Súðavík

The village of Súðavík is located on the banks of Álftafjörður in Súðavíkurhreppur district. Súðavík was first called a village in the population count of 1880 but it started to form in the mid nineteenth century. The boundaries of Súðavíkurhreppur district are in the bottom of Ísafjörður in Ísafjarðardjúp and at the rock called Brúðarhamar which is further inside the fjord of Álftafjörður than Arnarneshamar rock.

The village of Súðavík is divided into two parts, inner and outer habitation. The dwellings in the outer habitation are only inhabited in the summer months but a new district was raised a little further into the fjord after an avalanche destroyed the old village on January 16th, 1995. Súðavík has a range of industries; production of pet food and bag bait for fishing vessels, canning of cod liver, dried fish production, fish farming, a fish processing plant, agriculture and tourism.
