Øksfjord is the administrative centre of the municipality. It is located at the mouth of the Øksfjorden on the mainland. The area also has several glaciers. The Øksfjordjøkel glacier is the largest and perhaps the most challenging. The smaller one is Langfjordjøkel.

The village of Øksfjord was historically an important regional fishing village that included a fish processing factory and fish oil factory. The factories have been closed since the 1980s, but since then some fish farms have been in use.

Grieg Seafood Finnmark owns and operates the northernmost fish farm in the world, close to the North Cape. Our facilities in Finnmark enjoy the shortest export route to Russia in Norwegian fish farming, including the major cities of Moscow and St. Petersburg.
