Bíldudalur is like many small towns and villages in the Westfjords—nestled deep in a fjord against some intimidating mountains, comprised of what appears to be two or three streets and a handful of small houses. But Bíldudalur is special for two reasons. First, the location itself shields the village from Iceland’s characteristic relentless winds, making the weather relatively fair all year round. Second, it sits on the shores of Arnarfjörður, home to the bulk of Iceland’s sea monsters. In fact, Bíldudalur has a museum dedicated to these creatures, which made our visit an unforgettable experience.
Beware of Sea Monsters!
