Bolungarvík is a fishing village and the only town in the municipality of Bolungarvíkurkaupstaður. 

Bolungarvík is in the westfjords of Iceland, approximately 14 kilometres from the town of Ísafjörður.

It was one of Iceland’s oldest fishing outposts, well positioned close to abundant fishing grounds. The quiet countryside attracts some tourists, mainly in summer. Tourist attractions include a camping site next to an indoor swimming pool with a steam room, a room for relaxation and outdoor hot tubs and a water slide.

The natural history museum of Bolungarvík has quite many mammals and birds on dislplay. Verslun Bjarna Eiríkssonar, nicknamed Bjarnabúð, has been in business since 1927 and is one of the oldest stores in Iceland. 

Bolungarvik was the location for Nói Albínói, a film by Dagur Kári about a teenager living in a remote Icelandic village who loses his family in an avalanche.
