Introduction

Despite its stunningly dramatic position at the end of the fjord, Bolungarvík is rather dull and uninspiring. It has a couple of cool sights, though. Bolungarvík used to be connected to Ísafjörður by a perilous track around the mountain Óshlíð, but now there is a 5.4km tunnel connecting the two, and the track is used only for walking.
