Ólafsfjörður receives good snow in winter. Check www.skiiceland.is for info on good ski passes for the slopes. A few companies are ramping up winter activities in the pristine peaks of Tröllaskagi, with bases in and around Ólafsfjörður.
There’s also an excellent swimming pool, and nine-hole golf course. Brimnes Hotel offers boat and kayak rentals; check their website for local activities.
Options are few, but good. The cabins at Brimnes Hotel are particularly scenic.
At mealtimes, consider a jaunt up the road to Siglufjörður, where options are better.
Drinking & Nightlife
There are limited local choices for a drink; most visitors head north to Siglufjörður for its broader options.
