Hellissandur is a village on the Snæfellsnes peninsula in West Iceland. The village is considered one of the first fishing villages on Iceland, existing already in the 16th century, when people elsewhere mostly lived on agriculture. Fishing and fish processing are still the primary sources of income for most people, although also tourism has become important. The village Rif, 3 km away, is often regarded part of the same village. Together they have a population of about 500.
