made it an important site for fishing stations in the era of the rowboat. Opposite is the village of Ósvör, where an old fishermen’s hut from this time has now been restored to its original look.

For travellers, Bolungarvík offers many opportunities, with accommodation possibilities that suit everyone, together with coffee houses, restaurants and museums for everyone to enjoy. In town, there are excellent sport facilities with an indoor swimming pool, but outdoor hot pools with a small water park for the children. Only a few minutes from town, an 18 hole golf course is open all summer long.
In Bolungarvík the Centre for Natural Research has an extensive bird and mammal collection that gives a comprehensive overview of the animal live in the Westfjords.
In the maritime museum in Ósvör,the bygone times of the first fishermen in Iceland come to life with a living museum open every day over the summer.
