Stykkishólmur is a charming Icelandic fishing town that nestles on the banks of Breidarfjordur Bay at the northern end of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. Built around a picturesque natural harbor, this eco-friendly town with little traffic and its tightly knit community transports you back in time. The cluster of vibrantly painted 19th century buildings at the heart of town catches the eye of every visitor. Museums with interesting themes and a serene church offering stunning views are some of the landmarks within the town. Handicraft galleries, restaurants, and quaint shops line the main street. Unique geothermal pools with their regenerative waters are perfect for a relaxing soak after a busy day. Its convenient location makes Stykkishólmur an ideal base for exploring the numerous islands that dot the bay. See the land from the water by tour boat or kayak. Helgafell mountain is apt for a short hike and the nearby Kirkjufell mountain and waterfalls provide an excellent photo opportunity. As night falls, the Northern Lights shine through the darkness making for a memorable end to a great day!
