Hólmavík is a small village on the Steingrímsfjörður fjord and has been a commercial centre for more than a century. Memorials to the poet Stefán frá Hvítdal and one-time prime minister, Hermann Jónsson are in the village.

The village’s oldest house has been rebuilt and now houses a restaurant where you can see old photos of the village. There’s lots to do for tourists, such as trout and char fishing in nearby lakes, sea cruises, whale watching, golf, and tours to the island of Grimsey.
