Ólafsfjörður is a town in North Iceland with a population of approximately 785 people. 

The town is located in a fjord of the same name. Together with the town of Siglufjörður, Ólafsfjörður forms the larger municipality of Fjallabyggð. 

History 

Ólafsfjörður started to form at the end of the 19th Century, before growing around its harbour during the golden days of bountiful herring fishing in the area in the 1940s and 1950s. Today, the herring is gone, but fishing still makes up the town’s main industry, along with services related to tourism. 

Activities

The town boasts numerous sporting groups, respectively dedicated to golfing, horse riding, skiing, shooting and snowmobiling. Skiers can make their way to Tindaöxl, where there is a lift that can take you up the slopes of the mountain above the town. Within Ólafsfjörður, there is also a geothermal swimming pool that is open all year round.
