Where you’ll be

Bolungarvik, Iceland

Bolungarvík is a small village so everything is within a walking distance. There are 2 grocery stores in the village, a bank and a post office. One of the grocery store is very small and over 100 years old called Bjarnabúð (Bjarni's store). There you can buy little bit of everything, like food, clothes, books, toys, Icelandic lopi, yarn and more. There is a restaurant and a pub / coffee house in Bolungarvík and for those who like to get pampered there is both hair and beauty saloon in the village and the local swimming pool has a sauna and hot tubs where you can enjoy the nice mountain view.

In the nature museum in Bolungarvík you can see a polar bear and just out side of the village there is the Ósvör Maritime Museum. It contains double 19th century fishing base, a salt hut, a fish drying area and a drying hut. The curator greets visitors wearing a skin suit that is similar to the one Icelandic fishermen wore in that era.

In the summer you can drive up to the top of the mountain Bolafjall, witch has a breath taking view over the fjords, and to Skálavík which is a small remote bay with magnificent black sand beach and powerful waves.
In winter you can go skiing in Ísafjörður (15 km) or if you like mountain skiing the Westfjords is THE place to be.

You will enjoy your stay in Bolungarvík if you like nature, peace and quiet, hiking and trekking, fishing, snow, arctic surfing and the northern lights.
