Discover the importance of the sea to Iceland
On the seaside of Bolungarvík is the Ósvör Maritime Museum, a fascinating exhibit built on the ruins of old fishing huts. Lovingly restored, its highlight is a replica of a six-man rowing boat, among the oldest of its kind in the country.
The museum features a salt house, fish sheds, a fish drying area and tool sheds with all the fishing paraphernalia from a bygone age. Two documentaries about fishing have been filmed here.View The Westfjords
