Grundarfjordur

Grundarfjordur is a growing community on the fjord Breidafjordur near the midpoint of the northern coast of Snæfellsness peninsula. The site is characterized by a unique climate and unusually beautiful surroundings.

Fishing is the chief industry in Grundarfjordur, half of the town's working population being employed in this sector, although other services and industry are growing as well. The town is considered unusually beautiful and well-kept and has received several awards for its neat appearance.

The town is situated in front of an impressive mountain range which has a slightly alpine look. On the sea side, there is a volcanic mountain which is called Kirkjufell and forms a small peninsula.

Nature, community life, and the area's history have attracted many tourists from both Iceland and abroad to Grundarfjordur. The opportunity to enjoy natural beauty in such peaceful surroundings is considered a privilege by those who normally have to cope with the noise and bustle of city life. People who enjoy the beauty of the fjord and take an active part in the life of the community welcome the absolute relaxation that this peaceful district offers.
