Ólafsvík is located in the north-west corner of Snæfellsnes Peninsula inhabited by a little over 1.000 people. Ólafsvik, Hellissandur, Rif, Arnarstapi and Hellnar have merged to form Snaefellsbær municipality with the combined population of approximately 1.700 inhabitants. This little fishing village has grown rapidly since 1950 and is surrounded by few of the most beautiful locations in Iceland. At one point in the 17th and 18th centuries, commercial vessels sailed between Ólafsvík and Denmark, and the village was one of the larger trading ports in Iceland. Ólafsvík became certified trading place, authorized by the Danish King and Danish authorities, in 1687.
