Arnarstapi is a beautiful area at the foot of the Snæfellsjökull glacier. It is a lively fishing harbour and also a popular tourist destination with a camping site, guest houses and restaurants. The great stone statue of Bárður Snæfellsás by the sculptor Ragnar Kjartansson, is an iconic feature of the area. Legend has it that Bárður is descended from trolls. There is a lovely easy walk between Arnarstapi and Hellnar through a beautiful coastal lava field.
