Súðavík is a small fishing village in Álftafjörður. This area used to be the location of Norwegian fishermen, in Langeyri on the southern edge of the village there is still an abandoned Norwegian whaling station .
Located at the foot of a mighty and, as everywhere in Iceland, woodless mountainside from the middle heights, the place was repeatedly hit by avalanches . Most recently, on January 16, 1995, 22 of the 70 houses were destroyed in an avalanche and 14 people were killed. A large part of the place was then rebuilt elsewhere. In this part of the village is also the arctic fox center , which includes an exhibition and a café. Iceland Sea Angling , an operator for deep-sea fishing trips, is headquartered in Súðavík .
The population decline between 1997 and 2006 was 17%.
