Grundarfj÷r­ur township 1786  Prenta sÝ­u

 Grundarfj÷r­ur town 1786-1836

 

Grundarfjordur was one of the first urban areas in Iceland to receive the right to do commerce in 18th of August 1786. It became a trading centre for Snaefellsnes 1786, one of six in Iceland that The King of Demark nominated. The others were ReykjavÝk, ═safj÷r­ur, Akureyri, Eskifj÷r­ur and Vestmannaeyjar.

 

Around 1800 Frenchmen settled in Grundarfjordur with their shipping fleet and left in 1860. They constructed a church and a hospital of their own on the townsite.

 

Grundarfj÷r­ur became a certified retail location in 1897.


Grundarfj÷r­ur harbour was constructed in 1942 and is considered one of the best natural harbours on the peninsula so it should not come as a surprise that the main source of income is fish and fish processing. Other services and industry are growing as well and in recent years tourism has become very important.
