Economy

Stöðvarfjörður was formerly known as Kirkjuból. The economy of Stöðvarfjörður was once largely based in the prosperous fishing grounds of East Iceland, though as with many small villages, this began to weaken as modern fishing reforms swept over the country in the 1970s. Today, the economy is largely built around the textile industry and tourism. Petra’s Stone Collection is one such attraction that draws crowds each year to this remote coastal village.
