Bildudalur is a beautiful little village that enjoys some of the best summer weather in The West Fjords. Due to its position, the sea breeze rarely reaches the town, making it an excellent place to hang out on sunny days.
The largest industry in town is a sea mineral plant that processes calcified red seaweed, harvested from the seabed, mainly used in animal feed, hygiene and fertilizer products.
Although the population of this picturesque village is only about 200, music and culture have thrived there for decades. Therefore it should be no surprise that there are two museums found in the village. The Icelandic Sea Monster Museum opened in 2009, offering an action-packed multimedia display of the local tales of sea monsters, which have played a colorful role in Icelandic folk culture for centuries. ‘Melodies of the past’ is a peculiar music museum in town, exhibiting Icelandic musical memorabilia.
