What to see in Grundarfjördður

Grundarfjörður, a quaint village situated in the west of Iceland, is a destination where nature's dramatic artistry takes centre stage and the surrounding landscape beckons travellers with an array of experiences.

Arguably one of the most photographed spots in Iceland, Kirkjufell Mountain is a stone's throw from Grundarfjörður port. This strikingly symmetrical mountain, often referred to as Church Mountain, rises 463 meters above sea level, offering panoramic vistas of the surrounding fjords. The nearby Kirkjufellsfoss waterfall, with the mountain as its backdrop, provides an idyllic setting for photography enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. Hiking trails around Kirkjufell are well-marked, inviting visitors to explore the area's natural beauty. Whether bathed in the golden hues of the midnight sun or framed by the aurora borealis, Kirkjufell's enchanting presence is a testament to Iceland's wild allure.

A short drive from Grundarfjörður will lead you to the mystical Snaefellsjokull National Park, home to the glacier-capped volcano that inspired Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth. The park's unique landscape is dotted with lava fields, craters and caves, offering a plethora of trails for hiking and exploration. Visitors can embark on guided glacier tours, delve into the depths of Vatnshellir lava cave, or simply marvel at the rich birdlife and diverse marine animals along the rugged coastline. The area is not just a natural wonder but also a place of historical and cultural significance, reflecting the traditional Icelandic way of life.

Grundarfjördður's port is a hub that has long supported the village's livelihood. To get a glimpse into the local culture and history, visit the Grundarfjörður Maritime Museum. Located in one of the oldest houses in Grundarfjörður, the museum displays artefacts, photographs and stories that paint a vivid picture of the fishing heritage and the lives of those who have braved the North Atlantic for centuries. After exploring the museum, take a leisurely walk through the village's streets, lined with charming houses and local businesses that reflect the community's spirit. You can also join a fishing trip to experience firsthand the craft that has sustained this community through the ages.
